Your Las Vegas Home Listing Online: Is it a STUD or a DUD?

How do you want your Las Vegas home presented online when you are selling it?

With IDX reciprocity (broker listing reciprocation,) you want your Las Vegas home listing to look it’s best in front of all those local, national and yes, even international buyers.   IDX allows your home to be syndicated so home buyers can search for homes on popular sites like Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, national brand brokerages and even individual agent websites like my own web search here.  With the unique Las Vegas real estate market, some home buyers may even choose to purchase their home sight unseen.

Close to 70% of home buyers nationally find their home online!

With those statistics in mind, OBVIOUSLY the Las Vegas home seller wants their home to look better online than any of their competition in the market!  This will give the seller the competitive edge on home buyers searching & doing research online to be compelled to want to even view their home – or even make that sight unseen offer!

While I am NO photographer, I have found that wide angle lens photography can make a “ho hum home” look spectacular online!

Here are three sample photos I took with the iPhone4s, a Sony point and shoot and a Nikon wide angle lens camera.  All were taken at the same exact height and vantage point using the automatic features and NO editing other than size to make them uniform:

I was actually surprised that the iPhone photo came out so well!  My favorite is the Nikon wide angle lens camera.  Second choice would be my iPhone and third would be the Sony.  The Nikon wide angle captured a home feature that the other two cameras did not capture – which was the surround sound speaker!

Minor details like that can definitely sway a home buyer to want to see the home!  If you are a Las Vegas area homeowner and you are thinking about listing your home and would like your home presented on the internet using wide angle lens camera photos – click here for your no hassle, no obligation home listing consultation!

Again, I am not a professional photographer but my goal is to make your home present itself beautifully online!  I definitely never want one of my listings to be a part of any of those “bad MLS photos” websites!

Besides minor edits that could be done with simple things like opacity, which type of camera photo (wide angle, phone or point and shoot) is your favorite and why?

Great post and comparison on the home. I like the wide angle lens as well and it makes a huge difference. I use a Canon 60D with a wide angle lens also.
