Fact: professional real estate photography earns up to $116k more

Real Estate Photography

Despite a significant difference in quality between point-and-shoot cameras and DSLRs, over 80% of real estate agents pass on professional photography. Incredibly, some agents even opt to use a camera phone to post their listing. I believe RedFin.com said it best, “if you are not using professional photography to market your home, you are not really marketing your home.”

In a recent study by the Wall Street Journal they found

listings with nicer photos gain anywhere between $934 and $116,076.”

For an investment of just $199, a home owner has the potential of selling their home for an extra $116,076! I don’t think we need to breakdown the math for you to realize professional real estate photography is critical for receiving top dollar for your property.

According to RedFin.com, homes shot with a DSLR receive an average of 61% more views, have a 47% higher asking price per square foot and an increased likelihood of selling when priced above $300,000.
