Are you a photographer looking for the best real estate photo editing service?

As a real estate photographer, you understand that the quality of your photos directly impacts your business for good or bad. Every image needs to be stunning and impressive. 

However, the challenge for many photographers is finding the right real estate photo editing service to provide perfect images that stand out. 

To help simplify your search, we want to share why PhotoUp should be your #1 option for real estate photo editing. 

So, let’s get started by considering how important high-quality photo editing is for your business. 

The Importance of a Real Estate Photo Editing Service

Real estate photo editing is essential for any successful real estate photography and sales business.

Today’s buyers have grown used to seeing only professional real estate photography, and they will only visit properties with appealing images. 

In fact, 83% of buyers said pictures were the number one factor when deciding which homes to visit.

First impressions matter, and stunning photos help sell homes, as these recent statistics show:

  • 87% of homebuyers found images to be among the most useful features of listing websites when looking for new homes
  • Viewers spend 60% of the time checking images, and only 20% read the listing description

And that’s not all. Consider these additional statistics:

  • 61.3% of brokers claim that high-quality photography is ‘essential’ when selling homes
  • About 32% of homes with professional photographs sell faster than those without such photos 
  • And listings featuring outstanding images receive 47% higher asking prices per square foot

Okay, now that you understand why high-quality images matter, let’s explain why PhotoUp is your best choice for real estate photo editing.
