Don’t adjust your eyes, this is an actual photo attached to a listing.  I will be the first to tell you that when I first got my real estate license, I went out and bought the entire photography 101 kit, SLR camera, various lenses, tripod, flash, cases etc… for almost $2,000!  After our first two or three listings, hours of attempting to edit, change lighting and such, I came to the realization that I didn’t become a Realtor to take pictures!  When you 1200 Steuart Street #325 Baltimore MD 21230_8hire our team, you are hiring them to list, market and find a ready, able and willing buyer for your home.  In order to market your home professional photographs are a crucial component as buyers browsing homes online are searching through pictures trying to find a reason NOT too like your home!!  Yes, you heard me right, they are clicking through hundreds of pictures of homes finding ways to narrow down their search by recognizing what they don’t like and eliminating your home from their list of options!  They say you have one chance to make a first impression, so don’t chance it with a quick snapshot from your newest smartphone!

When you hire a Realtor, you are hiring them to make one of the largest, if not the largest, financial transaction of your life.  You are investing a lot 200 War Admiral Way_15of money in your home sale, make sure that the team/agent you hire is investing in getting your home sold as well.  If you ask them how photographs will be handled, and they whip out their brand new iPhone, may I suggest pleasantly excusing yourself from the conversation and finding another agent!  Full time agents take their business, their clients, and their reputation seriously, and will make sure they are partnering with the best to market your home in the best showmanship possible!!  So make sure to have the conversation with a Realtor when interviewing them to get your home sold, ask them for examples of past listings marketing materials, photos, videos and such.  This is not saying that every Realtor should go out and hire a professional photographer to shoot every listing they take.  I’m sure there are excellent agents who shoot beautiful pictures every time.  At the Compass Home Group, we leverage that component to a professional, providing us with additional time to find a buyer for your home!
