Do you know why photos are important to your real estate listing? It can be a pain to spend good amounts of time cleaning up counter tops and clutter from around the house to stage for photos. However, if you want to sell your home in a reasonable amount of time, it is wise to include photos in your listing and online advertisements. Here are the reasons why listing photos are so important:
1. The internet dominates the housing market. Rarely is there a buyer who searches for houses only in person without ever looking online. Therefore, it is very important to have pictures that potential buyers can view to give them a visual of the house.
2. Papilios Real Estate Photography did a study on listings that had photos and those that did not. “They found listings that utilized professional photos generated an average 139% increase in clicks compared to similar listings.”
3. It is a forced bandwagon situation. Because most other listings have pictures, it will make your listing look even worse for not having any.
4. Another study done revealed this data:
1 photo = 70 Days on the market
6 photos = 40 Days on the market
16-19 photos = 36 Days on the market
20 photos max = 32 Days on the market
And listings with fewer photos sold for less. The final price as a percentage of the Original Price also showed a direct correlation.
1 Photo = 91.2% of Original Price
6 or more = 95% of Original Price
***For best results, call an agent who will use a professional photographer or who has skills similar to one. We recommend that you check their current listings to see what kind of photographs your agent presents.***
