What Real Estate Photography Footage Do I Need?

In this post we would like to share some of our experiences from working with our extensive network of realtors as we continue to film real estate properties from the ground, interior, and from the air all over the Tampa Bay area.

One of the most common questions we get from our customers is what photography package do we recommend for their listing. Obviously not all listings are created equal, but we do have some loose recommendations we follow when working with most of our customers.

For example, paying for a full interior, exterior, and aerial video real estate package does not make sense if the property is going to list for $350K. Just like selecting an interior and exterior only package does not make sense when the house is going to list for over $1M.

So below is a table which shows what we typically recommend to our customers:

Real Estate Property Value: $100 – $150,000

Recommended Photography Package: None
Explanation: Properties in this range usually will not benefit from professional photography at all

Real Estate Property Value: $160,000 – $300,000

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior Only
Explanation: Properties in this range primarily just need high quality interior and exterior pictures. If the property has a lot of land, waterfront, or a great community, we may recommend aerial as well

Real Estate Property Value: $300,000 – $500,000

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial
Explanation: Properties in this range will usually benefit from aerial pictures as well as interior and exterior pictures.  Also at the higher end of this price range we start recommending virtual tours of the property.

Real Estate Property Value: $500,000 – $1M

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial / Virtual Tour
Explanation: Properties in this range we recommend interior, exterior, aerial, and a virtual tour. For the higher end of this range we recommend our enhanced virtual tours which include exterior video in addition to interior and exterior pictures

Real Estate Property Value: $1M+

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial / Aerial Video / Exterior Video /Interior Video
Explanation: Properties in this range we recommend everything to make your listing stand out and to show your customer that you will stop at nothing to sell their exquisite home as quickly as possible.

Exceptions

Keep in mind that these are very loose guidelines and we frequently adjust our recommendations based on the customer’s requirements. Sometimes the real estate agent only won the seller’s business by guaranteeing certain services such as a virtual tour or aerial footage. In those cases we are happy to oblige since we are a full service aerial, traditional, and video provider.  But we are in the business to ensure our customer’s get the most value for their footage which is why we make these recommendations.
