Statistics & Dynamics
Professional Photos just do better!
Why does one property get more views over another? A lot has to do with how the property is marketed. The internet shopper is traveling at lightspeed browsing over listing after listing. They put in the data of the type of property they want and then the results page is where you have to get them, that insta-second where they glance down the page. If you’re the seller and your photos don’t stand out then you don’t get clicked on. A recent study showed that 92% of the initial reaction was based on how enticing the first photo looked in the search results when shown 25 properties at once.

Studies prove it
You can put over Google Analytics and other site analysis tools, and what they will tell you is that vivid pictures and video with something engaging in the first 3 seconds will stop them and take a closer look at what you are presenting. Think back to recent searches YOU did. It wasn’t the text in sentence 3 that got you to look more, it was a vivid photo or a video with a great cinematic effect and a catchphrase in the first few seconds.
The days of taking a photo with your camera are over. You won’t capture the angle a professional’s eye will get. You don’t know how to enhance the photos just right to get them to look 10 times better than your camera could, and these days your competitors have figured it out. Professional photography gets more views, more likes, more shares, more time-on-page, and a host of other things important to get the majority of viewers.
Things to Consider
Professional photography is available in many ways; Blended Flash Photography, Aerial, Twilight, Staged, and 360 pano. Each gives the viewer more perspective. More perspective adds value to viewers because the properties they look at online are intrinsically judged and the ones that give them that full feeling get them called to see or book.
Blended Flash Photography Definition that captivates and converts
Professional photography is part equipment, part photographers’ eye, and experience in staging. The lighting in the room, the outside light, positioning of what is in the room are just a few things that when put together give the room or venue a remarkable look that you can’t get without practice and experience.
