WE SAY IT AGAIN - Make sure your home looks amazing when people view it.
And given most buyers will view your property for the first time online that means great photographs that show off its best features and gives a potential buyer a great visual experience as they tour through your property on their desktop or device. The key component here is keeping this real and honest so buyers are not disappointed when they come for a physical inspection of your property.
Now your house may not be a million dollar home, but every home has something special – figure it out and show it off, online. We can guarantee your property will be perfectly suited to someone, so stand proud, go global and find them.
Matthew Lowe is our photographer of choice. Matt owns the Open2view franchise in this area, he’s a local lad – born in Opotiki and moved to Whakatane in 2005. In 2010 he was awarded the New Zealand Apprentice of the year in Digital Print Processes from SWUG NZ and top apprentice in Digital Print Processes by PrintNZ.
We involve Matt with the marketing of our properties from the onset of our listing. How the light and shadows of neighbouring properties and plantings interact with a home are considered before we book the photo shoot. Blue sky is most often the preferred background but sometimes twilight and cloudy days are better suited for properties that don’t face north. Patience is often required to wait for the setting to be picture perfect, but so worth it as one chance is often all you’ll get from a buyer.
The number of people who log on in search of a property is only getting larger. You need to capture the eye of as many of these potential buyers as possible.
