Professional photography for your listings should not be an afterthought. Many agents are using their iPhone to take pictures for their listings. Without the proper equipment and know-how, capturing the very best aspects of any property is virtually impossible.

Agents who outsource photography earn twice as much commission as those who do not. Only 35% of agents use professional photographers (yeah, let that sink in...)
