If you are serious about selling your property, hire a photographer who’s serious about producing high quality images for you.
As a professional interiors photographer, I showcase homes with perfect lighting techniques, the best perspective, and produce a beautiful collection of images that make houses appealing to potential buyers.
Photographing interiors is a specialist skill. Knowing how to shoot a room to maximise its best features, or ensuring buyers see the true potential of a fixer-upper, takes time and the right equipment.
There are many types of lighting equipment, wide angle cameras, filters and after effects that I use to create flattering, high impact pictures of the interior and exterior of homes.
Not only does using the right equipment lead to more eye-catching images, as an experienced photographer I find the right perspective for each room.
The subtle effect of looking at a group of perfectly balanced pictures has a positive impact on people who are considering making the huge investment of buying a new house.
Why Do High Quality Pictures Matter?
The potential buyer of your home is more likely to be sitting at home browsing Rightmove than sat in the estate agent’s office bent over a catalogue. With so many properties available to look at, poor quality images stop buyers booking a viewing. So your home has to stand out.
How many times have you seen a picture of a bathroom pitched at such an odd angle that it takes you a few minutes to figure out what you are looking at? Or the image is blurred so much you feel they are trying to hide something?
Not only is poor photography going to lose you viewings, it is also going to affect the price. Just as a perfectly decorated home will go for a higher price than a similar property that’s tatty and in need of work, badly presented pictures do affect how people feel about your asking price.
When preparing to sell a house people often give it a new coat of paint, spruce up the garden, and clean every nook and cranny. So after you have gone to so much effort to make your home more inviting to prospective buyers, why leave the photographic representation of your home to an amateur? If you don’t have great pictures, all your home improvement efforts may be wasted. Your prospective buyer may pass your property over for a more inviting picture.
Why Pay When Pictures Are Included In Estate Agent Fees?
Estate agents aren’t photographers.
Just as you wouldn’t want your plumber fixing your car, you don’t want an amateur photographer taking pictures of your home when it goes on the market. Estate agents have their professional skill set in selling properties, but it is not often they have spent years training to take beautiful interior shots of homes. Often they have a slimline camera, don’t understand lighting, and don’t have the time to spend on creating a great array of pictures.
Your Property Looks Its Best When Shot by a Professional
When a professional interior photographer looks at your home, it is with the eye on what perspective will set it off in the best light. They ensure that each photograph compliments each other, creating a cohesive portfolio of pictures that build an attractive case for people to view your home.
Great Pictures Motivate Buyers
With more house hunters looking at properties online, you need to entice them to click on your house to find out more and make that appointment to view. Excellent pictures encourage buyers to do just that.
Poor Images Damage a Property’s Selling Potential
There is a limit on everyone’s time and when it comes to making a decision on what house to buy, don’t let bad pictures of your home prevent viewings. People create shortlists based on many things and the pictures on a website help buyers weed out properties that don’t look right. A dark room, confusing angles and blurred pictures are all turn-offs. Without a unique selling point, such as selling the only four bed detached with a turret in 50 miles, your property may well get passed over.
It’s a Buyers Market
Unless you are lucky enough to live in a real estate hot spot, it is a buyers market out there. When selling a house you have to do everything you can do to make your house more appealing to potential buyers. Expertly shot images, that accurately represent your property, give you an advantage over similar properties in your area.
