If you’ve ever gone through the home buying process, or spent hours during quarantine scrolling through Zillow, then you know real estate photography matters. Those listings with eye-catching twilights, an easily accessible 3D tour, and video footage to capture all of the angles of a home, are the ones that sell first. What might not be as obvious, is how to shop for a real estate photographer that can provide you the experience that you need. 

In what seems like a sea full of options, here’s how you can narrow down which photographer is right for you. Ask yourself this- what are you trying to accomplish? That will tell you everything you need to know about how to choose the right real estate photographer for you. 

For example, are you trying to get sight unseen offers on a limited timeframe? You’ll need a photographer that can provide photos, virtual tour options like 3D by Matterport, and a listing video (we’d recommend a premier, with an agent feature in this case) with a quick delivery. Or maybe you’re looking for someone with a creative eye, who can help you build your brand identity through your content. You’ll need a real estate photographer who has the ability to storyboard and develop creative content, giving you attention to detail. Maybe you’re simply looking to save time and money (because who isn’t?). You’ll probably want to look for a package based on your listing’s needs- you’d save money by packaging services and booking a shoot with *some real estate photographerstakes less than one minute. 

Choosing a real estate photographer is a big decision, and you want to know that you’re working with someone that you can trust. In-house media support, scheduling and customer support, industry-leading content, next day delivery, and a team of skilled professionals with flexible availability are some of the main things that we can promise you-  and that’s just the start.
