Again, this is just a guideline. I may take extra images of special or unique features or less images for spaces that I don’t think will photograph well.
Everyone has their own marketing strategies. Some prefer less or more images. In the era of zoom conferences and remote work, there is little doubt that more and more homebuyers will continue to use property photographs as their primary filtering tool throughout their home search.
Regardless of your marketing strategy, there are a few questions you should consider when deciding on a total image count.
Do you have an open or closed floor plan?
Open floor plans require less images and are more common so if the property has a closed floor plan you may need more images than suggested above.
Do you have a lot of acreage?
If the property has more than .75 of an acre I typically recommend more images in addition to aerial photos to showcase the property border lines.
How many photos are too many photos?
We can all understand and appreciate the fact that not having enough real estate images can hurt a listing but can you have too many images? Absolutely! The goal of getting professional property photos is to highlight the features and minimize the scars. Generally speaking I don’t photograph closets, pantries, hallways, attics, crawl spaces..etc
