Great Photos Reduce Voids
No matter where you are advertising your rooms, great photos get more clicks! Most property photographers don’t ‘get’ HMOs, so why not use a property photographer that owns several HMOs!
Like you, I am a HMO landlord, as well as an experienced and qualified photographer. I understand that voids take a toll on your cashflow. Every day a room is empty, it is costing you money.
Hopefully, you know you need photos when you are advertising your property, although, I still see adverts for properties without photographs and the landlord wonders why the property is not letting, at least, not for a market rate.
Every man and his dog is investing in property these days and especially HMOs. That means there is a lot more competition for the good tenants. You need to be marketing your property well. Badly lit photos of bare mattresses just don’t cut it anymore.
Take a look at the two photos below, if you were a tenant, which one are you more likely to click on?
The photograph on the left is not too bad, I have seen a lot worse being used to advertise properties. However, let’s face it, you are more likely to click on the one on the right.
Quality Property Photographs Are Essential For HMO Landlords
I am not saying that you have to hire me or any other photographer, if you or your letting agent can take great photographs, fantastic! However, the rental market is very competitive right now and you can’t afford to be making the mistake of using average photographs to advertise your property. You spent a fortune on the property and maybe even refurbished it. Mandatory licensing and Section 24 are biting into your profits enough, you need to do all you can to minimise your voids. Great professional photos are an easy and cheap fix. To cut corners on what is possibly the most important part of your marketing is crazy!
Quality photographs for your advertising can help you to reduce your voids. Book your photo shot TODAY!
