Questions and Answers

 

Q - Are good photos really that important to a real estate listing?

A - Research has shown that 92% of home buyers begin their search on-line.  That means the photos an agent posts on the MLS are, in fact, "The First Showing."  So it's vital that those images show the home in it's best light. Listings that utilize professional photography sell on average 23 days faster than listing with amateur images.

 

Q - Why do I need a photographer for my listings?  I have an iPhone.

A - Smart phones are great for selfies and party shots but it's not the right equipment to photograph architecture.  We utilize high-quality cameras, special wide-angle lenses and expensive post-production software to capture your clients property.  The photos you post should be amazing, and you're never going to get amazing photos with a smart phone.

 

Q - So how much is this going to cost me?

A - Our pricing is extremely competitive.  Most projects under 4000 sqft are at the $250 price point.  There may be travel expenses incurred and there is an additional fee for things like drone photos or full-motion video.  

 

Q - Will you build a virtual tour for my listing?

A - Every real estate photo project we produce includes both branded and unbranded virtual tours at no extra charge. We customize them to fit your branding and they include music, google map integration, local school info and printable fliers.  Here's an example of one of our virtual tours.  

 

Q - Do you have a drone?

A - Yes!  We are fully licensed with the FAA's sUAS 107 certificate.  We also carry up to $5 million in liability insurance.  We use our registered drone for both still photos and video.  Check out our Video Gallery for an example of our drone video work.  And remember to always make sure any drone pilot you hire is FAA licensed.  It not you can be subject, as the hiring agent, to an $11,000 fine from the FAA.

 

Q - What do you charge for full-motion video walk-throughs?

A - Our full-motion video tours start at $300.  That includes drone footage, video editing and graphics.

 

Q - How fast can I get the photos?  My client is in a hurry to get the listing active.

A - We guarantee photo turn-around by first of business the next day.  However 95% of our projects are delivered same day.  If we schedule a shoot at 10am, in most cases you'll have your photos and virtual tour later that afternoon.

 

Q - You don't charge extra for same day delivery?

A - No!  No one should.

 

Q - Do you do weddings?

A - We have in the past, but generally we like to refer clients to a photographer who specializes in weddings.

 

Q - What about engagement photos?

A - Yes we do those!  Check out our "People" gallery for portrait and engagement examples.

 

Q - Has a property ever sold purely from your photos?

A - Yes!  We've had properties sell sight unseen, at full price, to over-sees buyers who never stepped foot in the house.  They saw our photos and signed on the dotted line!  Try that with a smart phone.
