Real Estate Photography Statistics

We always suggest that our clients provide us with the highest resolution photos because as it goes without saying— "You only get one chance to make a first impression!" especially when it comes to real estate photography. Poor quality images that perhaps may have been taken with a cell phone or set to a low resolution setting on a digital camera result in unattractive photos that can instantly turn away potential buyers. Thus, hiring a professional photographer is a wise choice to show a home in its most marketable condition to sell. Here are some surprising photography statistics when it comes to online photos that will show just how much of an impact good visuals make when buyers are searching for their next home online.

What Our Clients Say

“My vacant property listing sat for about 3 weeks on the market and after posting the virtual photos by Virtually Staging Properties, I saw a 50% increase in buyer traffic and we got an offer just 1 day later.  The buyer’s agent thought virtual staging was a great idea and was going to consider using it for their vacant listings.”

TARIQ THOMAS, Agent | Thomas Holding Group – Pennsylvania

“The photos were beautiful and certainly gave life to my vacant listing and within the first week after posting the photos and the listing online, we got 4 offers and a full price offer was accepted.  Thank You!”

ANNMARIE DEL FRANCO, Agent | Blackstone Properties of CT – Connecticut

“I only post virtually staged photos by VSP for my vacant listings and it is an excellent service instead of having blank rooms for buyers to view online.”

MARTHA MAY, Realtor | Koenig & Strey – Illinois

“We received 2 offers in less than a week and a half.  The property was listed with vacant photos for over 220 days on the market with no offers.  Many buyers passed on the house but after posting the virtual photos, they changed their minds and we definitely saw an increase in buyer traffic!”

TRISH BRADLEY, Agent | Rutledge Properties – Massachusettes

“After posting the virtually staged photos I saw an increase in showings and we got my vacant listing under contract in less than 14 days! “
