1. It All Starts With High Quality Photography

Great marketing starts with quality photography. We take 60-70 high quality photos with a wide angle lens and flash attachment. We color balance and correct each photo in Photoshop so your home is presented in all it’s glory. These quality photos are not only used in our MLS but used throughout our marketing and also gets syndicated to many real estate searchable websites like REALTOR.com, Tulia, Zillow and others. (use arrow keys to tab through examples).

According to REALTOR® Magazine, the better the property photos, the higher the sales price. Homes with professional photographs were found, on average, to be viewed 61 percent more online than others in that price range shot with a lower-end camera. The listings that used digital SLR cameras also commanded a 47 percent higher asking price per square foot, according to the Redfin analysis. You can read more about the article here ».

Good photography is probably the most important step in the process. Our MLS allows for up to 25 photos and an unbranded virtual tour.
