What qualifies a home as a “luxury listing”?
Luxury homes are typically over 4000 sq. ft., have a list price north of $1 million, have large interiors with grand views, sprawling exteriors and feature high-end finishes and amenities.
While I use the same high-end techniques for all of my real estate photography, I use a different price structure for luxury listings to reflect a service that is tailored for each unique home and accounts for the extra time required in shooting a luxury home.
For luxury homes I will:
Schedule the shoot around the best time of day to capture a particular view, or make a return trip when the view is clear
Make sure large interior spaces are well lit and look great
Include detail shots of architectural highlights and high-end amenities
Take extra time in Photoshop to make sure the grass is green, skies are clear and interiors are immaculate
Take extra time in staging magazine-like images—the likes of which buyers would expect to see in Architectural Digest or Dwell
A luxury home takes planning to get the best images. I ask that you make time for a 20 minute walk-through prior to the shoot so we can discuss what needs to be captured and the number of photos that will be produced.
