Photos are extremely important when creating that emotional connection to a home for potential buyers. The majority of real estate agents use the outside of the property facing the front door as the first photo.
The big problem with that is that's usually not the best photo of the home. There are usually many other features of the home that are better.
Almost all websites and apps only have the first photo of the listing up. So for a potential motivated buyer to see the rest of the photos, that person needs to be interested enough to want to spend the time to look at the rest.
If the first photo and the next few don't bring back the excitement that the seller felt in the past, the odds are that many of the best candidates to purchase the home won't ever see the best things about the home.
My sellers and I typically spend at least an hour picking out our top five. The impact this has is HUGE!
Doing all of the things above do not guarantee that the property will sell, but it will give the seller the best chance of selling the home in the shortest time for the most money.
