Pictures - A Homebuyers Inside Look!
My daughter was sitting with me at the computer one night, looking at homes on the MLS. She and her husband are thinking about buying a new home, maybe getting something a little bigger. When we came to a home with no pictures,
I would stop to read the info - does it have a basement, square foot, bedrooms, etc. She said, 'forget it, why don't people post pictures with these homes'? Her question was valid! I had to tell her I honestly have no idea. She knows I tote my camera everywhere and am perplexed at the absence of pictures in the Indianapolis MLS.
Now I know there may be a few homes on the market, where, there is no way around it, you just can't get a good interior shot. I think at least one good shot of the front, some idea about the home should be given. I'm not even sure they have to be the best photos and you don't have to be a professional photographer (I'm not). But good photos with a digital camera are fairly easy.
Gone are the days of waiting for your pictures. I can easily take a 100 photos and delete those which did not turn out. Experience tells me the consumer just passes by the homes with no photos. Having photos definately increases the odds a buyer will stop to look at the home. If you can get them to stop for a minute, they may take time to read the info. Hey, they may even decide a personal tour is in order so they can see more.
I am a firm believer in marketing with multiple photos, Real Estate Shows and on multiple websites. You never know where the buyer may be searching when they find my clients home. One thing for sure, they will find photos, as many as I can post! When your selling your Indianapolis home, give the buyers an inside look!
