PFRE: Is Zillow Entering the Field as a Direct Competitor? DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsHome3D (2259): In Los Angeles I never get asked about doing a Zillow "3D Home" tour or video anymore. The boost they reward listings with for doing these is meaningless and the video or tour looks awful compared to other platforms. What I really don't understand is why the MLS's nationwide don't all get together and cease releasing listings, photos and data to the aggregators entirely. Yeah, I get it. If Coldwell does this, it means their...
PFRE: "Should I offer 3D tours/Matterport, etc?" as a Add On DanSmigrod 3 6 monthsbryanhscott (762): @DanSmigrod My new rate card promotes pre-made packages, which center on the tour first, with add-ons being something else, like DSLR photos or video, drone photos or video. Clients can still order ala carte and build their own package, but my minimum work order amount is set at $250. As well, I have a new section called, "Agent-Assist," which includes items that help the agent complete their MLS listings, pick-up deliver and plant...

Adding photography service to Matterport service Wingman 8 1 yearChemistrydoc (1264): @Wingman Exactly what JonJ said! Your clients don't know what you don't know. Nor do they know what you are capable of learning! And, always remember Ely's Law: Wear the right costume and the part plays itself! All the Best, Keith

PFRE: How to Be Efficient at a Real Estate Photoshoot DanSmigrod 2 1 yearChemistrydoc (1264): @DanSmigrod This short little blog contribution says more than many multi-page articles on the same subject. I've discovered a virtually identical methodology - especially taking some time with the map and planning the exterior shots. For more help, you can use The Photographer's Ephemeris - really useful app for planning exterior photography. The bottom line is to show up with a plan. Do the walkthrough. Address all staging areas...
Video: How does licensing photos for real estate photography work? DanSmigrod 2 1 yearimmersivespaces (1121): Disagree on one point, the distribution of real estate listing photos is actually very high. Listing photos can appear on hundreds, if not thousands of websites through IDX distribution. This is one area where photographers have cut themselves short. What has also driven the licensing fee down in most markets is competition from other photographers, not smaller distribution. Over the past two decades, licensing fees for real estate photos are...
PFRE: 'What Size Photos Should Real Estate Photographers Deliver?' DanSmigrod 2 1 yearimmersivespaces (1121): It really depends on their usage. For us, we contacted the local MLS providers and got their maximum recommended size. If images are uploaded to the MLS at the recommended size, no further processing is done on the server side, so the image quality is great. If they are too large, they get compressed and sharpened weird and look terrible. In the end, we provide several sizes for our clients: MLS (Varies in size depending on the client's MLS...
Charge for Cancellations of Photo Shoots? DanSmigrod 2 3 yearsaarongeis (70): Hi all, I agree with the answer given in the first response on the blog. For me it depends on the client relationship and how busy I am in practice. My contract states that written notice must be given 48 hours prior to the scheduled shoot time or I will invoice for 50% of the cost estimate. For clients I haven't worked with before or that I only work for infrequently I ask for a 50% deposit to secure the scheduled shoot time with the...
PFRE: Should I Buy a Matterport Camera? DanSmigrod 1 3 yearsDanSmigrod (22098): Hi All, Matterport is frequently a topic in the (excellent) Photography For Real Estate blog.
