If you are looking to photograph your own house or if you are a Realtor and looking to get photos to promote your listing, it is essential to work with the best real estate photographer in the area and get the top quality photos. Here are top points to consider before choosing the best real estate photographer:
Find photographers who specialize in real estate to narrow down your choices. If they aren’t experienced in dealing with real estate listings, even the best photographers might not deliver the results you want. Carefully review their portfolio and see if you can find a variety of home styles and prices. It doesn’t take much to photograph a newly built million-dollar mansion with river views. Chances are it will look good no matter what. Where you’ll see the real difference if there are examples of good quality and creative approaches to lower-end properties. Your real estate photographer must not only be an expert in photography but should also understand the real estate market and the target audience. Would be best if he or she is also an NYS licensed real estate salesperson so that they are up to speed with all the real estate marketing regulations applicable to properties.
It is not necessary that someone who photographs houses for sale is a real estate photographer. It is important to have pictures taken by someone who uses a DSLR camera with multiple lenses to get all the right angles of your listings. Furthermore, most real estate photos are post-produced via the HDR process in order to balance lighting conditions, so your real estate photographer also should be up to speed with the latest post-production techniques.
Best real estate photographers offer a wide range of services to accommodate your marketing strategy and get the best photography assets. Is aerial photography something you need for the farm that you are selling? Are there exterior and interior dusk shots available for that mansion of yours? Do you want to take photos that emphasize something specific or require specific equipment? Knowing what your photographer can do in advance is a big help.
You also need to know if your real estate photographer is fully insured. Ask your photographer if they have professional liability and general liability policies.
Obviously, you want the photos back as soon as possible so you can get to market your listing. If editing is needed or you’re working with someone who has a slower turnaround time, you need to know how long it will take. Photographers who specialize in real estate can take pictures and get them to you very quickly.
