Having high-quality media is crucial for any real estate agent, but it's especially important for those with a luxury brand.

Our team of professionals knows how to highlight the unique features and characteristics of your properties, creating a sense of excitement and desire in potential buyers. If you choose to do your own photography for your listing then take a look at these tips

  1. Make sure to stage the property before taking photos. This can include decluttering, arranging furniture, and adding pops of colour with decorative items.
     

  2. Use natural light to your advantage. Take photos during the day when there is plenty of natural light coming in through windows and doors.
     

  3. Shoot from a wide angle to show the layout of the space. This can help potential buyers get a feel for the flow of the property.
     

  4. Use a tripod to keep the camera steady and avoid blurry photos.
     

  5. Experiment with different times of day to see how the light affects the look of the property. Early morning and late afternoon can create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
     

  6. Edit the photos to improve the overall look. This can include adjusting the white balance, boosting the contrast, and removing any distractions in the background.
     

  7. Consider hiring a professional photographer to take high-quality photos of the property. This can help make the property stand out and attract more potential buyers.
     

  8. Use a high-quality drone to show the property from a unique perspective and highlight any outdoor features. Just make sure you're following the proper Transport Canada Guidelines and are licenced for your specific drone.
     

  9. Create a virtual property tour using 360-degree photos to give potential buyers a detailed, immersive look at the property.
