We live in a time where digital photos are everywhere.  Take Instragram, Snapchat, Facebook and of course Pinterest as prime social media examples of where photos are instant forms of communication.  It's because of these social networks that consumers demand a visually appealing online presence.

According to the National Association of Realtors, nine out of 10 home shoppers begin their search on the Web.  Due to this listing photos can play a major role in how quickly your home sells, the home price it's listed at and of course even if it  sells at all.
