Preparing Your Property
Preparation Of Your Property
Preparation for photography is one of the most important aspects of the photography process to be successful. Make sure the area is well organized and shows an inviting room where your guests can visualize themselves living for the next several months. Now pay attention to the details like smoothing out bedding and removing unsightly electrical cords that could detract from the overall presentation.
Every room has a key element that you will want to feature prominently in your photos. Rearranging objects in the room is a great way to attract your audience's eyes to these components. For Example: Simply placing bright objects (like a red vase) on these key elements (fireplaces, stairs and counter tops, etc) will make them stand out from other objects in the room and will make your photos more memorable to potential renters.
Take Photos Outside
Don't forget outside and the neighborhood. The outside is very important and should not be neglected. In fact, most property listings choose the exterior photo as their primary marketing photo. Help potential renters visualize your property’s setting by shooting outside features of your property during the last hours of sunlight to help bring in rich colors resulting in a spectacular photo. Be sure to take photos of all your properties amenities and surrounding features that first inspired you to purchase the property.
Nice Photography = Bookings
The more photos you have the more excited people will be to browse through your property. People like to look at photos and are reluctant to read as much. A picture is worth a 1000 words so take photos of every feature and try not to shoot the same thing too many times. Our goal is to give your potential tenants enough visual representation of your rental property to allow them to make their decision about renting your property right there. Lastly, most people book their corporate housing rental site unseen so giving the best presentation of your property will result in people making your property their corporate home.
