Why Real-Estate Agents NEED to Hire Good Photographers.

It drives me crazy as I’m shopping around for apartments and houses and see the poor quality of photographs that agents and individuals listing their properties with.

As an agent not only do great photographs help you lease apartments and sell houses but they also set you ahead from other agents that you may be competing against.  Philadelphia is a booming housing market and agents are constantly looking for more listings. Quality professional photographs are the way to do that.

Let me show you a top-notch example.  I live in a small studio apartment in Philadelphia, PA. I love it here!  My apartment is small, only 280 Square Feet.  Here are the photos that were on the listing for my apartment.

Not much to look at.  Other than knowing this apartment is only 280 square feet already I wasn’t exactly turned on by these photos.  However, I loved the neighborhood and the price was right so I thought I’d give it a look.

Boy was I glad I did.  I signed the lease within 48 hours and set a date to move in.  Now as a photographer I thought I would take the time to show you how much better the space can look.  I have done zero renovations on property just set up my standard camera and lighting setup and this is what you get.

Which one looks more welcoming to you?

This is a perfect example of why agents and anyone listing properties need to have high quality photographs.  If you’re one of these individuals be sure to check out my rates in getting high quality images for your property.
