The importance of hiring a professional photographer when Selling your home in Laguna Hills
Whether you are the owner of the property or the agent, the photos of your listing are highly important as people want to see every corner of the house before they actually come see it. If you have no photos at all or have low quality photos, potential buyers don’t want to waste their time visiting the property. Why? Because you failed to flaunt the best features of your home, and if you have flaunted it, you failed to take the best photo of it. That is why, it is important to hire a professional photographer when selling a home in Orange County.
Your photos are your first impression. High quality photos reflect a high quality home and a high quality owner with pride of ownership. You wouldn’t want to show up on a job interview with torn jeans and t-shirt. You need to look good. The same thing applies to your real estate, and when selling homes these days.
Reasons why you need good photographs is that most buyers don’t have the time to look at every listing in the neighborhood, so maybe they only pick the nicest one or two to see. You might ask how do they determine which house is the nicest? The pictures that are posted online by your agent! If your agent doesn’t use a professional photographer, he or she might be selling you short. Professional photography could easily be the perfect edge, to get your home sold first.
Why you should hire a professional photographer?
- Professional photographers take professional and high quality images that yield a faster sale rate. When you take the photographs on your own, using a smartphone or digital camera might be a good idea most of the time, but it doesn’t give good quality photos. You need proper angling to flaunt the best features of your home that only a professional real estate photographer in Orange County could do.
- Professional photographers have all the fancy equipment, tools, skills and experience necessary to produce quality photos that wow potential buyers.
- Hiring professional photographers will help you yield more money because good photography sells homes.
- 80% of home buyers find their home online before they even walk into the door.
Professional real estate photographers are trained to capture the right angles, utilize the length, emphasize important details, and manipulate the lens to get the best possible photos to showcase your property. This will attract as many potential buyers as possible.
How much real estate photographers cost?
A professional photographer will set you back from about $275 to $1,000 per property. According to Wall Street Journal, listings with good and high quality photos sell anywhere from $934 to $116,076–as measured by the difference between asking and final price–over listings using photos from point-and-click cameras. I would say that is a pretty good return on investment, wouldn’t you?
