Professional Pictures Are a Must When Selling Your Home Says Kim Soper, Realtor in Lexington KY
Hi, I'm Kim Soper, I'm a Realtor in beautiful Lexington, Kentucky, and I wanted to do a quick video and I wanted to touch base on professional photography and why that is so important in real estate. A prime example is the property that I just got back from showing. It was an older home from the 1970s. And it did not have professional photos online. Initially, my buyer and I thought that we will just bypass this property because honestly it just didn't show good online. It didn't captivate our attention and it certainly didn't make us want to go see it, but we thought we'd give it a chance and when we got there
We were so surprised! It was so much better than the photos and we really liked it. And that goes back to why that honestly is my pet peeve in real estate. It doesn't matter what the price point is. If it's 20,000 or if it's $4 million dollars, every seller and every property deserves to have professional photography and full professional representation. I always tell my sellers literally how important it is this day and age, because so many people are looking at homes online and they just swipe through the photos. And if it doesn't look good, you may never even get that initial showing from them. And that property today was a prime example of how we fell in love, once we got there and had that house had photos, we may have even loved it before we even got there. So professional photos are near and dear to my heart.
You guys know work with a lot of older couples, maybe someone's downsizing. Maybe it's an elderly person who just lost her spouse and many think, well, why do they even need professional photos? They might not even use the internet or the computer, but literally I want them to see how beautiful their home is. And so even if they don't use the computer, you know, don't shortchange them as a seller. They deserve those photos too. And I always tell them, I'm going to print everything out, all the photos, all the marketing. So you can see exactly what your house looks like to the buyers and honestly how beautiful your house looks. And that's something that I want them to have, those mementos and those copies of the photos to take with them and maybe put them in a scrapbook, but something to remember the home by. And professional photos really help a seller generate the most money possible for the property. So make sure if you're selling, you do have professional photos. It's so crucial to really showcase your home in the best light and sellers deserve that, everyone does.
