no offense, guys, but it isnt the camera/lens/photograph​er that sells the real estate. its the agent that sells the real estate. its a people business, not a camera business. better shots help, but they dont get the credit for the autograph on the paperwork. sorry.

Better shots get better paychecks. That's what all the hoopla is about.

super old thread, but since someone else revived it, I wanted to comment on this.

Today, people do the initial legwork on the web. People narrow down the shopping list to a few houses to see in person based solely on what they can find online in the MLS. Good pictures means people want to look at your house. The more people that walk through the door, the faster you get offers. Even if you use a real estate to find the houses for you, they are going to want to show houses that they know won't be disappointing. Pictures are very important for the buyer's realtor, too.

Heck, you can't even sell a lens on POTN without a decent picture!

As an agent, I fully agree with you.

95% of our enquiries come from the website (external link), and we have to make the best possible effort with images.

Correction in PP affects image quality/resolution. As long as you just want to display on a computer screen, then that is fine, but as soon as you want to print (large) forget it.

To use a TS-e to it's full, you'll probably also need a FF camera, as there is nothing wider than 17mm.

I'm a part time real estate photographer. Unfortunately the vast majority of sellers, including agents, do not realize the potential and the power of good interior photos. Most people just don't want to spend the money. I charge anywhere between $100 and $150 for a set of 20 photos, and even people listing half a million dollar homes are reluctant to pay that.

Oh, and proper lighting is at least as important as the camera/lens...

EDIT: by the way I use a 7D + Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 plus 4 flash units

Anyway, here are a few shots from my portfolio:

Sigma 8-16 typically at the 10-14mm range though. 8mm is easily correctable is Bridge.
The far right picture frame in #2 kinda bugged me but im thinking could also be easily corrected.

:D Most agents just don't have a clue about how important images are.

I have often sold properties with emailed images/communications alone, without the buyer even viewing the property....:cool: and has paid for my kit many times over.

With crap photos, it would not be possible...

Make sure your verticals are vertical :) I usually shoot kneeling down and raise the camera/lens to a perfectly horizontal level. I do have the level feature in my 7D to help but I don't do that. I just use the viewfinder grid and line up door/window frames, closets, etc to be vertical. It only takes a little bit of experimenting but it makes a huge difference.

I know your photos were probably just quick snapshots and not shots to go into a magazine but I thought I'd share my thoughts :)
