I sell Real Estate and as a couple of other here can attest to, it's a competitive business. First impressions are so important. I never post a home for sale unless it has decent pics to go with it, regardless of price. That's why I love my Oly. E500

Here are a couple of homes priced from $1.5 mil. and $1.5 K big spread but I still 'try' to put the same effort into the photos.

I can sell you some swampland at the rivermouth here...!

Getting creative across the lake helped thesecond one.

I had to reshoot that first one but I don't have a copy here. In the cloud between the house and the tree on the left is this little volcano, Mt Baker.

Great shots. I wish you had been in Atlanta when I sold a house up there last year. I e-mailed the real estate agent several nice shots of the house and landscaping, but all he used was his own uninteresting shots.

Thats a shame. I've used clients pics before, especially when it's December and grey and he has his summer pics.

I usualy give the owner a CD of about 35-40 photos as a momento of his house after it's sold. I'm thinking of a photobook next time, I'd like to try one and see how they realy look. Has anyone ever had one made up, several printers do them at a reasonable price nowdays.
