Snap It Right: Essential Photography Tips for Home Sellers

In an era where the first viewing is often online, the importance of real estate photography in selling your home cannot be overstated. High-quality, engaging photos can dramatically boost interest in your property and help it rise above the competition. Here are some crucial tips to ensure your property photos capture the charm and allure of your home.

1. Harness Natural Light: Natural light is your greatest asset in property photography. It can make rooms appear larger, brighter, and more welcoming. Arrange photo sessions for when your home is bathed in the best light, and let it flood in by opening curtains and blinds.

2. Tidy Up and Make It Impersonal: Prior to photographing, tidy each room and remove personal items such as family photos and mementos. You want potential buyers to imagine themselves in the space, and personal items can divert their attention.

3. Spotlight Unique Features: Concentrate on the unique selling points of your home. Whether it’s a roomy kitchen, a snug fireplace, or a breath-taking view, ensure these features are prominently and attractively displayed in your photos.

4. Illustrate the Home’s Flow: Aim to photograph a natural and logical progression through the house. This involves capturing the layout in a way that is intuitive to viewers, aiding them in understanding the home’s layout and how rooms interconnect.

5. Mind the Composition: Composition is key in property photography. Apply the rule of thirds for a balanced photo and experiment with different angles to discover the most flattering views for each room.

6. Remember the Exterior: The exterior of your home is equally important as the interior. Capture photos of the front and back of the home, the garden, and any unique outdoor features like patios or swimming pools.

7. Think About Professional Assistance: While DIY photography is an option, employing a professional property photographer can make a significant impact. They possess the skills, equipment, and experience to present your home in the most favourable light.

By adhering to these tips, you can create a striking visual portrayal of your home that attracts buyers and paves the way for a successful sale. Remember, in property sales, a picture is worth more than a thousand words – it could be worth a successful sale.

Finding a mortgage

Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you’re going to have to get a mortgage. It’s a loan secured against the property which means if you can’t meet the repayments the lender may repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.

The better you understand mortgages and everything to do with them, the better armed you will be to get the very best deal. With MMR in place, you’ll need to review your finances themselves before approaching possible lenders to see whether you can afford the monthly payments now and if interest rates go up, which they will…

What is MMR?

When it comes to finding a mortgage you have several options: mortgage brokers, individual banks or searching online. Again, it’s important to do your research. Searching online first, gives you a good idea of what’s available, but an independent mortgage broker can provide a more in-depth search and help you through the process. Being independent holds great value as they are not bias to any particular lenders or deals, they will give you their honest opinion and take away the stress of working your way through the mortgage market, they work for you to find you the best package to suit your requirements.
