The buyer and seller market has gone to the internet and shifted to an online platform compared to the good old days of face to face encounters. The real estate market is no lagger in this trend as more and more listings are now done through websites or social media. It is through photos that potential buyers look at a home’s offerings and contact the real estate agent from there, making it a very competitive way to sell. To sustain the movement of real estate properties, the photos must be available just as fast so all listings can be put up for sale. This is where the competition among photographers tighten up.
Processing photos after a long day at the property site comes automatic without question. The real estate company is always excited to see how the photos have turned out as they will be using these in their listings. There is an expectation of speed and quality that comes with a reasonable price to compensate for the effort of taking the photos as well as editing them. Real estate image enhancement has different business models depending on how it is sourced.
As a professional real estate photographer, there are several considerations when thinking of doing the photography and editing yourself rather than constantly outsourcing it. There is an element of skill which is traded off with the convenience of outsourcing photography to professionals with real estate photo enhancement. There is also a cost difference which can make or break turning up a large profit. Finally, the ability to find and maintain a partner photographer with an editing service requires trust to keep the service steady but should be flexible enough to adjust to smaller or bigger requirements.
