Real estate photography: what can I expect?
The way your home is presented online is very important these days. The aesthetic appeal of a property is determined by photographs and by the authenticity and atmosphere of the overall presentation. There are a few considerations to keep in mind. Firstly, it’s important that your home looks its best. In addition to obvious tips (making sure it’s clean and tidy), we provide you with a checklist to help you add the finishing touches.
Despite the interior being the most important selling point, the exterior is also worth consideration. On most websites, a photo of the outside of the home is used to attract potential tenants. For this reason, a professional shot of the outside of the home is included by default in all of our packages. Make sure the exterior of your home is clean and tidy and that no parked cars are blocking the view.
The front and back garden should also be well-kept: sweep up any leaves, prune overgrown plants and hedges, and make sure toys and tools are out of sight. Clean windows are another easy way to guarantee a pretty photo of your home.
Good interior photos and a successful viewing have something in common: they both call for a clean home, with extra attention to the bathroom, toilet and kitchen. Make sure things like washing-up brushes, dishcloths and cleaning materials are out of sight. Remember: less is more.
Put away remote controls and make sure personal items such as photos and toiletries are not visible in the photo. All beds should be neatly made. Good light is also important to ensuring the best possible result. Natural light is almost always preferred, but that’s not always possible in the Netherlands. Open the curtains, switch on some lamps, and find the angle with the best light.
Professional real estate photoshoot
We believe that professional photos significantly increase the chance of a quick rental, which is why our Complete and Extra packages include a high-quality photoshoot.
Our photographers know the ins and outs of photographing houses and work with specialised equipment. Using backlights and other techniques, they make even the darkest and smallest rooms camera-ready. ZUID Beheer works with professional in-house photographers who are experts in room lighting and photo editing.
