In psychology, a first impression is the event when one person first encounters another person and forms a mental image of that person. Impression accuracy varies depending on the observer and the target (person, object, scene, etc.) being observed. According to several studies, it takes a person on average only seven seconds to formulate a first impression. Once the first impression is formed, the observer quickly moves on, and changing that impression is extremely challenging.
In real estate (and specifically for this conversation selling your home), the first impression can be locked in by a home buyer in four seconds or less, usually based of the initial images and media they experience of a given property. This is why having the best media possible for your listing is so important when marketing your listing.
Let’s get one thing straight. Smart phone camera technology has come a long way in recent years. For most people, a smart phone and it’s camera have replaced the family point and shoot as well as the cam-corder. While fine and well for most personal applications, a smart phone (even the latest and greatest ones), will not produce the professional quality needed to effectively market a property for sale.
