Why professional photography is essential

The most critical part of a listing for buyers is access to high-quality photos. Without good photographs, most people will keep scrolling and not even notice your property. According to the National Association of Realtors®, 96% of all buyers used the internet to search for a new home, and an astounding 51% of buyers found their home on the internet compared to only 4% of buyers that found their dream home from a yard sign. That means many people are looking at the photos, so they need to be first-rate.

As the old adage goes, "First impressions are everything!" A professional photographer can ensure buyers see a clean, sharp image every time. Gone are the days of a real estate agent clicking a few photos on their smartphone for a listing.

In today's competitive, high-end luxury market, images must be perfect. There also needs to be plenty of photos that showcase each room in the house, including the exterior and any notable features. However, there is a fine line between too much and too little, so a listing needs enough images to entice a buyer but not too many to frustrate them.

A professional photographer can change a cloudy sky blue, delete unwanted images from a background, and ensure proper lighting techniques are used to get the perfect shot. Perfectly staged photos are worth their weight in gold and will help make the selling process faster and easier.

Services a professional photographer can provide to make a real estate listing stand out

In addition to high-quality still photos, a professional photographer can also provide the following services to enhance the real estate listing:
  • Aerial photos and video.
  • Interactive floor plans.
  • Interior walkthrough videos.
  • 3D home tours.
  • Virtual home tours.

The significance of providing a detailed description of your Oak Hill, Tenn., luxury estate

A detailed property description provides prospective buyers with the information they need to determine if they want to learn more about a home. If it is vague and missing pertinent data, the buyer could be easily frustrated and move on to look at other properties. In today's digital world, people want detailed information at their immediate disposal without waiting for clarification or wasting time making phone calls.

The information every good real estate description must contain

A good property description must have a compelling narrative and include the following components:
  • Highlights desirable features of the home.
  • Points out anything unique about the property, such as having an ocean view, being close to downtown, having a waterfront, and being close to historical features.
  • Discusses noteworthy extras (fireplace, solar panels, security system, pool, deck, basement, garage, guest house, etc.).
  • Summarizes any recent renovations or upgrades to the property.
  • Lists the total square footage of the home and the dimensions of each room.
  • Lists the lot size of the property.
  • Details any notable brands (flooring, appliances, window treatments, etc.).
  • Mentions any designers involved with the construction of the home.
  • Includes the asking price and MLS® identification number.

It is imperative to have a property description that is grammatically correct without any spelling errors. Some buyers will forgo scheduling a viewing of a property if the description in the listing is inaccurate or hard to read.
