Capture your property's best side

There are many different aspects to marketing your home when you’re selling to ensure you get the right buyer. Here, professional photographer Chris Warren speaks about the importance of photography to capture people’s interest.   I hope we are all agreed that when marketing a house photography is important. It always has been but in this age of the web browsing, multi-tasking, never-enough-hours-in-the-day house buyer it can be make or break, the difference between booking an appointment to view or scrolling further down the web page. And the photographer should be a good one, someone who has the eye, the technique and the vision to capture not just the building but the home that is represented by that building. It is a crowded and competitive marketplace and anything that can give a vendor an edge should be seized upon.   The right photographer will produce a set of images that will present the property as attractively as possible, maximising the chance of getting a buyer through the door. In any profession there are good and bad operators and just because someone has the gear doesn't mean they know how to use it sensitively or are prepared to put in the work required to produce the best possible images. Most houses require morning and afternoon visits with sunshine being more or less a prerequisite. Large properties will need more time still. I might spend three or four hours covering a four bedroom house but will then spend another four hours in post-production.   Few interiors shots will take less than 20 minutes at the work station to produce the feel I want them to have, there aren't many shortcuts. If I can, I like to find the quirky, idiosyncratic features of a house, those things that make it special: the architectural detail or something left over from a bygone age. It probably sounds pretentious but I am always trying to capture the spirit of a home, what makes it a unique living space and what might make someone want to live there. I said it might sound pretentious. Why bother' If you are just putting your house on the market in the hope that at some point in the future someone will buy it then don't bother. If, however, you are serious about selling, want to get on with your life and move forward then you should pay attention to every detail. It is a crowded and competitive marketplace and anything that can give a vendor an edge should be seized upon. If you want a shelf put up then you could do it yourself or get a handyman to do it for you, if you want a fine piece of furniture made you employ a craftsman and the same if most definitely true of photography.   If you would like advice on how to best market your property and getting professional photography for your home speak to your nearest Winkworth office today.
