What photos showcase the best property listings?

It’s no secret that photography sells properties and good property photography sells property faster and often for a higher price than those with mediocre images.

It can also help to elevate your brand and bring in higher-value listings going forward for your business.

Win win!

 

What photos do you need to showcase?

 

Here are our 3 tips for an overall better listing post.

 

1. Curb appeal: THE best image to use should be a photograph of the outside of your home.

First impressions count so make sure you do everything you can to enhance your property’s curb appeal. If 68% of home buyers think kerb appeal is important when buying a home (Survey by YouGov) then this should be the first image they see and a superb one. If the weather isn’t right come back on a day that the lights is good and play with angles leading into the house.

 

2. There’s always an angle: Duplicating a few images of the same room is fine, but try to add some from different angles to give the viewer a real idea of the space.

Ensure you have images of the kitchen (the most important room in the house from a viewer’s perspective), living room or large bedroom. Then think of the location and needs of those living in the area – For example, photos of large storage areas, especially in cities where space is at a premium would be a bonus.

 

3. Leave it out: Don’t take pictures of everything in the house.

It’s best to avoid any unnecessary photographs such as stairs, boilers, or small cluttered rooms that are unlikely to entice someone to view your property.

 

Finally. The order of your photos can be important and help tell a story, or help the viewer to feel they were walking around the house from the front door – we recommend this order: the exterior/garden/front door, hallway, kitchen, dining room, living room, bedrooms.
