Is it hard for real esteste agents to find someone to take pictures of the house they are trying to sell?

Just when I get drawn in I find out there are either not many pictures or no pictures. If someone is looking because they are relocating from another state it is very disappointing.

Hi Beth,

Even I, as an agent, get frustrated at the type and lack of pictures some agents attach to their listings. There are cases where the owner or tenant does not want inside pictures but a good agent will work around this. For out of state clients, I preview homes and take pictures and send them to the client so when they come into town to look, they know what they are looking at.

Happy to help you if you do not have an agent already.

Absolutely not Difficult to find a good photographer. As Dominik stated, we are bound by the restrictions our clients put in front of us, and some can be more restrictive in our marketing efforts. With that said, I believe a lot of what you are seeing is a result of the amount of effort involved from the listing agents. HAR requires at minimum 6 photos or we face fines, and will allow up to 32. Personally, I feel the quality of the photos can make a huge difference, as most buyers see the homes online first. Because I feel so strongly that a first impression is imperative, I include professional photography as a standard in all (Non investment or distressed) listings. I have a go too photographer as well as several back ups if needed. While we can't control what is listed by other agents, a face time or screen share walk through can also be done by the Agent for clients unable to be present at the showing.

Hi Beth,

There are many property or real estate photographers to choose from. It may take time for an agent to find one and build a really good rapport with however, it is not hard to initially find a photographer to start at the beginning with and get some really good photos to market a home properly. I hope this answered your questions well enough. Have a great day!

As you have seen by the answers previously - no it is not hard to find a professional photographer to take photos on listings. I provide this service to all my selling clients at no charge. My pet peeve is poor quality listing photos. On the flip side, I have been able to secure homes for my clients in this competitive market because the lack or quality of photos has kept many buyers away. If you are personally moving from out of state to Houston, I would encourage you to engage with a local Realtor that specializes in the area of town you are looking. Houston is HUGE and it is best to connect with someone who knows the area. They can access prior listings to a home to at least get a general idea if the property is something you are looking for - especially if the descriptions seems to align with your wants/needs in a home. I know from personal experience I have done many FaceTime tours with out of state/out of country clients to help them virtually tour a home and make a decision. You can use the "find a real estate agent" tool in the agents drop down. Search for agents who have a client experience rating to further assist you. If you are looking in Clear Lake, Friendswood, League City or further south, feel free to connect with me. Best of luck and may sellers start demanding quality photos from their agents to assist buyers like yourself!

I have created my own walk through video for clients, this has helped them see the property without being here. I prefer this way because they can go back to the video and look at it as many times as they want, with facetime they see it that
one time but with a video they can share it and keep it! Hope this helps!
