Redstar, forgive my bluntness in advance. I’m only here to help.
There’s a portrait of a model holding up her arm, and then there’s including her armpit.
You’re including the armpit thing.
These shots are dark and dismal, and look desperate. Interior shots always need to be light and bright, even if it means bringing in lighting, just to take picture. At the least, Photoshop some light in there.
- Consider placing a flower arrangement in there someplace, or simply taking a picture of the kitchen, and forget the forlorn living area.
- Consider placing a striped slip cover over that sofa, instead of 80’s depression blue.
- Paint the friggin interior. What’s with all the marks and patches exposed on the wall?
- What’s with the marks on the carpeting?
This unit is not ready to show.
Really? A picture of a worn-out, semen-stained mattress? That’s what you’re selling? Cover that nasty thing with a nice bedspread, or comforter, or ‘anything’ that hides that episode of Breaking Bad.
**** Close the closet doors, drawers, and cupboards …everywhere. Otherwise, it looks like somebody just left in a hurry …for some no-good reason.
Try to create the appearance of someplace they want to live, not settle for.
Here’s an example. And add some decorative (striped) pillow shams. You don’t have to include them in the rent, but you need to present a better value.
Notwithstanding that the lawn is dead, and there’s a black tarp duct taped to the roof, there has to be a better perspective to shoot the exterior from, that includes less surrounding details, instead of a blunt force photo you’d see in a spec brochure.
That is, include/substitute a picture of the huge lawn the kids/family can enjoy, rather than the leak-proned trailer, parked on a broken patio slab.
An old real estate agent’s trick: Dangle a leafy tree branch in front of your camera, so that it shows up in the top left, or top right area of the view finder, when shooting a building. It creates a warmer and more inviting shots of the structure. You can do the same with your shots of the coaches.
I realize that you’re still working on this project, and it is, what it is. However, eventually you’ll want to make everything look uniformly intentional, functional, and appear clean and maintained. That trailer doesn’t do that yet.
The exterior appearance is frankly the most important element of your real estate offer. It’s the first thing people see, and make up their minds over. So, you want to focus on the exterior appearance.
