Does Your Agent Take Great Property Photographs?

Perhaps it’s just me, but have you ever taken a close look at some of the local property website’s in Singapore? If so, you must have noticed the shocking quality of property photographs that are submitted by the local real estate agents. In fact, the quality is overwhelmingly dreadful and does nothing to present and market a client’s property in the best possible way to attract a tenant rental or sales enquiry.

In many instances, the property may show the developer’s outdated original artist impression or computer generated image, mostly lifted from the internet. Internal shots, are either completely missing, poorly taken or of another unit altogether. These images are often rinsed and repeated for multiple properties.

In short, the local Singapore property agents seem to consistently fail to present a valuable property for rent or sale in the owner’s best interest and market in the best possible way to attract client enquires.

This should be a simple task that any Singapore property owner should rightfully expect of their agent, particularly considering the large commissions fees that agents are paid.

You could put this down to a general local agent malaise, poor personal quality standards or a simple lack of interest? You be the judge. In our opinion, there is really no excuse for not doing the job well and in the best interest of the client in the first place.
