You don’t need great photos to sell a home

Let’s be honest, you can sell a home with a photo that is taken with a smart phone. You can even sell a home with a photo that’s a bit out of focus and poorly composed. If the home is competitively priced and well presented then it will sell. It might take more than the average days on the market for the Hamilton area but it will eventually sell.

That’s not why you need a great set of photos.

You need amazing photos to sell you!

If you want to be seen as a leading real estate agent in the Hamilton GTA market then you need photos that match your brand.

Some agents try and justify it by saying that a particular listing is too cheap, or that they don’t want to spend too much on photos because they don’t think it’s worth it.

The limiting factor in that kind of thinking is that those lower quality photos are damaging the reputation of those agents every single day they are online. If those photos are not amazing, they don’t make buyers say ‘WOW!’, then they’re not making that real estate agent look amazing either.

And that’s a big problem.

If you’re a real estate agent what should your photos be doing for your business?

Those photos should not just be trying to bring people to your open house. Rather, they should be working hard for you:

An Agent who is an excellent negotiator and sales person needs to match that reputation with photos that reflect their status.

The data says image quality matters

An article in Forbes draws from this infographic that has been updated for 2018 and says:

Simply put, consumers believe that good images are essential to an e-commerce experience:

67% of consumers say that the quality of a product image is “very important” in selecting and purchasing the product. It’s not just that images are valued, it’s that they’re often more valued than other content:

When home buyers and sellers are browsing through listings online, are they only building assumptions about the homes on the market? No, they are also developing a picture (pun intended) of the real estate agent selling those homes as well.

And if 67% say an image is very important, and more than half of them say a high-quality photo really matters, then it stands to reason that an agent with amazing photos for their listing is going to get their attention.

Note though that this is only going to get more serious for agents as we move into the future and the millennial generation, which has grown up with social media and their focus on visual marketing, moves into the buying market.

“Consumers expect a first class visual experience when they shop or browse online, and they are rewarding companies that give them what they want. The numbers tell the tale”
— Forbes Magazine

The photos are the most important part of a real estate marketing campaign:

In the 2018 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report they found that buyers looking at properties online rated photos as the most ‘useful’ feature along with detailed information about properties for sale. The most important website feature was photos for nine in 10 buyers under the age of 62.

What does this mean?

Primarily it means that the real estate agents need to carefully consider the images they are using because those photos get a LOT of attention and play a large roll in clients viewing homes.

No matter which media you are using to market your product or service, the message is clear: great images are essential for getting the most out of you marketing efforts.
— Forbes Magazine
The power of images lies in the fundamentals of human nature; we’re wired to notice, remember, learn from, and respond emotionally to visuals.

People remember only 10% of information three days after hearing it, on average; adding a picture can improve recall to 65%

Kendell's team at APi360 tells a story using pictures. Every home looks inviting, comfortable and high quality. The lighting creates a warmth that reaches out and grabs the buyer summoning them to visit. If that is not enough, Kendell actively participates in staging the home so the camera captures the best angle. Her composition is beyond compare. Without a doubt, Kendell and her team are the best of the best.

APi was referred to me by colleagues and boy were they right!

Kendell and DJ were such a pleasure to work with. Friendly, helpful and a really pleasant experience. Very responsive to phone and e-mail inquiries, very quick with revisions and updates. The most impressive part…and arguably the most important is the end product.

I could not have been any happier with the photography, 360 tour, website and videos for both YouTube and Instagram. Just amazing! See for yourself.

Not sure if you really need this?

If you’re thinking that this all sounds great but you still have a few questions then lets run through some of those now…

Don’t all photography companies do basically the same thing?

When it comes to choosing a real estate agents, you get what you pay for. Some are better than others, and a really good agent is not going to be one of the cheapest. Photographers are exactly the same.

There are cheaper photographers out there, but their focus is on doing the highest possible number of shoots in a day as possible, and so they are trying to rush through a photoshoot as quickly as possible. That creates a poor impression with the home owner who is home at the time, and that reflects poorly on the agent that recommended them.

Other photographers are just getting started in real estate photography, and they start out cheap to get more clients but their lack of experience shows through.
