As more and more REALTORS® utilize professional photography for their listings, the need for agents to actually go out to take their own property photos is decreasing. However, few agents can justify hiring a professional for every single one of their listings, which means the average REALTOR® still needs to be able to take attractive, high-quality photos. And since most of today's buyers are looking online, where they are inundated with professional property photos shot with high-end equipment, the standard smartphone pictures are not going to cut it anymore.
Want to make sure your listing photos and videos can stand up to — or event stand out from — the competition and make an impression on potential buyers without having to invest in expensive camera equipment or hire a professional? A simple wide angle lens attachment for your smartphone might be the perfect solution. Here are two options that offer both quality and value. Both are lightweight and easy to carry with you, and will dramatically improve the quality of your photos.
