I like taking photographs and have been doing so for decades. I have used many types and brands of cameras over the years and am currently using three different cameras of the same brand, for different applications. I have always done my own photography for my publishing endeavors as well as in my real estate business. Long ago, I had my own darkroom where I would spend hours developing and printing B/W images. I miss certain aspects of those hands-on days but can really appreciate the ease and versatility of digital photography.
Just recently I have begun to handle some photographic projects for other agents. Some agents are just too busy to properly photograph their own listings and others realize that it may not be one of their strong points. Good photography is essential in presenting your listings to the public, so take the time to do it right. The weather cooperated with me on this day and that's not always the case, but I think the colors are dramatic and will draw some attention.
As you peruse the listings on your MLS what kind of pictures do you encounter. Would these catch your eye?
