Why good quality photography matters

Why good quality photography matters

12th Feb, 2020

Many people underestimate the power of high quality images when you're trying to sell your house. When you think about it, the pictures are the first things potential renters or buyers see, so this is your chance to attract them to book a viewing.

What are the benefits of making an effort with your photography? We take a look in our latest blog...

Increase in viewings 

Research has shown that listings accompanied by professional photography can generate much more interest than those with poor imagery. When you pick an estate agent to represent you, make sure you ask to see examples of their work. Remember, you're the client and so you mustn't be afraid to ask for what you want and if they're not up to your standard - ask for them to be done again! 

Use the weather to your advantage 

When you're planning photography, make sure the weather is on your side and does the property justice. No matter how nice the décor and external features are, picking a rainy or grey day really can make all the difference. 

Consider what potential buyers and renters would like to see both inside and out - think light and airy rooms and outdoor pictures with blue sky in the background!  

Use a professional 

Not only do professionals understand the importance of light and staging, they also have the equipment for it. This includes lights, a top-quality camera and the best lenses to capture properties perfectly. 

Importantly, they'll have a variety of lenses that they will chop and change between depending on the type of photograph they're taking.

Do your bit

As essential as professional photographs are, they will not work miracles. Before the photographer arrives, make sure the property is as clean and tidy as possible. 

Take the time to ensure that excess furniture and belongings are stored outside of the home, wherever possible. Where required, walls should be given a fresh coat of paint and the space should be spotless and free of excess clutter.
