Photography often plays a crucial role in the real estate world. Often times, agents use their phones to take a picture of a house and upload it right then and there. However, it can be far more effective to take it a few steps further. Do you want your listings to catch the eye of a potential client?
Reach out to the experts from RE/MAX Metro’s Media Team, Krayer Zimring and Ryan Harris! While Ryan works primarily on the social media side of things, Krayer specializes in listings. He does everything from photos and to Matterport scans. RE/MAX Metro offers these services in-house for all agents!
One of our most impressive features is our in-house Matterport technology. With nine different lenses and both optical and infrared cameras, Matterport is sure to accurately showcase any home! The device builds out a dollhouse structure to virtually “walk-through” the listing online. “You literally feel like you’re inside the house,” Krayer said. The owner of RE/MAX Metro, Rick Brown, brought Matterport in to give agents something both affordable and professional. “[It’s] honestly the lowest price point I have ever heard of anyone getting a Matterport scan,” Ryan mentioned.
“You literally feel like you’re inside the house.”
When taking listing photos, our media team strives to make the home look the very best. They illustrate these houses in a natural environment whenever possible by focusing primarily on natural light. The team also utilizes different camera lenses depending on the size of the room. With us, the photographer always does his best to capture the room as accurately as possible. “That’s our goal,” Krayer said. “To make it look as good as it possibly can.” For this reason, Krayer and Ryan recommend taking the time and money to use their services for most listings.
However, some homes could actually disadvantage from detailed, high-quality photos. If the listing is on the smaller side, the photos might make the home look deceiving in size. In the same way, unflattering details may appear in the images of a “rough” listing. “Not every listing is going to be appropriate for it,” Ryan commented. Still, there are times where these recommendations might not apply. For example, a listing that has been on the market for a while may be worth boosting with professional photos.
