My Photos Helped Sell a Home in 8 Days After It Was on the Market for 8 Months

See this house? It languished on the Orlando, Florida, market for 224 days. It’s no wonder; with a photo like that who would want to come see it? A new realtor took over — one who understands the importance of professional photography for his listings.

I was hired to photograph the home on February 28 and delivered the images the next day. On March 10 he told me a buyer had made an offer. To put it another way, after almost 8 months on the market, the home was under contract within 8 days after I took new photos.

Now I can’t say the photos alone sold the home. Credit must be given to the realtor. But I have no doubt the photos helped. Take a look at some before and afters:

Isn’t it clear how having good images can attract more potential buyers? I am always amazed at how most realtors refuse to pay for professional photos.
