The Value of Professional Property Photography

Almost 90% of prospective home buyers use the internet as a resource whilst doing their search for a new home. Home buyers are able to proactively find properties on their own using websites such as Rightmove. Now, more than ever before, professional property photography is absolutely crucial. Results pages showing properties as a list need engaging photography to grab the eye of a buyer.

Estate Agents need photography that REALLY stands out and appeals to the ultimate decision makers, the home buyers. The role of the professional property photographer is to make those that are looking at pages of search results stop in their tracks and to get the potential buyer to click through and view more of the property.

The home buying process starts with the click of a mouse and can result in the largest purchase of a lifetime. The first, primary exterior photo is absolutely critical to the sale of a home. When using property search

engine websites, the buyer usually narrows the search criteria with elements such as price, location, number of rooms and lot size, so their next click action is based on photography. After clicking on a specific listing, the following interior and additional exterior photographs need to validate the initial click through decision and motivate the viewer to schedule a visit with the estate agent.

Property photographers specialise in capturing and editing photographs that provide warm lighting and aesthetically pleasing angles, this results in increased click through rates and lots more interest in viewing the home.

In fact, 61% more clicks occur on houses captured by a property photographer, using a DSLR camera versus a point-and-shoot as reported by Redfin.

The industry has quickly progressed online, and with that change, home listings are at the fingertips of buyers.  The importance of property photography is clear and it continues to gain value with the digital evolution of the market.
