Andrew Mayon Gets Coverage On AOL Real Estate Blog

Published: 19/03/2011
By: larry

Congratulations to Andrew Mayon of Greensboro, NC for getting some good coverage in the AOL real estate blog today. I talked to David Koeppel, the freelance writer who wrote the article a few days ago.

David was asking all the right questions about real estate photography. Why are only 15% of agents using professional real estate photographers? Can home buyers really see the difference between amateur photos that many agents take and professionals take? Is there proof that professional photos increase the final sale price? Who pays for the professional photography? He also wanted to talk to home sellers and their feelings about real estate photography.

I think David did a good job at covering the subject of real estate photography. The more of these kinds of articles we get out there the better!

One comment on “Andrew Mayon Gets Coverage On AOL Real Estate Blog”

  1. I think there's a thousand and one reasons why Agents need to use professional photographers. There's even a new site dedicated to those who don't. Check it out - http://www.dumbagents.com. Coughing up 6 percent of a sale price for the rubbish agents shoot themselves because they don't want to invest a cent in marketing is the baseline.
    In Australia, Vendors pay for all advertising and Agents take about 2.6%. And that's the high end.
    This ensures the marketing is high quality; in a downturn market, when you need to deliver content that stands out, do you seriously think your local Agent, armed with a FLIP camera, is going to expose that property to 250,000 people. No.
    And for all the whackers who start trolling about the NEO vids, they did the job; putting close to half a million eyeballs on two properties; 10% of which were serious buyers. The argument killer on this level is price. If the Vendor wants more than the market is prepared to pay, there will never be a sale. But it needs a pro photographer or cinematographer or property marketing company to deliver those eyeballs.
    Real estate agents. Well. They're real estate agents.
