Q?What makes FocalPoint photos better than if I do them myself?
A.

There are many things, but first of all.  You’re a Realtor.  You are great with people, and great at selling homes, and you need as much time as possible to focus on your sellers and buyers, and selling homes!  Time is valuable and it never seems like there is enough, am I right?  Now… photos.  FocalPoint has the equipment to do the job right, and by right, that means bright, sharp photos that capture the essence of every room throughout a home by having a camera system that is customizable to any room and situation.  Point and Shoot cameras can’t do this.   FocalPoint also uses off-camera lighting techniques to ensure that every room is properly lit.  Knowing the best angles to shoot at, and having an eye for what best shows a room goes a long way too!  Many Realtors think that their photos are “good enough” or “just fine”.  Your sellers want and need the BEST representation of their home on the listing.  FocalPoint does this for you and saves you tons of time in the process so that you can do what you do best, and that is typically not the photography bit.

Q?How long does a listing photo shoot take?
A.

For a typical stills-only photo shoot you should allow for 1 – 1.5 hours to complete.  Time is dependent on the size of the property, and the package.   Homes larger than 3000 sq. ft. and in-home video production usually range from 1.5 – 2 hours.

Q?How long does it take to get my photos after a photo shoot?
A.

Standard turn-around time is 24 hours… As fast or faster than anyone in the industry, BUT most of the time the wait is much shorter.  I know you want to get that listing up and buyers pouring in so every effort is made to make the photos available as soon as possible.  It will always be less than 24 hrs, but many times it is as fast as 4-6 hours!

Q?How do I get my photos once FocalPoint has taken them?
A.

You will receive a link via email to download all of your photos for the shoot.  Easy as that!   This link will remain active as long as the home is on the market, and hey, we all make mistakes… so this way you can always go back and retrieve the photos again if you lose or delete them.

Q?What areas does FocalPoint service?
A.

FocalPoint services a standard area that includes the entire OKC metro area at a 35 mile range from Yukon OK.  If a property is outside of 35 miles one-way (which most are not), there will be a small charge of $.60 per mile that exceeds the 35 mile range.
I.E. – A One way trip of 40 miles = a round trip of 80 miles 
at $.60 per additional mile (.60 x 10 additional miles) = $6.00 additional charge.

NOTE: While most properties do not fall outside of this range, FocalPoint wants to be able to service outlying areas as well, and this small charge for fuel and the extra time it takes makes this possible.
