The Real Estate Photography Workshop

As a real estate professional you have to make marketing decisions for each listing. The listing price will often determine the marketing budget for a property. You hire a professional photographer to shoot the property with a higher listing price while you, or one of your staff, will take pictures of the other properties.

You open your listings page and notice a great inconsistency. The difference in the marketing images between the higher and lower priced listings is significant. You see it, others see it as well. This bothers you, and it should.

It is true that professional images of a property will often help sell the property faster and for a higher price at closing. Something not often talked about is how professional images of a property bring more listings.

Often a seller will research real estate companies, brokers, and agents to determine with whom they will list their property. They are looking for someone that they believe will market their property in a way that will bring a faster sell. Images of current listings are the first thing they notice and will greatly influence their final decision.

But the fact remains that it’s not financially feasible to use a professional photographer for every listing. You can, however, learn how to to take better images of your listings when a professional photographer isn’t in the budget. This will allow all of your listings to have a professional consistency which will attract more listings.

This is the purpose of the Real Estate Photography Workshop. To learn how to take better images of your property listings that don’t provide a budget for a professional photographer. Normally these properties are listed for less than $100,000.
