Why you should use professional photography when selling your home

Main Treasure Valley Life

It’s no secret that shopping for homes is done almost entirely online now. When you are looking at a listing, what’s the first thing you look at? The featured picture! The quality of photos used in real estate makes the sale. Here’s why.

There is always a clear distinction between amateur and professional photography. The pictures are sharper, well-staged, and allow everything in view to be captured. Here are some base facts:

  • According to IMOTO, professional photography can help sell your home 39% closer to the original listing price.
  • The Wall Street Journal reports that buyers spend 60% of their time looking at listing photos.
  • Listings with professional photographs get 61% more views (Redfin).
  • Listings with professional photographs sell an average of 32% faster (PR Newswire).

Clearly, having a pro take your listing pictures is the way to go. At Build Idaho, we have professional photographers on staff to take listing pictures. In addition, we process all of the photos and listings in-house to ensure they meet our standards and exceed the sellers. It’s all part of our efforts to sell your home for top dollar.
