 To
Sellers I would say yes, photos are very important when marketing a property. We have become a visual society. Most buyers view properties on the internet before ever contacting an agent. Great photos keep potential buyers interested and help make the decision to view the property in person. When a listing only has 4 or 5 photos buyers wonder if the rest of the property is not worth looking at, or needs work. Buyers sometimes draw the wrong conclusion when there are not enough photos.

 Photos should be a good representation of the property, highlighting the main attributes and features of the home or property. Photos should grab the buyer’s attention and peak their interests to want to see more.

 To Buyers I would ask them to take into consideration that not every home is easy to photograph, due to angles and layouts. Also some colors can actually photograph a different hue depending on the lighting in the home or time of day the photos were taken. Like the old saying goes, “You can’t judge a book by its cover”; you need to take a closer look and step inside to see what every home has to offer.
