This is a tale of two homes; or, more specifically, the same home looked at in two different lights.
I’ve written about how great real estate photography can make the difference in the way a home is presented when it’s for sale – I firmly believe it’s a crucial component to the process of selling your home. In fact, starting in 2009 I was the first real estate agent in the New River Valley to use a professional photographer on all of my listings, and Nest Realty believes so much in professional real estate photography that we use it on every home we list – including foreclosures.
Sean Shannon and I have talked for years about doing a “With v. Without” series of photos, showing how a home looks both with and without professional photography, but we’ve never gotten around to it. Yesterday, a house came back on the market (listed with Coldwell Banker Townside) that highlights just what this looks like. The house – previously listed with photos presumably taken by the homeowner or agent – looks dark inside, but in reality it’s really a beautiful, light-filled home … which Sean’s photos captured. Here are some photos, of both the interior and exterior …
Professional real estate photos matter. Whether we ever work together or not – and I’d certainly welcome the opportunity to talk – insist that your listing agent present your home in the best possible light.
