HomeJab, which provides real estate agents with professional on-demand real estate photography and other visual production services in all 50 states, has partnered with artificial intelligence firm Restb.ai to study more than 14,000 images of homes for sale.
Professional real estate photographers hired by listing agents captured the images used for the search from a random pool of 600 properties up for sale early on. June 2022.
The HomeJab study – using computer vision technology Restb.ai found:
1. Bedroom photos topped the list. More than one in ten photos used to sell the house were bedroom photos (11.92%).
2. Kitchen photos came in second, only 1/50The tenth Less than 1% of bedroom photos (11.90%).
3. Pictures of the living room took third place with 10.79%.
4. Photos of bathrooms ranked fourth with 9.75%.
5. The front exterior photos of the top 5 most popular real estate photos zoomed in by 8.70%.
“When you go through listings of homes for sale online, you usually see an outside shot,” he said. Joe Jeswell, founder and CEO of HomeJab. “But this is not the most popular photo taken by real estate photographers. Instead, professionally shot photos of the kitchen and bedroom are the most common photos used to help sell homes,” he said.
HomeJab enlisted the help of leading real estate computer vision company, Restb.ai, to automatically sort thousands of photos of homes currently for sale, use its computer vision technology to identify the type of photo, and then sort and sort the photos.
Xavi Hernando, founder and CEO of Restb.ai, noted that “what would take the research team hundreds of hours to manually accomplish, Restb.ai was able to deliver these search results in minutes.”
Jesuele of HomeJab explains that using only professionally taken real estate photos improves the quality of study results because research shows that high-quality, professional real estate photos are more effective at selling homes.
He notes that previous research by the Real Estate Development Center shows that professional real estate photography helps homes sell 32 percent faster. and homes in $200,000 to me 1 million dollars Selling price range for 3000 Dollars to me $11,000 More when using professional photos.
Rounding out the top 15 menu images in the HomeJab study were:
6. Dining area – 4.48%
7. Air – 4.32%
8. Yard – 3.00%
9. External back – 2.48%

12. Laundry room – 1.81%
13. Deck – 1.72%

15. Foer – 1.26%
The basement (1.22%), garage (1.12%), front door (1.11%), pool (1.11%), stairs (93%) and walk-in lockers (0.66%) were at the bottom. Other photos accounted for the remaining 16.38%.
Jeswell added: “It will be interesting to see if these numbers change over time – especially as access and use of drone footage for aerial photography and video increases. Because of the pandemic, will we see more images of home offices in the future? Time will tell.”
