When it comes to building a compelling real estate website—photography is king. Over the years, Project6 has worked with a number of real estate professionals to create quality web and print collateral. Here’s what we’ve learned about the importance of using high quality photography if you are selling real estate:
Stock Photography Won’t Cut It
If you are looking to convey the image that you are a top real estate agent or broker, then you’re going to need to invest in top notch photos of your properties. It goes without saying that home buyers want to see high quality photos of actual homes for sale and not stock photography. Avoid the use of stock photos on your website; even areas like contact pages, headers, and other marketing pages. Instead, only use high quality photos of homes that you’ve represented in the past.
Get More Leads With Great Photos
Great photos of a property can convert a visitor into a lead more than any other factor. We kept this in mind at Project6 when we designed Deleon Realty’s stunning real estate website. As an award-winning top real estate firm, Deleon Realty knew how to close deals; however, their website fell behind the times. We updated their website and focused on their collection of photos featuring incredible multi-million dollar mansions. The results speak for themselves.
When You’re Online: Your Photos Are The Product
When someone visits a real estate website online, your photographs are your best chance at converting them into a lead. Meaning, when it comes to your website, your property photographs are your product. Take as much care and thought into creating beautiful photographs as you would put care into staging a home.
