Your mother was right - First impressions...matter!
With all the expenditures involved in selling your home you might ask yourself 'Why should I add to that total by paying a professional to photograph it?' Why? Simply put - our moms were right (shhhh, don't tell them)...first impressions DO matter. Skeptical? I can understand that. Do me a favor and pull up a few listings...because sometimes it requires seeing to believe. Take a moment to compare the photos. Which of them catch your eye leading you to the listing. On the flip side which ones do you pass over simply because the photos weren't enough to spark your interest? Sure, we all have great cell phones ready at our fingertips and they take ok photos. When all is said and done which would you prefer, an 'ok' offer on your home or your asking price? So maybe the real question is, what value do you place on getting what your home is worth?
Statistics don't lie:
Simply put, it wouldn't cross your mind to use a 'selfie' in lieu of a professional headshot for that dream job. Don't cut corners with the investment of your home. Hire a professional.
That all being said, let's talk...because first impressions really do matter.
