Tips for preparing for interior & exterior property photography
Interior Property Photography
Clear any clutter or anything that will distract you from looking at the room, a tidy space implies it’s a well looked after property and clean, which are two really important things to people looking through your photos, simplicity is the key.
Change any light bulbs that have blown as this will give your room a warm homely glow to potential buyers. Also hide any wires that may be showing in your rooms, again back to simplicity it pays a lot to pick up on tiny details that others may miss.
Exterior Property Photography
Hide bins and tidy the area at the front of your property, also move cars to show space to whoever is looking at your photographs. It can be inconvenient but the last thing you want people to think is that it looks unorganised and untidy, or that it doesn’t look like there is a lot of space for their car etc. You want people to see your property in its best light. Remember every single person that looks at a property, flat or business is your potential buyer. It’s only a matter of time before your potential buyer or tenant is found, the chances are if you have hired a professional photographer to take your photos, it will be a lot faster than you think.
