Earn Income Taking Pictures For Realtors
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Across the United States homeowners are desperate to sell. In markets that are saturated with similar priced homes, homeowners need their house listing to attract more attention than the rest. This presents an opportunity for taking pictures for Realtors.

Most people want to see high quality photos of big ticket items, especially houses. With a high number of homes on the market, the houses with the most quality pictures will get looked at first. In my days as a Realtor, I would skip over the listings that had bad pictures. Nice photos help narrow down the homes you want to look at so you are not wasting time driving all over town. Big time real estate agents don't have time to market homes themselves. A lot of them will hire others to do that for them. They aren't looking to buy a nice camera. Spending time learning how to snap quality photos and learning how to use editing software is not something agents want to spend time on. I have seen some horrible looking photos that agents have taken of their listings. A perfectly nice looking home may not attract buyers and their agents due to the low quality pictures.

For Sale By Owner home sellers provide another market you can tap into. Since they are not working with a real estate broker, they need all of the help they can get with advertising their home. Finding your clients is pretty easy. Drive around surrounding neighborhoods and you will notice who the high producing agents are. Check out benches at bus stops, a lot of them feature a real estate agent. You want to market to the busy agents who have a lot of clients and little time. They need to make a case for why sellers should list with them and not the many other Realtors in their area. Agents offering professional photography services could help them get a listing in this competitive market. There are many different areas of photography where you can earn income. Specializing in a niche such as real estate photography means lower competition and can be very profitable in this stale housing market.

My wife supplements our income with photography. She is able to bring in extra money even while taking care of our small children due to the flexibility of this business. Even in a tough economy, quality photographs are important to people. There are many ways to make money in photography: portraits, weddings, parties, real estate, to name a few. Become your own boss and start your new career today!
