Now every agent can benefit from great visual content in seconds

We know from our customer research that being able to showcase the property that looks the best it can online is the key to winning more instructions, getting more interest from buyers and selling property faster, for a better price. That’s why our innovation team have been hard at work developing PropertyBox, so all estate agents, whatever their size, can have access to professionally enhanced photos, returned in seconds so they can be instantly uploaded to websites and across your social media platforms for immediate impact.

 

 

AI Technology

 

We use leading digital technology, including AI, to provide vertical correction, brightness adjustment, colour enhancement, shadow boosting and blue-sky replacement, all the visual elements that win the all-important click. Finished photos are back in the agent’s inbox within seconds and the service costs half the price of solutions that take hours and are often returned at times when you’re not doing your admin work, wasting precious marketing time and frustrating your customers who want to get serious buyers through the door quickly.

 

Customer Privacy

 

We know how important it is to protect your customer’s privacy so as well as creating far superior images, each one is also fully GDPR compliant with personal photographs blurred and car number plates obscured.

 

No Manual Editing

 

Using an instant photo enhancement service means no more hours wasted manually enhancing photos yourself – each one can simply be uploaded from a phone and instantly processed at any time of day or night. That means amazing photography on all your listings in seconds, freeing up your time to carry out valuations and win more instructions in this highly competitive market.

 

Scale-up listings faster with professional photos edited in seconds

 

Professional-looking visuals could be what tip the scales in your favour, encouraging vendors to come to you rather than one of your rivals. Those who market properties the best will always win the listing and in the current supply shortage, agents can’t afford to miss out. The best way for agents to compete to win valuations, successfully converting them to instructions, is to stand out with professional-looking photography and floorplan, add 360 tours and you will show the seller you’re serious about marketing their property.

 

We find when estate agents start to use visual content, they change their position from, “Is this something I really need?” to, “This is helping me show customers just how much better I am as an agent and how much more I can do for them,” and that’s helping them win greater market share.

 

Businesses across the world who are invested in high quality visual content recognise its power and, if done well, the difference it can make to the bottom line. According to AirBnB, colour is the most important component affecting demand for its properties. Their research shows that improving colour attributes by one standard deviation could bring extra revenue of almost £5,000 a year for a single rental property. Quite simply, improving photo quality has a direct economic impact. That’s something to celebrate and now the tools are literally at your fingertips.

Introducing ‘Properties’ – Store all your photos and floorplans under one property

We’ve made some improvements to your PropertyBox dashboard, meaning it’s now much easier to manage your orders. You can now store all the photos and floorplans in the same place under a single property name, rather than under separate orders.

What’s changed?

No more flicking between separate orders to find the images you need. Just click ‘Create Property’ on the main page, assign the Property name of your choice and once inside, you can upload as many photos and floorplan sketches as you like – ten at a time. There is no limit on the number of photos within a Property – and once they’re enhanced, you can download them altogether, making it even faster and easier for you to get new listings online.

What about existing orders?

We’ve already sorted your previous orders, whether it was a photo enhancement or floor plan order, into ‘Untitled’ properties. Everything is easy to find by address or postcode, and you can rename them any time you wish by simply clicking the pencil icon and entering a new Property name.

How will this help me?

In a nutshell, Properties will make it much easier for you to manage your PropertyBox orders, go back to past orders, review enhancements and download all the photos and floorplans by listing at the same time.

If you have any queries or would like to arrange a demo, just contact us on live chat or support@propertybox.io.

Save time and money by outsourcing key marketing elements to the professionals

We know you are constantly juggling tasks to make sure you can focus on the important aspects of winning instructions and progressing sales but, without eye-catching photography and clear floorplans, your agency is instantly at a huge disadvantage. That’s where PropertyBox comes into its own, saving you time and money by producing these vital tools of estate agency service super quickly and within budget.

It couldn’t be quicker

You have just 2.7 seconds to grab someone’s attention online, but it can take considerably longer to achieve professional quality photography for your listings if you’re trying to do it yourself, often with just a smart phone. How do you make your skies bluer? Is your photography lacking in oomph and just a bit colourless, languishing in the shadows? Now you can upload your shots via our client portal and, in just one click, our AI photo enhancement software will transform your photos in seconds, ready to be instantly uploaded to Rightmove and Zoopla. It couldn’t be quicker.

We’ve asked our partner agents how long it would have taken before using PropertyBox to touch up their own photography and the answer is, “hours – and that’s without interruptions to deal with important call and queries”. How much time could you save to concentrate on securing valuations, client relations and progressing sales by switching to the country’s leading photo enhancement service?

Stand out at valuations

Homebuyers spend 80% of their time looking at property photography and just 20% reading the description. You can prove to potential clients at the valuation stage that you are prepared to go that extra mile to ensure their property stands out from competition, sells quicker and for a higher price, by showing them your outstanding listings.

Not only that, but do you do the most you can to protect your clients’ privacy? PropertyBox automatically blurs faces, personal photographs around the home and car number plates. That’s peace of mind you don’t have to make more time for.

Try before you buy

We can help to build your brand to show that you always present your properties for sale or rental to the highest standard. We’re so confident you’ll love our service that you can even ‘try before you buy’. Just upload a selection of property photographs for enhancement to see the results before signing up to one of our highly competitive packages.
