Adam's Area Photos For Listings

Updated: Aug 11, 2023



A commonly neglected element of real estate photography is area amenity photos, taken not at the home itself, but from the air and from the ground, within easy reach of future prospective buyers, but too far for most listing agents & photographers to take the time to care about. These amenities & local attractions often have a lot to offer. It's not uncommon for me to hear that the location is one of the reasons why a buyer would like to make an offer on a property in light of the area photos that I typically use with my listings. These photos start with HOA/Condo amenities, if applicable, but they don't stop there.


Often 50 photos is the limit for MLS input entry. A small number of area amenity photos enhance an already high square footage &/or high acreage listing, while a higher number of area amenity photos can cover significant gaps in space for a smaller home so that a full 50 photos is present. Below I wanted to share some examples of precisely that.
