It is most likely that anyone looking for a property will be searching on Rightmove or an equivalent and with so many properties available to look at, poor quality images are guaranteed to stop buyers booking a viewing. So your home has to stand out to make sure people don’t discount you.
I have seen so many examples of photos taken using poor lighting, bad angles and even blurred – poor photography going to lose you viewings, it is also going to contribute to the price. Just as a perfectly decorated home will go for a higher price than a similar property that’s tatty and in need of work, badly presented pictures do impact how people feel about your asking price, so you need to make sure that you are that property which presents itself to it’s fullest potential.
When preparing to sell a house people often give it a new coat of paint, spruce up the garden, and clean every nook and cranny, I know, I have done it myself. So after you have gone to so much effort to make your home really stand out to prospective buyers, why leave the photographic representation of your home to an amateur? It’s like falling at the last hurdle of a race – if you don’t have great pictures, all your home improvement efforts may be wasted. Your prospective buyer may pass your property over for a more inviting picture.
