During this 'buyers market', when homes are selling fast and often way over the listing price, one can feel that professional photography is a waste of money. I have seen photos taken with smartphones, are out of focus, dark, and are not staged in a professional manner.
While you might be saving a few dollars, what these images say about you as a real estate agent, and more importantly, about your brand, hiring a professional photographer is one of the least expensive ways to market 'you' and increase your opportunity for future business. It's the gift that keeps on giving back.
Besides, your client deserves more.
And so do you.
