This is even more true when it comes to selling your Smith Mountain Lake home. And let’s face it, you want those words to end with a definitive “sold.”

Smith Mountain Lake homes garner more traffic and buyer interest when presented effectively—which means they sell faster. That’s why it is essential that you showcase your home through images in the best way possible.

According to the National Association of REALTORS,® nearly 90% of all homebuyers begin shopping for homes online. They click through photos and send a list of those of interest to their real estate agent. In fact, homes with few or no photos are often skipped 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 marketing investment is as important as professional photography in marketing a property. So to generate more buyer interest, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of professional real estate photographers. As much as we like to think we take great photos, a professional has an eye for seeing the best composition and lighting, plus better equipment to make the photos bright, clear and sharp.
