Its All About The Bigger Picture

I was browsing through properties this morning to see what has sold recently, I noticed something that made me wince on more than one occasion. I'm sure you'll agree with me on some level, whether you’re looking for a place or you've just popped your home on the market that some of the pictures are nothing short of horrendous. Take this atrocious shot by a local agent who shall remain nameless to save them any further embarrassment;



Now to anyone just browsing this doesn't look to bad, however if we compare this shot to the one below of the exact same property taken by another agent, we can see which agent wants to get the best sale on the property for their client.


Let me assure you, taking excellent photographs most certainly is not something that any old chap can pull off! Honestly, if it’s a good agent who wants to get the best out of your home this should be part of the package without question. After all, their job is to sell or let your property, not to have it sitting on their books for 6 months to a year with little or no interest, but I am still baffled by all of those home owners who will settle for those dark, dreary pictures that really don’t do any justice to their beautiful living spaces and gardens.

In this business, pictures mean everything. If someone looking at your home doesn't see just how amazing it is from those snaps taken, then they won’t book an appointment to come and actually see it with their own eyes. Luckily the owner of the property put this property with two agents if they didn't they would missing out in potential tenants or buyers. I will continue to stand by what I’ve always said – nothing beats a professional photographer. Photos that look like they've been taken on an iPhone by someone who is hung-over from a heavy night out just won’t cut it, whether it’s a cosy 1 bedroom flat or a 5 bedroom detached with a double garage and 2 acres of land.
