We recently had a brand new agent join our team. Â In Mark's previous life he was a professional photographer. Â Part of the deal of him joining the team was that he would take all the pictures of our listings. Â He has a much better camera than we have, and (as I quickly learned) a much better eye for pictures and details. Â
Last week Mark and I were looking through the new listings on the Fort Wayne MLS. Â There was one listing that really caught my eye because of the stunning pictures. Â The listing had most of the normal pictures, like this one: Â
And this one:
And then I saw one like this:Â
I thought it looked cool, but might be a little too "artsy" for a real estate listing. Â Then I looked through some of his other listings and saw more of the same. Â Then I really started to like it! Â Then I had Mark start taking shots like these for our listings. Â These three are actually from OUR listing. Â
My question is to other Realtors reading this and for anybody considering selling your home in the Fort Wayne area:
Do you think pictures like the third one here help or hurt the real estate listing? Â Does a picture like this detract from the overall message we are trying to send to the general public? Â Does it distract buyers from the listing? Â I would love to hear your throughts! Â
Here are my thoughts: Â I love pictures like this one. Â In the Fort Wayne MLS we are allowed to post up to 30 pictures per listing. Â I say that at least one or two should be this type of picture. Â Now, if there were only 15 pictures allowed it might be a different story. Â My two cents. Â
Â Whether you are buying, selling, downsizing, or relocating to Fort Wayne...
