Professional pictures and virtual tours of the property must be visually accurate, and corresponding to reality, the same reality prospective Buyers will experience during their walk through. Decorating interior or exterior with exotic items may be attractive in other types of the industry. Still, in the real estate world, we prefer to stick with an actual and realistic look. Here are some basics that keep photo shooting simple yet great looking:
Property needs to be clean and tidy, pointing out the interior floor space and exterior area. The kitchen countertop needs to be cleaned, sink without dishes, dining table free from any items. Remove all personal and hygiene products from the bathroom, empty shelves, remove towels, hide all cosmetics. Any private pictures or religious symbols should be removed from the interiors. We prefer neutral sheet covers over the bedding. Sofas, armchairs, and seats should be without blankets and protective coatings.
Pay attention to interior and exterior lights, replace bulbs if necessary. Show natural light as much as you can – open blinds, roll up curtains, clean windows. The exterior and surrounding area should be nicely maintained, mow the lawn, care for the garden, fill up and clean the swimming pool.
Expat expert professional photographer takes entire photo shooting and virtual touring. We use dedicated wide-angle lenses and high definition cameras. For virtual tours, we use a 360-degree special camera and Matterport software platform for creating sophisticated 3D imagery. All pictures are oriented horizontally (panorama) as this is the industry standard and works best with listings across all platforms and advertising channels.
Expat expert Agent will arrange a photo shooting date and confirm with Seller. For the most impressive and representative result and concerning the best natural light conditions and weather forecast, we will determine and suggest a preferred time window.
