Why is it important to have professional real estate pictures ?
Professional real estate photography makes a highlight on your property.
Many real estate agents today are led to believe that the photography quality of their smartphones is sufficient for taking real estate photographs. But nothing beats an SLR camera with a wide angle lens. Smartphones today are capable of taking wonderful photos, but for real estate they still have some shortcomings. For example, they don’t have wide angle lenses. As a result you often just have parts of rooms or rooms that look very tiny. A wide angle lens on the contrary will give an impression of wideness to the room. Be careful, however, not to fall into the trap of too wide angles. It make photos where the space appears larger than it really is.
Then a digital SLR camera also allows a much better management of the brightness of the photos with fine adjustments, without altering the final quality of the image.
Professional photography is also about attention to detail.
When you look at many real estate listings from private owners, you realize that there are some very easy to avoid details that are missing from their photographs. For example: open toilet bowls, poorly placed furniture, beds not made, visible (too) personal objects, etc. These details casually give a negative image to future prospects, who could associate them with a lack of maintenance of the property for example. Have a look here below to some amateur pictures vs professional ones for you to compare by yourself.
As you will have understood, it is essential, for the sale of your property, to publish beautiful photographs of it, and above all, to let the professionals do it!
