Attention home sellers! Attention home sellers!

This just out, homes on the market with profesional photos sell for more than homes with amature photos.

According to Redfin Corp, the Seattle-based online brokerage, listings with better quality photos deliver higher asking prices. Just take a look at the graph on the upper-left.

“At the closing table, listings with nicer photos gain anywhere between $934 and $116,076–as measured by the difference between asking and final price–over listings using photos from point-and-click cameras”, says the Wall Street Journal.

Check out the Redfin’s comparable photos below. Do you think it makes a difference?


The price of a DSLAR camera is somewhere between $500 and $1,500, and the price of a photographer is between $100 and $500…. Is it worth the investment in a camera or a photographer??

What about in the land-development industry? We have all seen hundreds of condo and home renderings, but do the great ones stick out? I think so.

Aspen Ridge Homes’s rendering of Studio on Richmond got phenominal reviews and we are still getting people talking about it today. Check it below.


Not so in to the dramatic? Just yesterday we released the rendering for Lifetime Group’s The Yorkville Residence, which also received amazing reviews.

Whether in the resale market, or the new home market, it appears that nice images do make a difference to the purchaser. We would love to hear your thoughts.
