So you’re ready to market your home and create a nice virtual tour or photography gallery, but all you have is a smartphone. Do you snap some pictures using your iPhone and use those as your marketing material? Hopefully the answer is no. Although smartphones are improving the quality of their cameras, they do not even compare to the quality a professional RTV virtual tour photographer can produce.
Smartphone photography can be great for taking quick pictures and sharing them with friends online, but to achieve the “WOW Factor”, you really need a professional photographer. So put down the smartphone and let’s talk about why you should hire an RTV professional for the job!
When a typical buyer looks at an online listing, the first thing they do is look at the photos. They want to have an idea of what kind of home they are buying and get a feel of the flow the home provides. Some real estate agents and homeowners just cannot find the time to photograph their listings, so this is where a real estate virtual tour provider comes into play. These professional photographers and virtual tour providers can create beautiful 360 virtual tours of a home or property so that potential buyers can virtually walk through and get a feel for the home. Photos speak much louder than text.
• 40% of all participants don’t even look at agent comments because they are more focused on the photography.
• According to a 2010 study, homes that are professionally photographed (compared to amateur and phones) sell for up to $19,000 more!
• Homes photographed by a professional receive 61% MORE online views!
• Hiring a professional listing photographer only costs 0.09% of the median U.S. home price.
Selling a home requires assistance and with the help of professional photographers and virtual tour providers, you can save time and sell your property much faster. So let a professional help you and see what RTV has to offer!
