A close up on your property

We are all familiar with the phrase that ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ and never is this more true than when it comes to property. Not only can great photography help draw people in and excite them about your property but it can also inspire them to transform or update their existing home.

Here are a few things to consider when getting your property ready for its close -up.

Whether it is a cosy studio flat or spacious detached house, clutter is a definite no no! Whilst potential buyers or tenants are going to be looking round your property, consider investing in some extra storage solutions or storing non-essential items somewhere else temporarily.

Items that you may find quirky and unique, may not be your potential buyers or renters cup of tea. Remove any knick knacks and consider giving the walls a quick lick of white paint. Freshly painted walls and a clean carpet can instantly transform and brighten rooms.

Look at tackling the garden or outside space, this is the first area a viewer will see. Try to make time for small jobs on the property’s exterior – this can have a significant impact on a first impression.

Once you have preened your home, make sure your effort doesn't go to waste. 90% of people now begin their property search on the internet, so how it looks online is vitally important. Our enhanced marketing package offers premium website listings and a professional photographer for sellers and a tailored Rightmove pack for landlords.
