Today’s Real Estate market is geared to people browsing photos and videos of properties as the first step for finding a home.
Many people will not even contact a realtor until they have done their own searching to get a feel for the homes that are on the market. One of the places that many go to is Zillow.com.
The good news for most who are selling is that the market is so hot that most properties in my North Metro Atlanta, Georgia market are on the market for a very short time. I am hearing that some houses have multiple offers within minutes of going on the market.
You would think with this hot market photos are not needed. However, if you have photos then people will possibly put a bid on your house just from seeing the photos. They cannot risk losing a house waiting to schedule an appointment.
I like taking all the basic photos of all the rooms, but also believe most homes would benefit from a couple drone shots.
Taking photos only from the ground doesn’t always show off your property the best way.
You still need all the shots of the home.
I like to shoot many of the rooms from opposite corners, so that you can really get a feel for the space.
Besides those inside shots I try and get the outside views that people are looking to see.
