PIERRE GALANT PHOTOGRAPHY: Blog http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog en-us (C) PIERRE GALANT PHOTOGRAPHY pierregalant@gmail.com (PIERRE GALANT PHOTOGRAPHY) Mon, 22 Feb 2016 18:16:00 GMT Mon, 22 Feb 2016 18:16:00 GMT When Photoshopping goes a bit to far. http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/when-photoshopping-goes-bit-to-far

This extreme example out of Sydney, Australia (http://petapixel.com/2016/02/16/real-estate-photo-illegal-false-advertising/)  raises the question of what is ethical and what is not when it comes to editing images to hide unpleasant details about real estate listings.

Although the responsibility to disclose material facts about the home lies only with the home seller and their agent, we photographers must ask ourselves what, if any, alterations are acceptable when creating an image for Real Estate purposes.

At Pierre Galant photography, we have devised the following guidelines when it comes to this question:

It is acceptable to remove or enhance objects that are temporary such as parked cars, trash cans, toys, garden hoses, graffitti,  or even yellow grass that would easily become green with some watering.

We also deem acceptable to remove permanent objects that obstruct the view of the home that we are trying to depict such as street lamps, power lines, tree branches etc.

What we do not remove are permanent features that do not hide the home, and are a material fact about the home itself -- Power lines and objects that obstruct the view from the home, presence of neighboring houses, cracks on the home and driveway etc.

And since the image from Australia also raises the question of sky replacement, we should note that we do practice sky replacement and enhancement when is adds visual interest to the photograph. Here is Los Angeles, the sky is so often bright blue, that we don't mind adding a few high clouds to break the monotony of an all-blue sky.

Take a look:

Realtors, don't be that guy! http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/12/realtors-dont-be-that-guy

This post makes a strong statement, and perhaps a little harsh, but the harshest thing is that this is a real listing photo as it appears as of December 3, 2014 on the Multiple Listing Service.

Everything from the empty frame at the top, to the pink background, to the agent's bathroom "selfie" and to the toilet seat up demonstrate a total incompetence in the art of interior photography.

This is not an image from an MLS "out in the boonies somewhere."

It is right here, in DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES. A city envied the word over for its production of beautiful images. A city where many potential buyers of real estate work in the industry that creates those images.

This occurs a full year after studies have been released that prove the efficacy of professional photography when marketing listings.

So there really are no excuses. Realtors, please just don't be that guy, have some self-respect and hire a professional photographer.

Photographs are your listing's "first showing." http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/10/photographs-are-your-listings-first-1

With most home buyers starting their search online today, the photographs you use are essentially your listing's "first showing".

Just like you would meticulously prepare the home for its first showing, it's important to invest in quality professional photography that will compel buyers to come see the home in the first place.

Look at the images here, can you see the difference? So will your buyers, and so will your happy sellers that will in turn refer you business over and over.

Of course, not every homeowner is is Martha Stewart and some homes may lead Realtors to think  "Why even bother photographing this, let's just price the home low enough and hope it sells..."

This mentality goes back to the history of the Real Estate business, when inventory was kept hidden from the public at large in physical books that were only accessible to Realtors.  The target audience for the marketing materials back then was fellow Realtors and so it made sense that their professional eye wouldn't need fancy photographs to discern which properties would be most suitable for their home buyers.

Today it is the consumers are who are the direct recipient of the marketing efforts. Let's face it, how often are Realtors made aware of the new inventory by their own clients?

There has been a change in target audience, and determining your target audience is the starting point of all marketing.

That's why according to Realtor.com,  "The photos of your house, along with the pricing and listing description, determine whether or not your house is considered good enough for an in-person look, or placed on the “do-not-see” list. [...]  Your house needs to put its best (square) foot forward! Otherwise, buyers-who are much more in control today of what houses they see and which ones they don’t-will eliminate it just by looking at the photos online."

Don't you think it's time you provide the professional guidance your sellers expect form the expert who's supposed to direct the marketing of their most expensive possession?

How to sell your listings for $7,528 more. http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/we-looked-up-sales-records-and-crunched-1



Sure, the market's been pretty hot and our Realtor clients have amazing skills.  Among those skills, of course, is the art of marketing their seller's most important asset with the best photography.

So we looked up our sales records and crunched the numbers, and after hours of spread sheet building, the numbers are in...

Between September 2013 and September 2014, Realtors who have used our Pierre Galant Photography have seen their listings sell for an average of $7,258 over asking price!

The average home was listed just over $590,000, which means that the price increase represented 1.25% of the sales price.

That's 50% of the typical listing agent commission!

How would you like walking into a listing appointment knowing that half of your fee virtually pays for itself?

It's the kind of confidence that comes from knowing you're offering the best marketing for your clients.

The confidence to better compete for listings and even to justify a higher commission rate than your competition's.

Never Sell a Home, Sell a Lifestyle. http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/8/the-most-successful-brands-never-sell-1

The most successful brands never sell a product, they sell an emotional attachment to their brand.  

The difference between successful Realtors with multiple monthly sales and those without, is that 
instead of focussing on selling one home here and there, they have taken the time to develop their branding strategy to the point where consumers will ask specifically for their expertise, over and over.

The best Realtors are experts at integrating gorgeous photography in developing that lifestyle image. Check out some of our featured architecture and get inspired to take your business to the next level.

How to stand out from the other Realtors in your area. http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/6/using-same-photographer-as-of-realtors-1 What's almost as bad as not using professional real estate photography?

Using the same established photographer than everyone in your area uses.

Not only is it often more expensive, but how are you supposed to stand out from the crowd when your marketing materials are exactly the same as your competition?

Nothing makes you more of a commodity than doing exactly what everyone else does.

The images her are examples of the level of artistry we strive to achieve in our images. Such as climbing a huge hill in front of a home to better situate it in its environment. Or such as waiting for the ideal lighting in a backyard to show the spring foliage at its best.


That's the kind of attention to detail that will make your listings stand out and we strive

to deliver that result on every shoot.]]>

Why we think DTLA has the greatest farming potential for Realtors. http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/5/we-had-little-fun-and-looked-up-one-of-1

We had a little fun and looked up one of Los Angeles's worst areas for Real Estate Photography: Downtown LA.

This is a very strange phenomenon to observe gentrification all over that area, yet somehow the local Realtors have been very slow to gentrify their own work standards.  This link will take you to a slide show we did that shows that even million dollar listings are not getting proper exposure either.

If you're a DTLA Realtor reading this, please let us know what is the reason for that strange state of affairs.

If you're like us you see a tremendous opportunity to grow your business by farming in this area using superior photography. We'd definitely be interested in teaming up in righting this wrong! ]]>

How Listing Agents Can Demand Higher Commissions http://pierregalantphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/1/how-to-demand-higher-fees-1

We attended an interesting conference for Realtors by Steve Shull of Performance coaching.

Steve made the point that Listing agents should charge more money for their services than Buyer's agents because not only were they instrumental in getting the home to the market, but also they were taking the upfront financial risk of paying for the marketing of the home.

He suggested a typical commission split of 6%, with 2.5% going to the buyer's agent and 3.5% going to the seller's agent.

Of course, such a scheme can only be convincing for sellers if the Realtor is able to present powerful examples of their marketing with gorgeous photography at its core.

On a typical $500k home, that extra .5% means and extra $2,500 commission, and we think $2,500 is well worth the couple hundred dollars invested in professional photography.
