With nearly everyone having a smartphone, anyone can be a photographer; however, it is vitally important for real estate photos to be taken by a professional. Professional photographers understand the techniques that will make your home stand out and can take pictures that will appeal to buyers in many online locations. Professional photography can sell a house faster and for more money. Real estate photography is not something that you want to DIY. Real estate photography is an investment and one that can make a huge difference when it comes to selling your home. Here are several reasons why we invest in professional photography.
1. Lighting techniques
In addition to the importance of lighting your home, a professional photographer also understands the importance of composition when capturing photos. Capturing the right composition of your home will provide potential homebuyers with an accurate representation of the floor plan and how the rooms in your home are connected. It will not do you any good to only take close-up photos of the features throughout your home. While you may want to include some close-ups of the features in the kitchen and bathrooms, it is just as important, if not more, to show how these rooms fit into the overall structure of your home. Professional photographers understand how to connect the spaces in your home together to give the potential homebuyers viewing your Pebble Beach real estate the best idea of how the rooms in your home flow together. Professional photographers can use patterns, symmetry, and textures on your property to showcase the best assets in your home.
3. Searches start online
The majority of potential homebuyers start the search for Pebble Beach houses online. You need to capture their attention and win over their emotions from the first photo they see of your home. If they are not wowed by the photography you choose to display, they will move on to other properties and will not take the opportunity to view your home in person. Professional real estate agents often post houses for sale on several websites and resources online. This means that your property could be viewed by hundreds of people. That won’t mean that anyone will want to actually view your home if they are not immersed in your home when looking at the photography. In addition to the website listings, homes for sale are often shared across social media. Photography is incredibly important for social media algorithms. Not only will individuals not want to stop and look at your property with poor photos, but the social media algorithms will also favor posts with high-quality, engaging photos.

5. Prepare Your Home For Photography
When preparing to sell your Pebble Beach real estate, you must ensure that your home is set up to make the professional photographer’s job easy. You can take care of several details beforehand to ensure that the professional photographer can make the most of your home. You will want to start by decluttering and depersonalizing your home. You want to make sure that potential homebuyers can see themselves in your home, which can be hard to do if the space is filled with your belongings and photos. Make sure you do a deep clean to remove any dust and dirt in your home that might appear in photos. Outside of your home, you will want to ensure that your landscaping is trimmed and in good shape and that all your yard decorations are put away. These details will ensure that the professional photographer can focus on taking the best photos that will show off your house rather than having to work around details that shouldn’t be included in real estate photography.
