What a privilege to share this morning on Mornings with Fox 43, WBIR News Channel 10. I hope you were able to tune-in to my segment “Selling Your Home: A Most Effective Tool.” According to Time Magazine, Spring is the best time of year to sell a house & from what I’ve witnessed, the housing market is certainly on the up-swing. If you’re considering selling your home, I encourage you to check out these real estate tips & the value that comes from taking a proactive/professional approach to making sure your home catches the eyes of potential buyers. Feel free to join the conversation & make sure to pass this graphic on to your real estate friends. Thanks!

And a few quotes from some of my realtor friends:
“Really professional photography has been the single most successful tool for me to showcase luxury properties to local and out of area buyers.” -Lucas Haun of Knoxville Fine Homes
“In order to present their home in the best possible light, I believe it’s important for sellers to understand the value of having their home professionally photographed before it hits the market. Since most buyers begin their search online, a house may be skipped over for viewing based on bad photos or lack of photos online. Good first impressions are key.” -Paula Scarbrough, Century 21
I have photographed for the Brad Mizer family on several occasions. He is the Vice President of East-West Media, Inc., located in Athens TN. He and his father Bobby have been a staple in the media community, running this company for many years. This year, Finch Photo had its first debut in billboard advertising with the help of Brad and Bobby’s guidance. They helped to decide what images are fitting with our brand and how we will rotate images relevant with the season. It has been nice to drive down the highway and notice a Finch Photo branding opportunity.
After meeting a few times, Brad said they needed updated images for their own use in marketing. He had images of the staff made a while back, but as we all know in media and marketing, images have to portray your business the best way possible. It was a pleasure to meet the staff of East-West Media, Inc.. If you need help with your business and marketing, I recommend their expertise!
There are times when I like nothing more than to photograph a home, whether it be for an interior designer, an architect, an editorial feature, or now, for real estate. There’s something about the change of pace & the opportunity to think through composition & lighting in ways that we often don’t have time to consider when photographing people or weddings. Although, shooting for real estate is rather unique from shooting for designers or editorial. It is a much quicker process & instead of focusing on 10-12 photos in a day, we capture dozens of photos. More than anything, I aim to show a beautiful first look to potential clients of the overall feel & look of the home. In most cases, we do the best we can with the available light supplied by the sun… I feel like this aids to the ‘feel’ of the home.
I was recently asked by Century 21 realtor, Paula Scarbrough, to photograph 3 of her listings. I’ve regularly been drawn to Paula’s listings, she seems to have a pretty good pulse on the types of homes that I really love. After photographing for Paula she sent me a link that I thought was really powerful about the value of having professional photographs taken when listing a home (click here to read that article). If you are in the market or love these homes, feel free to connect with Paula at 423-745-4446. The first home is listed on County Rd. 440, Athens, TN.
The second home is located on Crestwood Rd., Athens, TN.
And the third home is located on Ingleside Ave., Athens, TN.
And a beautiful new head shot of the lovely Paula Scarbrough. Thanks for the opportunity, Paula!
