So you're looking for a new home, where do you start looking? Well if youre anything like me it will be on the internet on one of the property websites such as Rightmove or Zoopla. So what would be the first thing to make a lasting impression on you, the lengthy paragraph of information on the property or the beautiful photographs? As the saying goes 'a picture paints a thousand words' and so you want those 'words' to be powerful ones.
Professional property photography is essential when selling your property. If you have worked hard getting your house up together to go on the market then why wouldn't you get the best photographs possible to show it off and make it stand out on property websites. Take a look on Rightmove at the houses for sale in your area, and look closely at the photographs for properties in your price bracket, Many of the images you will see will have exterior photographs that look like the house is falling backwards, wonky interior walls, blown-out windows that don't show the view outside, only capture a section of a room, don't have lights & lamps turned on; resulting in dull, uninspiring images.
Estate Agents are good at introducing potential buyers to houses and negotiating a sale, they should tell you that they are not professional photographers and will therefore not be able to provide you with the type of photographs you need to make your home stand out online. They should recommend the services of a professional photographer to capture your home at its best.
Professional photographs will increase the number of enquiries and viewings by potential buyers and therefore help increase the opportunity of achieving your asking price in the shortest time possible. Knowing how to photograph a property and create stunning images is a skill that takes time, creative flair and specialist equipment and knowledge. Here at Impact Photography we aim to provide you with beautiful images that will make your home stand out from the competition both online and in printed details. Furthermore, you can pay Impact Photography direct so that if you decide to change estate agents you can give your professional photographs to the next agent avoiding any further photography costs.
Remember your home is usually the biggest purchase of your life and your largest asset. Make sure you choose an estate agent carefully but most importantly ensure you have professional photographs taken to make an impact, that way you'll sell for the best price in the shortest time.
