How to get your home looking its best for its date with an estate agent's camera
A leading estate agent has shared her top tips for making sure your home looks its best for the cameras.
As the market gradually returns to normal in terms of viewing accessibility, the online aspect of the market remains hugely popular, with prospective buyers researching homes they may like to view in person – meaning photos of the property have never been more important.
Housebuilder Miller Homes is no exception, particularly when it comes to unprecedented demand for its homes across the region.
Sarah Whinfrey, Miller regional sales manager, who has almost 20 years’ experience in commissioning new homes photography, said: “This is a remarkable time for the property market and the change in buying behaviours has meant that many of our homes are being viewed or reserved through our online options.
“We do have the luxury of professional photography to bring our homes to life, but homeowners can ensure their photos work hard for them too, to ensure their current home sells quickly, allowing them to
continue on their new home journey.
“When we are dressing our show homes, we always take a moment to think how the room schemes will look when they are photographed and it’s not unusual for our photographers to move a vase, re-
arrange cushions, or open blinds a little more to capture the perfect image and show that our homes are the perfect place to be.
“Having pictures that invite buyers into your home in a digital setting will definitely help in the sales process of your home, and hopefully secure that quick sale so that you are able to make your next move with ease.”
