Begin With Good Real Estate Photography
I do my own Real Estate Photography and also sometimes do photography work for other Realtors®. Good Real Estate Marketing begins with good Real Estate Photography.
Real estate photography has become increasingly important with the growth of social media sharing sites like Twitter and Facebook and property search portals like Realtor. com, Trulia and Zillow. 98% of all home buyers begin their home search online. Home buyers browse for homes on the internet using mobile devices like iPhones and other smart phones.

Hello Digital Photography Goodby MLS Books. Get Over It!
The Real Estate Listing Photograph was a very lonely creature when I first began my Real Estate Career. There was only one black and white real estate photograph that lived in the MLS Books. The MLS Books were about the size of the Yellow Pages Telephone Directory.
Today our Trend MLS and other search portals can feature up to 25 color property photos. This is a brochure showing photos of a pending sale in Chesterbrook that drew numerous showings, open house visitors and offers to purchase.

I hear tell that there was a time in the life of a Realtor® when all that was needed was an MLS Book, a car, a pen and a contract to sell a property! Not Today. The Tech Savvy Realtor® of today needs Gigs and lots of ’em!
I just invested in a new Camera, a Nikon D40 SLR. It doesn’t cost as much as a house, but neither is it disposable. I try to stay cutting edge in my tech investments and avoid the”bleeding edge”.
The Nikon D40 takes great pictures right out of the box, but I like to play. My original digital camera was one of the first of Kodak DC4800’s which is an excellent camera for wide angle shots in real estate. Simple but good. Sometimes you can still find it on eBay.

Hopefully, both cameras will help to keep my listing photos off of the amusing Worst MLS Picture list. Read the rest of this entry »
