Real Estate Photography Service
SmartReal.com is a Real Estate Photography Service founded by some of the same folks who started Apartments.com, Cars.com, and other similar businesses. SmartReal.com provides high quality and affordable turn-key real estate photography, aerial drone photography, virtual tours, floor plans and 3D Rendering (Matterport) services to local in-market realtors. Our goal is to bring real estate photography services to our realtor partners that enables them to quickly and professionally market their properties and establish their unique brands, reach local home buyers and sellers who are looking right now, and to service their clients with minimal effort.
Real Estate Photography – Pay If/When The Property Sells
One interesting difference in Smartreal.com when compared to other Real Estate Photography Services is the real estate agent pays if/when the property sells. If the property does not sell, or the listing agreement expires, the real estate agent is not charged.
Realtors Need High Quality, Ontime, Affordable Real Estate Photography
SmartReal.com Real Estate Photography’s starting point is CKSCA (pronounced kisska). We hire real estate photographers that are Curious, Kind, Smart, Constructive, and Accountable.
SmartReal.com also requires background checks for our real estate photographers, great real estate photography skills, and an FAA drone license.
The home selling process can be stressful for homeowners. We like what we do and we’re here to help people through the real estate photography process. We want to take as much stress out of real estate photography as possible for the homeowner and real estate agent by doing a great job for them.
BIG THING: Don’t be afraid to reschedule if the weather is threatening or you need more time to prep the home. Please try to give us 24 hours notice, but even 3 hours notice is fine.
Interior Real Estate Photography – What To Expect
Generally, we’ll photograph the interior of the property first; the real estate photography of the interior of a 2,000 sq. ft. property will last +/- 45-75 minutes.
This enables us to “get out of the homeowner’s way” as quickly as possible.
When your real estate photographer arrives, s/he will walk the home with the homeowner and develop a “plan.”
Generally, we “shoot” 1. Photos; 2. Virtual Tour; and 3. a 3D Rendering of the interior of properties.
We don’t want the homeowner and family sitting outside in the heat, cold or inclement weather. The real estate photographer & homeowner will choose one room to “get out of the way first” which will give the homeowner a comfortable place to sit and relax, perhaps the family room or kitchen.
Interior Real Estate Photography – Homeowner To-Do List
A gentle and polite reminder, many of our real estate photographers are senior citizens – think of your mom, dad, grandmother, or grandfather – real estate photography is a great and enjoyable job for them – but they are not movers and can’t clean or move things in the house or outside the property.
Declutter, declutter, declutter as much as you can. Sometimes, there is only so much you can do when you have an active and young family – after all you are living in the home – but less is more wherever and whenever you can do it!
One strategy in real estate photography is to temporarily move as much “stuff” as you can into one room or into the garage and we can decide later whether we include that area in the listing.
If there is a fan or any other item that you don’t want to be in the property’s real estate photography, just move it somewhere.
Clean and bright, clean and bright, clean and bright! Did we mention to clean things up a bit! 😉
The big challenge in interior real estate photography is balancing the light coming from the windows with darker areas in the interior; you will see the real estate photographer turning lights on and off.
Exterior Real Estate Photography – What To Expect
Generally, we “shoot” 1. Photos; 2. Virtual Tour; and 3. Aerial / Drone imaging of the exterior of properties (unless near an airport or military base).
The exterior real estate photography generally goes quickly and will last +/- 15-45 minutes.
The Aerial Drone real estate photography work is fun; feel free to watch and ask questions!
Exterior Real Estate Photography – Homeowner To-Do List
The same gentle reminder, our real estate photographers are not movers and can’t clean or move things in the house or outside the property.
Also please declutter, declutter, declutter the outside of the home as much as you can. And the same advice … hide things in the garage or on the side of the house and we may not use those photographs.
Grass mowed (but not too short to create burning).
Ideally, move vehicles out of the driveway and/or garage for the real estate photography – but this isn’t a big deal if there is not a good place to put the vehicles.
