Professional photography is now a standard requirement in property marketing and is proven by various studies to increase enquiries, sell or let homes faster and at a higher price than property marketed without professional photography. Our photographers have trained and been photographing property for many years and know how to get the results that show off your property to its best. We are also pretty good at staging homes too and can help you with this. Check out our Tips & Tricks page for a basic guide on what to do before a photo shoot. We use professional equipment to enable us to quickly get the best results and while on site we can show you the outcome of the photo shoot to adjust the shots to your liking if necessary. Elevated photography using mast’s, planes or drones along with virtual tours can also be supplied. We don’t just shoot residential property though. If you need marketing shots of an area for a brochure or a commercial property we can help with that too. Contact us to discuss your requirement.
Floor Plans are an accepted standard for all property advertising now. People have quickly seen the benefit in recent years of floor plans which enable potential tenants and purchasers to view the property layout and quickly decide if it is suitable without wasting your or their time in viewing the property. We can provide floor plans in a variety of formats including 2D or 3D, as well as photo embedded plans. Where you can hover over an icon on the plan to reveal a photograph taken from that angle. We use the latest technology to create a completed digitally measured plan on site and are able to show our clients the finished plan to check for amendments before we leave a job. SKETCH TO PLAN SERVICE Send us a sketch drawing of your property with the necessary measurements and feature indications (we will guide you on how to do this) and we will convert this into a fully finished digital plan to any of the specifications as mentioned above.
EPC’s have been a requirement to be provided for domestic and commercial properties sold or let since 2008. They are an assessment of the energy efficiency of the building and come with a rating from A to G along with a report of recommendations for improvement. Not all properties need an EPC and there are exemptions for some types, speak to us for advice in this respect. The EPC is valid for 10 years and if you are not sure if you already have one for your property we can check this for you free of charge. MINIMUM ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATING If you are a landlord you should be aware that the ‘minimum level of energy efficiency’ regulation comes into effect from April 2018. This means you can’t grant a new tenancy for your property if it doesn’t meet a minimum EPC rating of band E. We can assist you in making sure your property meets the requirement by producing a draft EPC to assess current recommendations and their individual effect on the rating. Contact us to discuss this further.
