A few months back I read Kristian Lee’s post Dress Your #CRE Listings for Success, and it got me thinking about a simple trick that I use to make my listings look better.
I don’t hire a professional photographer, use a fancy DSLR camera or create the perfect lighting… I just use my iPhone.
If your phone is like mine, you have the ability to take a panorama, and immediately make your listings look better. And the best part is that your phone is (probably) always with you – no more lugging around a DSLR with a wide-angle lens!
As I’m writing this, I’m working remotely from a hotel room in Chicago – see the difference panorama makes (regular/panorama):
I use panorama for listing pictures whenever I need to show an entire room or layout that a “standard” picture just can’t capture.
Above shots are of a data room, while the shots below are of an office suite.
Is this perfect? Absolutely not. Do these pictures look better than what a professional photographer could produce? Of course not. A panorama shot isn’t always needed – don’t overdo it – but in many cases, it looks a lot better than the alternative. Give it a shot, and see what you think – it might just make your listings look better.
