3 Reasons You Need Professional Photography Services When Selling Your Home

In today's crowded online world, getting your home noticed and making a lasting impression on potential buyers is essential to getting top dollar for it. One of the most effective ways to do this is to showcase your property using professional photography services. When you list your property with The Don Petrasek Team, we offer high-quality photography options that will help your home stand out. From stunning still shots to captivating drone imagery and immersive Matterport tours for larger homes with more complicated floor plans, we've got every situation covered.  Here are 3 reasons why its crucial to use a professional photographer when selling your home:

1. Professional Still Shots

The first step in capturing the essence of your property is through professional still shots. We provide you with step by step guidance on how to prepare your home.  Our team of experienced photographers knows how to make your property shine in the best light. They are skilled in showcasing your home's most appealing features, capturing its true essence, and ensuring that it makes a memorable first impression. In addition, a member of The Don Petrasek Team is present at every shoot to assure that we get all the shots we need to execute our marketing plan for your home. From the entryway to the backyard, every room and corner will be highlighted in the best possible way.

3 Reasons Still Shots are Important:

  • First Impressions: The initial photo of your property is often the first thing potential buyers see, so it needs to be exceptional to get them to continue to click thru.
  • Highlighting Features: Still shots allow for careful framing and lighting, emphasizing your home's unique features.
  • Consistency: Consistent, high-quality images across all of our listings create a professional and trustworthy image that makes buyers more comfortable.


2. Aerial Drone Shots

In today's digital age, drone photography has become an invaluable tool for showcasing properties. When you list with us, we’ll often  include stunning aerial drone shots of your property. These shots offer a unique perspective, providing potential buyers with a bird's-eye view of your home, its surroundings, and any nearby amenities.




3 Reasons Why Aerial Drone Shots are Essential:

  • Unparalleled Views: Aerial shots capture your property's full landscape, showing off the size and surroundings including any unique features in your yard.
  • Location Emphasis: They allow you to highlight proximity to key points of interest such as parks, schools, and shopping areas.
  • Visual Appeal: Aerial shots add a captivating dimension to your listing, making it more enticing to prospective buyers.


3. Matterport 3D Tours for Larger Homes

For larger properties with more complicated floor plans, we use Matterport 3D tours – an immersive experience that takes virtual property viewing to the next level. With a Matterport tour, potential buyers can virtually "walk" through your home from the comfort of their own computer or mobile device. These tours provide a detailed, interactive experience that allows viewers to explore every room and space as if they were physically present.

3 Reasons Why Matterport Tours are a Game-Changer:

  • Realistic Experience: Buyers can explore the property as if they were there in person, giving them a true sense of the space.
  • Detailed Insights: Matterport tours provide in-depth views of every room including measurements, showcasing details that still shots may miss.
  • Increased Engagement: Listings with Matterport tours tend to generate more interest and leads.
