New Study: Professional Photos of Listings Boosts Sales
Professionally photographed homes tend to sell for more money and sell faster than homes listed with point-and-shoot cameras, according to a new study by the real estate brokerage Redfin.
The study has found that homes priced between $200,000 and $1 million sold for an average of $3,400 to $11,200 more than their list prices when professionally photographed than homes with amateur photos. For homes priced between $400,000 and $499,999, the study found that homes professionally photographed sold for $11,200 more.
In an analysis of 22 markets, the Redfin study evaluated the sales success of homes shot professionally with a digital single-lens reflex camera versus homes shot with amateur, point-and-shoot cameras. The study evaluated homes priced between $200,000 and $1 million.
The study also found that homes that were professionally photographed also tended to sell faster. For instance, homes in the $400,000 range that were professionally photographed sold 21 days faster than those photographed with point-and-shoot cameras.
It makes sense that listings including professional photos would sell faster and for more money. After all, a quality presentation of a product can make all the difference in the world. And we all know what it means to make a good first impression. A photo of a home online or in a broker’s office is the first impression that a buyer gets. That image can make or break a prospect’s decision to go visit the home.
