What Photographs Should You Include

If there is enough ‘copy’ we can include ten photos. To efficiently portray your property for sale, at a minimum please send us at least six photographs and you should include:

  1. Frontal view of the home
  2. The kitchen
  3. The living room
  4. The master bedroom
  5. The garden and swimming pool if available
  6. If there is a spectacular view, please include photographs of that view
  7. If you have a map which clearly shows where the property is located, that would also help.

Please try NOT to include photographs with pets in them… You and I may love animals but some buyers are finicky and do not want to see animals in the home they are thinking about buying.

Please DO NOT use the time and date feature on your camera! Few people want to see the dates on your photographs.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us here.
