If a picture tells a thousand words, it doesn’t change when it’s your house taking the center-stage. Good looking photos show off a home and entice us to look closer. Real estate agents and photographers all agree that nothing beats good photography on marketing properties. It’s something most of us know instinctively, whether we’ve been browsing for homes, proudly showing off our own for sale, or just admiring and dreaming. Good photography is as important as presenting your property well. A photograph will often be the first impression a potential buyer will have of your house, and it can influence their decision to view it.
One of the best ways to learn how to master real estate photography is to analyze great pictures to see why they work. Before you begin taking shots, put together a list of the areas you want to highlight in your real estate property. This way, a photographer will know what to look for. But if you’re doing them yourself you may forget some aspects of the home.
Here are some tips for better photographs to help you with:
Lights… action:Sounds obvious, but make sure the photos are good quality. If you decide to photograph it yourself, ensure the house is well lit with natural or electric light. A property shot late in the evening with interior lights on can look stunning.
Keep it clean:Your photos should always be digitally-framed well. Ensure the rubbish/washing/dirty dishes/hanging wires are out of view before taking the shot. Remove any items that appear to clutter or cramp spaces.
Shoot to thrill:In addition to documenting the best features of your property, people like to see a range of interior and exterior shots. Not including interior shots can be very off-putting.
Don’t be too tricky:Use photography to enhance your property, not misrepresent it. Yes, you may attract more people to your open home with photos that create the illusion of space or stand-alone instead of semi-detached, but they’ll be put off when they see they’ve been misled.
Get help:For such an important sale, always consider the benefits of using a professional photographer – they will ensure that your property looks its best to help you achieve the best possible result. You can choose a freelancer with the right expertise, experience, and reviews to help you manage your communication, legal contract, and payment.
Good photography can be the difference between a purchaser opening a web link or moving on to the next. Additionally, the way an office markets property directly reflects their professionalism to the public. Every agent now recognizes the importance of professional photography, along with a range of other tools, in successfully marketing their listings. Real estate photography could be a failure, so it’s important to look at the angles, lighting, staging, and other variables of great shots to guide how to take real estate photos for optimum results. Follow the above tips for better photographs.
