One secret that Macon home sellers need to know.

One secret that Macon, GA home sellers need to know is that Professional quality listing photos have been proven to sell homes faster AND for more money !

Redfin  (a nationwide realty group) did year long research on how the
QUALITY of listing photos effected the sales of homes they marketed.
The results were so conclusive that all the homes that they list are now
professionally photographed.

Whether you are selling FSBO or through a Realtor,  using professionally created listing photos will greatly increase your chances for a QUICK and PROFITABLE sale.

Despite the results of this study (and overlooking all the benefits to themselves) a large majority of Macon, GA Realtors DO NOT have their listings professionally photographed.  Before you sign any listing contract with a Realtor, insist that they
agree to have YOUR home professionally photographed.  Yes! ; it’s that important.

Listing photos (good or bad) are the very foundation of all the marketing that is going to be done to sell your home.  Let’s look at two examples:

Believe it or not, many Realtors have taken to using their cell phone to take the photos that they will use for your listing.  On the most recent photo session that I did,  I took one photo of the room with my cell phone (below) and then, from the same camera position, created the image at the bottom.

Regrettably, this is what you can expect from most Realtors in Macon, GA

Now, using a multiple exposure technique and some time in the computer, this is the Professional quality listing photo.

This is the photo quality that will stimulate buyers to get off their couch and into your home for a showing.

Homeseller rejects realtor’s photos

Macon, GA home seller rejects “cellphone” photos
taken by realtor!

Many more home sellers in Macon, GA should do the same.

Here’s the story . . .

 I received a call last week from a former Macon realtor who now lives in Florida.  She has decided to sell her home in a well established subdivision in north Macon.  She has decided to entrust the sale of her home to an old associate who still sells real estate in Macon.  As MOST agents in this area do, the listing agent put the listing up with photos he had taken with his cellphone.  The home seller actually insisted that the listing be taken down and challenged the agent to have the home photographed by a professional photographer.  The agent replied he didn’t know of anyone so the client found my website and called me herself.

     The listing is now up again with my photos in the listing and I know they will assist in getting a quick sale for this lovely home.

     Research done within the real estate industry has proven that homes sell faster and for more money when the listing photos are done professionally.  The listing photos are the foundation for all the marketing (website listings, MLS, flyers, newspaper ads, etc.) that is going to be done to sell your home.  Home sellers:  BEFORE YOU SIGN ANY LISTING CONTRACT MAKE SURE IT INCLUDES PROFESSIONAL LISTING PHOTOS!
