The buying process starts with the click of a mouse and can result in one of the most important purchases of a lifetime. When using property search websites, the buyer usually narrows the search criteria with elements such as price, location, and number of bedrooms, so their next click action is based on photography. As a result, the first, primary exterior photo is absolutely critical to the sale of a home. After clicking on a specific listing, the following photographs need to support the initial decision to investigate that property further, and motivate the viewer to organize a viewing.

With the market growing ever tougher countrywide, gaining that extra click can be an important step to securing a sale and earning your commission.
