I often get asked by people who are selling their home, whether they can use their own photos rather than the ones we want to take.
Very often that is because the photos were taken when the garden was in full bloom, or on a particularly nice summer’s day, or something else that left the house looking really “pretty”.
In truth, it is far better to use photos which the estate agent has taken at the time when the house is put up for sale.
Specifically, people looking at RightMove often gauge how long a house has been on the market by the photos. If it’s August, and the photo has a load of daffodils in it, it looks as though the house has been for sale for months.
Also, we take so much care, and use high quality camera equipment to take the photos which we know will convert into viewings. To explain that a little more, each photo we take is designed to give enough away that people want to view the house, and not so much that they feel they don’t need to. It’s a very fine balance and we are skilled in getting that right.
A really sensible solution, if you have photos yourself, is to make them available to people who may be interested in the home and come back for a second visit.
A photograph is often the first thing that someone sees when they are searching for your property on RightMove or other websites. Let our expertise get that right, so that the maximum number of people want to come round to view the house.
