Do you need photos of a home you’re selling in Northern Virginia, Washington DC or Maryland?

Pricing Information

There were these two families selling their home in one of the suburbs just out from Arlington. They were both great homes, almost identical, and well priced at about $550,000.

One of the families sold their place in just 12 days, and a few weeks later they had already moved into their new home. They got $562,000 after a lot of competition amongst buyers, and found the whole process to be a lot quicker, and a lot less painful, than they expected.

The other family weren’t so successful. It took them 9 weeks to sell their home, and even then they only managed one offer for $520,000 which they accepted after some pressure from their agent.

What made the difference? The photographs.

One family had a real estate agent who brought in an experienced real estate photography company to prepare and photograph their home; the other family had a cheap real estate agent who took the photos with their phone.

So while one family had a home that looked like it was worth a lot more than the asking price, and had buyers queuing up to make an offer, the other home had very little interest. The difference was in the presentation, and it’s presentation that sells homes.

The right price plays a key role, but buyers look at the price and the photos together, and if they don’t match up they’re not going to call the agent to take a look.

Unless they’re a bargain hunter who is looking for something cheap, and that’s not the kind of buyer anyone wants. 

Every seller wants a top price for their home, and the photos have a big role to play in bringing the right sort of buyers through the door.

In other words, if the home looks classy then you’re going to attract classy buyers, the type who are willing and able to pay you the best possible price for your place.

And likewise, if you have photos that have been rushed, where the lighting isn’t spot on, where the kitchen is messy and the whole place looks like it would belong in the bargain bin at the local store, then you’re going to attract buyers who want to low-ball you.

If you want the right buyers for your home, Northern Virginia Real Estate Photography is here to help.

More buyers

So imagine if a buyer is looking at two homes that are priced the same. One looks average at best, and the other has clear, stunning images, with beautifully lit interiors and saturated, colourful exteriors. Given that the potential buyer only has a set of images to look at, which photos will entice that buyer to visit the property or make an enquiry?

The one with the better images, of course … and that’s where we come in. 🙂
