Real Estate Photography Project in Chelsea, NY – Duncan Avenue Studios, Hudson Valley, New York
It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In real estate, pictures can make a huge difference in how quickly your home sells. Thanks to technological advancements, buyers can get an intimate view of the home they are interested in without ever having to step out of their couches. It is more important than ever before that buyers do their research. Using filters such as location, price, school districts, square footage, etc., they search through sites. The moment they narrow their search to a location that appeals to them, they begin flipping through photos.
In many cases, the photos are what pique a buyer’s interest in your home and encourage them to contact their real estate agent. It is therefore important to work with a real estate agent to have professional photography done before putting your home on the market. To produce images that resonate and appeal to sellers, your agent should have expert knowledge and connections with professional photographers. It’s better to include many photos than just one, so settling for a few isn’t a good choice! Duncan Avenue Studios team led by Art Director/Photographer Maxwell Alexander works with the best real estate photographers in the tri-state area who have an eye for the right angles, the right lighting, and capture the best features of your home through high-quality photographs.
Buyers do more research today than ever before, so homes with more photos tend to sell faster. You have a better chance of selling your home quickly if you can find as many buyers as possible beforehand. According to the National Association of Realtors study, the average time spent on the market for homes with one photo was 70 days, while those with 20 photos spent 32 days. In addition to helping you sell your home faster, professional photographs can also help improve your offer. For homes selling in the $200,000-$1 million range, those with high-quality photography sell for $3,000-$11,000 more.
It’s important to emphasize the words professional photography because you need photos of high quality. HGTV shows inspire us with amazing visuals of beautiful houses, but nothing compares to the quality and direction of a licensed agent and a professional real estate photographer. Often, it is the first impression a buyer has of your house before they step foot inside. 89% of buyers who used the internet to help with their home search found the photos very helpful. Photographers that specialize in real estate that your agent knows personally will be able to refer you to them.
