San Diego home prices are outpacing real estate markets across the country, and it’s causing trouble for agents. The nationwide average increase this year (from 2017-18) was 6.4%. San Diego reached the sixth biggest increase with 7.3%. This, in addition to a lack of single family homes, is causing a small slump in home sales (The San Diego Union-Tribune). It is more important than ever to use professional real estate photography in San Diego. Professional photography and media is the key to getting buyers through the front door.
Why You Need a Professional San Diego Real Estate Photographer
Holiday Magazine states that San Diego is the “only area in the United States with perfect weather” (Why San Diego?). San Diego’s perfect weather naturally lends itself to beautiful real estate photography. It is a county, however, with a diverse landscape. A single family home by the mountains can require different equipment and skill sets than a condo by the ocean. Buyers need to be enticed by photos and video that show off the property’s best features, landscape, and desirable neighborhood. It’s essential to use a photographer with the best equipment to feature your piece of San Diego paradise.
