Selling a House in Harrisburg PA: Say it with Pictures!

Selling a House in Harrisburg PA: Say it with Pictures! They say a picture paints a thousand words, and when it comes to selling a house you want those words to end with “sold.” It’s no secret that better-presented homes get more traffic and more buyer interest, therefore you’ll end up selling a house faster.

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, nearly 90% of all homebuyers begin shopping for homes online. Many flip through photos of the homes and send a list of those they want to see to their Agent. Any Agent that would consider selling a house with only a few photos, will learn all too soon that homes with few or no photos are often passed over simply for that reason, even if the home’s description matches a buyer’s ideal listing.

Many Agents believe that apart from staging, no other endeavor is as important as photography in marketing a property effectively, and in turn selling a house. The best photographs are most likely to come from someone who has an eye for the underlying beauty of the home’s structure and spaces. Agents who have many years of expertise are purchasing specialized equipment for lighting and perspective control. We use professional programs for post-processing of the images for use on the Web and in publications.

Let’s face it, as much as we all like to think we take great photos, there is a science behind selling a house. Through many years of selling houses, I have acquired an eye for seeing the best vantage points and lighting options and also have better equipment to make the photos bright, clear and sharp. The same holds true with taking video of your home to add to a website listing. An amateur can show what each room and yard looks like, but a professional will make the strongest elements stand out and provide a much better video narrative of the home.

A caution before selling a house! Before bringing in someone to photograph or video your home, it’s essential that it is clean and de-cluttered so the pictures entice a buyer to want to see the home in person. You don’t want clothes, pets or anything else distracting people from the photo at hand.
