Real estate buyers put huge importance on the kitchen, living room, curb appeal, master bedrooms, backyard, and master bathrooms, pretty much in that order.
This was determined in an eye-tracking study conducted Michael J. Seiler, Professor and Robert M. Stanton Chair of Real Estate, Old Dominion University, Poornima Madhavan, Old Dominion University, Department of Psychology and Molly Liechty, Old Dominion University,Department of Psychology. The study was published June 2011 and goes into quite a bit of detail about what home buyers view when looking at properties online. Google ” Toward an Understanding of Real Estate Homebuyer, Internet Search Behavior: An Application of Ocular Tracking Technology” it if you wish to read all 36 pages of their findings.
As a professional real estate photographer, a former real estate agent and an experienced e-commerce business executive, I consider these finding extremely valuable and really critical to delivering the right photos for my Realtor clients. Because of this when I photograph a home typically the most time is spent creating photos of the kitchen and living room area. In fact, I probably spend about half of the total time at a property on these two rooms, taking multiple shots, and finding the best way to present the character of the home.
I typically photograph many homes each week and have the opportunity to see some really nice properties. I hope you enjoy these photos of kitchens I have photographed in and around the Port Washington, Cedarburg, Grafton, West Bend, Slinger, Milwaukee and Germantown areas of Wisconsin.
