Can you afford not to use professional photography for marketing a property?

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. That first visual impression of a home for sale is absolutely essential to driving and maintaining interest in the property and ensuring the maximum sale price is achieved.

In today’s market, buyers have very high visual expectations, short attention spans, and they require clear information instantly. Research shows that 90% of homebuyers now search online and on their mobiles, because of this photography is not just an important element of property marketing; it’s now the most essential one.

Online listings with professional photography generate an average of 61% more page views than their point-and-click counterparts. Nearly 45% of houses advertised with professional images sell for above their asking price whereas the figure drops to just 9% with point and click low quality images. These statistics enforce my belief that in order to display a property in the best way possible, and maximise its sale price, professional photography must be used.


As a professional I not only use specialist high end equipment I will also enhance images with sophisticated editing software to draw out every last bit of quality ensuring the property stands out from the dull, poorly presented images often used by some agents.

In Harrogate the average house price is now over £300K, a small investment of just 0.05% of this price on professional photography can potentially add many thousands to the price achieved and result in a quicker sale allowing clients the opportunity to move to their next home before someone else does. This adds financial benefit to both the vendor and agent.

Effectively my fee is returned several times over !


Unfortunately some estate agents are still content to use images taken by staff with a point-and-click camera’s. Due to the equipment limitations, these cameras are often incapable of capturing the true nature of a property ultimately costing viewings and a quick high value sale!

Bright, colourful and sharp images will grab people’s attention whether online or in print and help sell property quickly and for the highest price


My package includes internal images of all rooms, external images and elevated views of both front and back of house and garden.

All images fully processed and formatted ready for use in just 24hrs with full liaison with web and printing companies.


High quality property images used in an agent’s portfolio really showcase the business and attract new clients

Letting a photographer capture, process and deal with the admin of property images allows agent’s to free up time and focus on running the business.

Tips for preparing your property

  • Remove bins, papers, magazines, towels, toothbrushes and other every-day items from out of view (also move items such as wheelie bins out of sight)
  • Make sure underneath beds are all tidy and free from clutter
  • Clean windows and open curtains to allow as much natural light into rooms as possible
  • Make sure all the lighting works if possible,it adds ambience and cosiness to your photos
  • If you have any spare bedrooms that you don’t usually use make the beds and tidy to make use of the extra rooms so it looks appealing and welcoming to prospective buyers
  • Park cars neatly on drive or arrange for them to be away from the house. In Gardens trim bushes and cut grass if possible
