There are a lot of qualified buyers in the Colorado Springs marketplace who are anxious and willing to pay top dollar for homes! The problem is they have no homes to choose from!

 
Right now, inventory is as low as it has been in the last 15 years! However, there are some homes that aren't selling. How could this be, you ask? Well, one of the reasons is the failure to get professional photos taken of the property. It's crucial to have a professional photographer come to your home and take high-quality pictures. When your home goes on the market, you need to ensure everyone sees it in its best possible light from the get-go! Here's why:
  1. The first showing occurs online
  2. Homes get more showings and sell for more when they look good online
  3. Buyers have a third viewing online
You need to work with a Realtor who is smart enough to know that they don't have the skills required to take pictures of their listings. Instead, hire a Realtor who works with a professional photographer, so your home gets the widest exposure possible!
