You may ask yourself, “Why do I need professional photographs of my home?” You may think you can take the pictures yourself or have your real estate agent take them and you’ll be fine. But, to sell your home and showcase it in the best possible light, you need professional photographs. If you’re not convinced, let us explain why.
A professional photographer can see what others can’t. You may not see that rubbish bin or colorful soap dispenser as a problem, but these things can hinder the image of the home. A professional photographer is trained to see these things and will remove them from the scene. They also know about lighting techniques and how to adjust their camera’s settings to complement the environment and make your home look its best.
A professional has integrity. A photographer wants to release the best possible images. They are dedicated to producing perfect images of your home and take the time to do so.
A professional can negotiate small spaces, even when they may be hard to capture. Professionals have high-quality cameras and lenses. A wide-angle lens can make a small room, like a powder room or breakfast nook, look spacious.
Professional photographers understand space and composition. A viewer must be guided through a home. They have to feel aware of where rooms are located and professional photographs can help tell that visual story. In professional photographs doors are open and lights are on to give the viewer have a full understanding of a home.
A professional will select and edit photographs expertly. Postproduction is the art of choosing the right photos and enhancing them. A professional photographer will take the time to highlight your home’s unique features and give you beautiful photographs that will be seen by potential buyers.
If you still aren’t convinced, read these real estate photography statistics from Agent Impress:

- Listings with professional photographs sell 32% faster, spending only 89 days on the market compared to 123 for other homes.
