Letting out your property: Photos and floor plans
Posted on 13th May 2022
The estate agent will need photos of the property, and also floor plans for what each room looks like, and it’s measurements.
When it comes to taking photos, firstly they'll need a good overview of the property as a whole.
This would from outside and inside the property.
If you're preparing the property yourself, make sure all areas are tidy and that there's no clutter lying around,
so any potential new tenants can get a better idea of how they would have it and if it suits them.
Estate agents will take photos of both inside and outside the property - so make sure you're aware of that they may come to your place for this!
Furthermore, if there's a garden area or anything else attached to the house which would be useful in showing off what the property looks like as a whole, then it might also need photo documentation too.
Once the estate agent has taken photos of all important areas, they'll then need to get a good idea of what each room looks like.
This is where floor plans come in useful for them! If you're preparing the property for an estate agent, make sure all furniture is in the room that it would usually be placed in - this will give them a good indication of size and also how the room could look when furnished.
Remember, they might not always take photos of every room in the house, so it's always handy for them to have a floor plan to refer back to.
For photos, you can prepare the property by making sure it is looking it's best.
If you're doing this yourself, then the estate agent will likely appreciate well-tidied rooms and also well-kept gardens or outside areas.
Easy ways you can make a room look alot better are:
-Coat of fresh paint, preferably white to open the room up more.
-Any repairs that need fixing, sort them as this may put people off!
-New carpets or flooring can really change the look of a room.
-Remove any personal belongings (ornaments, photos etc) as this will give people an idea that they can't make it their own straight away and also makes it harder for them to visualise living in the space.
Hopefully, this blog post has given you a better understanding of what the estate agent will need from you when letting out your property.
