Why Pictures are important in a listing

NAR and major sites all do studies of how long people look at a listing. The time is in seconds but if you have pictures , and I mean good pictures of your listing and a lot of them folks will linger longer.

Today I had rather an interesting experience. I was showing a home in Big Canoe to some folks. This was their first time in Big Canoe. As we were in the house the wife said, " I have been in this home before ! I recognize this art work" Now I am thinking, they said they had never been in Big Canoe before what gives? The husband said you have been in this home virtually.

The wife had seen it on line and the quality of the pictures were good enough for her to recognize the interior. This created a feeling of familiarity and ease. It made the showing go very well

We at All Mountain Realty do at least 25 pictures( the max for our MLS) as well as use virtual tours and a professional photographer. Why? Because we want folks to know our properties and see them. Pictures may be low tech but they are critical to your listings.
