The best way for a landlord to showcase hoe stylish or attractive their rental home is with professional photography.

This is an area that has become increasingly important in the property market with vendors desperate to get their property in front of buyers. However, this is also true for the rental market and landlords should look to end

Get ahead with professional photos

When you think about the importance of letting your property and the impact that not letting a rental home can have on a landlord, it is vital that every step is taken to let your home. If you have seen some of the low-standard images of rental accommodation online, you would be forgiven for thinking that many landlords are not too fussed about letting their property!

It is fair to say that hiring a professional photographer to take images of your rental property is another cost to bear when letting property. there are many costs associated with renting property but this is a cost that can be more than justified. The benefits associated with having professional staged and taken images of your property will ensure your property is let faster and often for a higher rental fee.

Therefore, the initial cost in hiring a professional is more than recouped and you can be confident in your actions.

A great image is about more than a great camera

Many people believe that their smartphone camera is good enough to take images of their property. There is no denying that modern smartphones are highly technical devices and many of them have a fantastic camera. There is no problem with the technology that people use but the secret of capturing a great image is about more than just a smart camera.

A professional photographer will stage a room or your property before taking a picture. This will create a sense of style, ensuring you have an image that represents your home in the best possible manner. This will be an image that showcases your home and prospective tenants will stop in their tracks to see more of your home.

A professional photographer with experience in this line of photography will also know what the best features of your home are, and they will take pictures that accentuate these features.

Ideally, you will take images of your home when it is free of tenants. This isn’t always possible but this will provide you with the best chance of capturing your home when it is uncluttered and has been staged to maximise the impact it has.

At Addison Giles, we are pleased to say we have helped many landlords promote their home. The impact that a great image or a set of images can have on prospective tenants is massive. Therefore, if you are serious about letting your home for the best fee and to the best tenants, it is important you take sufficient steps to reach your market.
