Selling a house or property definitely is not easy, and capturing its true vibe and essence is important if you want to sell it right away. A photo is worth a thousand words, which is why you have to work hard when trying to design your real estate before taking photos of it.
Below, we’ll give you designing tips on how you can make your house, studio, or property look amazing on camera. If you feel like you are in the dark with this though, then do not hesitate to get a professional commercial photographer instead.
The Camera Can See Through Your Windows
You would most likely want to focus on just the property’s interior, but you have to remember that, of course, the camera can see through your windows. This means that your viewers will see what type of neighborhood you have and what the other houses or buildings near you look like.
If you do not want the outdoors to be pictured, then consider hanging curtains on your windows. However, if you feel like the outdoors has a great view and the natural lighting looks amazing, then go ahead and include it in the frame!
Steer Clear of Loud Colors
Loud and overly bright colors tend to drive people away, especially if this is a house that we are talking about. You would want to stick to neutral colors such as white, beige, and brown, as these colors tend to evoke peace and calm in people.
We are not only talking about the wall paint here, but you would also have to pay attention to the furniture, floors, and basically everything that is included in the frame.
Keep the Carpets and Floors Clean
You would want the floors to look all shiny and your carpets to look properly vacuumed, so go ahead and do that before taking snapshots of your property. Put a lot of effort to making the property look new and you’d most likely have a buyer in no time!
You would also want to make sure that your floors are free from footprints and even the slightest hint of dirt. Your carpets should look fluffy and not worn out, so make sure to sweep them or vacuum them to make them seem like new again!
Remove the Furniture
You can take a couple of shots with the furniture in the shot, and also a couple where they are completely out of frame. Most buyers would want to see how huge the actual space is, and taking the furniture out will make the property seem bigger than what it really is.
If you need the furniture and you do not want to take it out and put it again in their respective places right after, then have a professional edit it all out for you instead. This will take a little bit of work and time, but it definitely is a lot easier than moving a lot of furniture around.
The most important bit here is that you should have the right equipment to take high-quality photos of your property. A professional photographer can help you design your property so it’d look good in photos, so go ahead and ask for their help!
