The quality of the photos and the subject of the photos are very important. When advertising your private sale or private rental online, you will notice that there is one image on page one and the opening sentence of the script. This needs to capture the attention of buyers or tenants. It needs to entice them to look at all the photos and read all of the text which they need to click into to see.
The most redeeming feature of the home or the location should be the subject of image 1. A photo of the outside of a typical 6 pack block of units is not attention-grabbing. Consider a feature internally. It could be beautifully polished timber flooring, a renovated kitchen, a larger than a normal balcony. With online Real Estate advertising, make your main image one that captures this best feature.
Make them want to investigate the property further. A clean inviting swimming pool in the height of summer or equally a burning fire in a cosy living room in the middle of winter would capture their hearts. If the property has a lovely view, have an image of this. It does not have to necessarily have to be a city or water view. A lovely treed suburban view is equally appealing.
Online advertising on Realestate and Domain, with ReDIY, for Private Landlords and Private Sellers is the way to advertise your property yourself. An online advertisement is almost like a first inspection. If they like what they see and read, they will enquire to make a time for a physical inspection. With good quality photos of inviting areas of the property and an informative text, you are halfway there.
When they inspect, they do not want to feel as they have been deceived. Care must be taken to not oversell with the images. Likewise, keeping something back, with the images, will give them the "Wow" factor that you are wanting from them.
Good luck and remember, ReDIY is here with support for DIY Sellers and Landlords, to advertise online if you need us.
