Finding your dream home has changed dramatically since the dawn of online communications. A person wishing to find his/her next home used to turn immediately to real estate professionals to begin his/her quest. Today's reality is that potential buyers go straight to the Internet and only contact realtors after identifying those properties that have already sold themselves through Internet marketing. The decision to consider or reject a potential home is often made in just a few seconds.
The most important tool that a seller has to create interest in his/her property is gorgeous photography and presentation. Doesn't it seem odd that most realtors take their own photos with point and shoot cameras made for amateurs or worse, their cell phones? Studies have shown that high-quality photography will increase inquiries, get more showings and elevate the actual selling price of your home.
Bishop Photographics specializes in high-quality HDR real estate photography. Standard photographic techniques do not match the dynamic range of the human eye. Therefore, details are often either blown out (overexposed and thus indistinguishable) or hidden in the darker areas of the photo. HDR photography is a process, impossible to do with film, that allows us to create beautiful photography of your home without complicated lighting techniques. We can actually shoot twelve photos within about an hour. This enables high-quality photos of your property to be easily affordable and add a tremendous value on a cost-versus-results basis.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that photography, such as ours, will increase your closing price by at least $900, and luxury properties can get as much as a $100K bump! Also, for homes over $300K, the likelihood of sale will increase by up to 36%. Click on WSJ in the menu to link to the actual story. The Redfin tab links to the Redfin Blog analysis, which offers additional proof of value for high-quality listing photography.
Of equal importance, have you ever noticed that MLS systems destroy your photos? We have our own proprietary presentation system. Click on the VirtualTourNEO tab and feast your eyes on the full screen HD presentations that are available to all of our clients. Now you can supercharge your listings and really standout way in front of the herd.
Considering the huge number of homes for sale and the rapidity that a buyer can screen through them, our photography and virtual tour presentations are your best tool to make that instant great first impression.
We look forward to working with you!
