Sometimes a property will be undervalued and can remain on the market for months, resulting in poor optics, lower prices, and missed sales opportunities. Such properties are often in great condition but they fail to attract buyers on listings websites. Twilight photography can be a great way to breathe new life into these ‘cold listings’ and show off these properties in an entirely different light -- literally!
Investing in great real estate photos is critical to attracting home buyers online. And twilight photography can be a great technique to showcase properties that need a little extra to breakthrough. A case study on The National Association of Realtors shows just how successful twilight photography can be, helping sell a house that was on the market for over a year in less than a week.
“A buyer made an offer less than a week after I mounted the new images on my web site. Plus, the property sold for $20,000 over the asking price.” - Harry Parson, real estate broker
It’s plain to see how twilight photography transformed this listing from plain and bland to bold and exciting. Look at these before and after photos from the NAR case study.
Twilight photos are extremely effective at helping a property stand out in catalogs and online listings. It’s a great way to differentiate a property from other similar listings and increases online views and leads. Twilight photography works especially very well for high-value luxury properties to show more details, such as unique lighting or landscape features. And for all properties, the ideal time to take a twilight photo is of course at dusk, right after the sun sets and while there is still plenty of color in the sky.
Twilight photography is best done by a professional, as it requires specialized equipment and expertise in image editing. Images must be captured with multiple long exposures and fused together using the method of HDR in post-production software to achieve the best effect. A professional photographer will know how to best edit photos and how to prepare a house, such as turning on all the lights and opening all the blinds, to maximize the impact of a twilight photo!
