We strongly recommend that you use a professional architectural photographer. After years of observing that homes with customer supplied photos didn't sell as quickly or for as much money as homes with professional photos we almost decided not to allow customer supplied photos. Most of our customers are big "do it yourselfers". It was a very difficult decision, especially when a study done by Redifn confirmed our observations. In the end, we decided to reluctantly allow customer supplied photos, and unless you ask us point blank, we won't tell you they look awful and don't show enough of the room and that the windows are over exposed and that they are crooked and dark and have a yellow color cast. Please, please, please, even if you don't use our photographer, if your home is a nice one, especially if it is above "first time homebuyer" range. Use an architectural photographer. (Not a wedding or portrait photographer, their lenses are the exact opposite of what you need) Get someone that has solid experience with architectural photography.
There are a couple of issues with photos that we will act on right away. If you use copyrighted photos that were taken by someone else, (for example a previous REALTOR®) we will remove those immediately. Ditto if your photos include people, especially children. Remember, this is the internet, need we say more?
The web site saves you from cleaning for an hour or two only to hear the potential buyers tell you that they live around the corner and have always wondered what your home looked like on the inside. It allows buyers from out of the area to look at the photos of your home on the internet. When buyers see your website address in your other advertising, they can look it up on the web and get the facts without the abbreviations. Think about it. When you receive a phone call from a buyer that has seen your website, they already know what your home looks like, where it is located, how much you are asking and they want to see it in person! You have a “pre-screened” interested buyer!
