If you’re planning to sell your house, you know that photos are one of the most important tools you have to attract potential buyers. But did you know that the time of day you take photos can make a big difference in how your house looks in those photos?

The best time to take photos of your house is during the “golden hour,” which is the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset. During this time, the light is soft and warm, which can make your house look more inviting and attractive.

If you take photos during the middle of the day, when the sun is high in the sky, the light can be harsh and unflattering. Shadows can be too dark and highlights can be too bright, which can make your house look less attractive.

Of course, the best time to take photos of your house will depend on the orientation of your house and the direction it faces. If your house faces east, for example, you might want to take photos in the morning, when the light is coming from the east. If your house faces west, you might want to take photos in the evening, when the light is coming from the west.

In general, though, the “golden hour” is the best time to take photos of your house. If you’re not sure when that is, you can check online for the sunrise and sunset times in your area.

By taking photos of your house during the “golden hour,” you can make your house look more attractive and inviting to potential buyers. If you’re looking for a professional real estate photographer who can help you take the best possible photos of your house, look no further than Mario Alfredo Photography.

Drones have been used for a long time in different industries. If you are in the real estate sector, you have no doubt heard about real estate photography with drones. But what are the real benefits for capturing the attention of clients? Read on to find out more.

Advantages of aerial photography with drones

Drone photography is the art of taking high-quality photos and videos using unmanned aerial vehicles, or as they are more popularly known, drones.

Drones allow professional real estate photographers and videographers to capture certain angles and views that would otherwise be limited by standard cameras.

Photographers can shoot up to 400 feet above ground level to produce compelling aerial shots of homes, the local landscape, charming town centers, landmarks and expanses of lush golf courses, just to name a few.

This new medium creates a greater sense of location and culture that buyers love. In addition to aerial photography, 360º panoramic photos are also possible, allowing us to offer clients a complete view of the property.

On the other hand, it is worth noting that thanks to aerial photography, clients can see the neighborhood and surroundings before even visiting the house in person. We must keep in mind that privacy and security are two very important concepts for our potential buyers. Especially for those who are buying a luxury home with a high price tag.

As consumers become more self-informed, they expect more information and useful, high quality visuals for decision making. Hence the growing popularity of drone photography in real estate.

In fact, according to Multiple Listing Service (MIS) statistics published by Real Estate Magazine, properties with accompanying aerial images are 68% more likely to sell than properties without aerial marketing, another reason agents are enhancing their marketing with drone real estate photography.

Real estate buyers want to feel a real connection to properties when they view visual content. To grab the attention of prospective buyers, start investing in quality drone real estate photography to produce the epic content you need to sell your properties quickly.

At Mario Alfredo Photography, we can help you because

  • We fly drones professionally

In the real estate sales industry, the visual aspect has always been one of the most important. If we were to make a list of factors of importance, perhaps we would have to place it just behind the so-called "customer service". Visual forms offer a wide spectrum, from the image of a real estate agent to the overall appearance of an agency. In between, we have countless points where "the visual" occupies the most varied degrees of hierarchy. What place does real estate photography occupy in the services you offer to the client?

When a client looks at your real estate portfolio, the first thing he sees is the photo. After that, they look at the area, number of rooms, etc. Something generic or low quality does not attract clients or generate sales.

When a person is looking for a house, they look at many options. And thanks to the internet and a real estate portal, he will do it faster. In the end, all the houses he has seen will look the same and he will not remember most of them.

The first 3 seconds of seeing your property, the element that captures his interest is... the featured photo. Everything else looks the same as what other real estate agencies show. Therefore, it is very important that you show the best picture of each house you sell.

The client imagines living in that property even before they know whether or not it's right for them to buy it. For this reason, the photographs of a property are important to capture their attention. Before taking the photos, make sure that everything is presentable.

Good quality photography generates emotion and a feeling of trust between the client and the real estate broker. In addition, it allows the brokerage to differentiate itself from the competition, attracting more clients and increasing sales.
