Ready. Set. Say “Sale!”

When selling your home, it’s worth it to bring in the professionals. Most potential buyers’ first impression of your house will be on an online listing site. With countless listings competing for attention, it’s important to stand out with above-average real estate photography and videography. 

At McGarr Realty, we hire professional photographers and videographers so we can showcase your home at its best. This service enables our clients to stay competitive in the Niagara real estate market. In addition to helping to sell homes faster, professional photography provides a better experience for buyers and sellers alike.

Let’s explore some of the reasons why professional photography is a game-changer for selling your home.

Hiring Professionals

While cell phone cameras have come a long way, they are no replacement for hiring an experienced photographer with professional camera equipment. Real estate photography is not simply about taking pictures of rooms -- it’s about knowing how to capture the right style photos to entice potential buyers to book a viewing or make an offer.

Professional real estate photographers and videographers consider several elements when trying to achieve this outcome for home sellers. They utilize the best times of the day for capturing the proper lighting to make rooms look bright and inviting. They also determine the best angles of each room and work with the real estate agents to adjust staging elements to enhance the layouts for images.

Benefits of Professional Real Estate Photography

When selling your home, opting for professional photography and videography is more than worth your time and setup. Here’s why:

  • Sells your home faster: Listings with high-quality photos sell 32% quicker than those with amateur photos. They are more visually appealing and garner higher interest from online viewers.
  • Increases the chances of a higher selling price: Photographers curate a collection of photos that show the best features of your home. This gives a strong impression to potential buyers who will consider your home more valuable as a result.
  • Attracts a wider variety of buyers: Marketing is an essential part of the selling process and digital advertising with professional photos enables REALTORS® to market your home to as many buyers as possible, from all around the world.
  • Provides better credibility: Buyers appreciate when they can get a close look at your home. Real estate videography is particularly beneficial for showing viewers the layout and flow of your space while minimizing concerns that some parts of the home are being hidden.

If you plan to list your home, our REALTORS® are ready to give you the full-service experience! From professional real estate photography to our competitive marketing strategies, McGarr Realty will help you achieve your selling goals.
