Post 3: If you're trying to sell something, do yourself a favor and hire a photographer
Devan and I have started looking at houses to get a general idea of what we can afford. More than a few times, a posting has almost been painful to look at. If you're trying to sell a house, or anything for that matter, do yourself a favor and hire a photographer.
When I see a really bad photo, I can usually tell what went wrong and what needs to be changed. Sometimes though, I don't always analyze a photo, and I find myself thinking, "wow, this house looks terrible." The chances of me sticking around and looking at that listing is pretty much 0%. Sometimes I'll look at the photos for a little longer and try to figure out what went wrong; it's usually on camera flash or too slow of a shutter speed. I don't know for sure what someone who doesn't know much about photography will think, but I can't help but assume they'll think the house looks awful, and go on to the next one.
The house might sell eventually, but do yourself a favor and hire someone to take the photos if you can't do it yourself. This doesn't only apply to houses, either. If you're trying to sell anything, it'll be much easier to sell if you can provide a decent photo.
