One core aspect of a successful real estate listing, whether it is a home or commercial property, is photos of properties that are for sale. Before the potential buyers go into the details of the listing, the initial attraction will be based on the photos, and if they don’t find the photos appealing to them, the listing may end up getting very little attention. Presented below, are a few tips to help deliver the best real estate photography that will make it much easier for you to sell your property:
Take picture of what counts
In real estate photography, potential buyers are interested in reviewing properties that are described in great detail. You should start by taking clear images of the exterior, before moving on to the interior. The photos should show the pertinent features such as the doors, the roof, windows, and the compound. Pay close attention to the time of day that you take these pictures and consider the shadows being cast by the sun. In addition, try to avoid poor weather conditions such as rain and snow.
Regarding the interior, avoid taking photos with a lot of clutter, as the potential buyer will want to imagine their stuff inside the building. This will not be possible if you show cluttered photos in the listings.
Take brighter images
The majority of professional photographers agree that the best shots are taken using natural lighting. Therefore, you should schedule your real estate photography session on a sunny day if possible, and open all the windows and curtains to allow as much light as possible into the interior shots. This will lead to bright images, which will make your listing standout.
Take exterior shots from an angle
If you are taking pictures of single-family homes, it is recommended that you take the shots from an angle, instead of taking them directly from the front view. This will allow some depth, so that viewers don’t see it as a flat 2D view of the home.
Do not include obstructions such as telephone poles, power lines, or dumpsters. These will do nothing but reduce the appeal of the home, and distract viewers from the main objects.
Take lots of photos
Finally, take lots of photos of the property. This is the most guaranteed way to give potential viewers as many details as possible about the house or commercial building, and make it easy for them to decide to allocate some time to check it out.
