Bright, warm, inviting homes — you’ll want every property you’re selling to say: “Buy me, make me your home.” The very first opportunity you’ll have to send this sort of sale-inducing message across to potential home buyers will be when you release photos of the property on your website, for your portfolio, or for print advertising. How do you guarantee well-photographed homes, buildings, and other properties that practically leave buyers spellbound and reaching for their checkbooks? Here are three tips to consider.
First, get the property ready for its close-up. From the exterior to the interior, make sure that every corner, every space will look picture perfect. Ideally, this will have been done days before the property is going to be photographed. It should be weeks—or more—in advance for properties that may need more than just the usual paint job or clean-up.
The exterior should be cleared of any clutter. The lawn should be immaculate and appear to have been maintained regularly. The interior should look as inviting as possible. Each room or space should let potential buyers envision living in the property or using the property as an office. It would be advisable to get an interior decorator or a professional home stager to prepare the property for real estate photography. Melbourne buyers are especially critical about styling and décor so property photos that look art directed would convince them more to book a visit to the place.
Second, make your photos real and spend less time on touch ups. It is easier to make real estate photos appear more magnificent and charming and gorgeous with the aid of software like Photoshop. However, it is always better to capture the real beauty of the property without executing trickery or special effects. Moreover, processing can take time. So make sure shots are taken in the best angles and in the best light.
Finally, hire a pro and you can guarantee every shot will be mesmerising. Professional real estate photographers have the best equipment, but they also have the skills to produce stunning property photos. They’ll know how to compose their shots in a way that provides buyers with enough information about each room and how each one connects to the other without the benefit of seeing a floor plan. They’ll know what angles to use so that every element is brought into the architecture of each room. They’ll know how to avoid problem spots and enhance the look of each space.
Buying a home is generally spurred by emotions. Nothing spurs buyers to become owners of the property you’re selling quite like stunning real estate photography. Ensure enticing and captivating property photos. Use these top three tips.
