Are you selling your home this spring? Are your photographs or those taken by your agent up to the task? Property photographer Tony Murray reveals his professional secrets to photographing homes and offers his advice on how to take stunning photographs yourself which will show your home in the best possible way to potential buyers.
- Try to isolate house in any exterior shot (see exterior shot gallery here)
- Take your photographs in good weather if at all possible
- Ensure your rooms are tidy and clutter free. (see interior shot gallery here)
- Photograph the best rooms only – you can sometimes show too much!
- Remember you are selling the room and not the things in it. Show the space and any unique architectural details
- Try your best to avoid anything which may be seasonal; Christmas or Halloween decorations, even daffodils suggest a specific time of year. Having said that having a seasonal approach can work if your property has been on the market for a while. For example, a property which has been on the market from the spring could be re-launched in the autumn with a fresh approach using autumn colours on exteriors, giving potential buyers the illusion of a property just coming to the market.
