Picture it: You have the perfect apartment that has just been remodeled, updated, and is simply perfect. The only thing that is missing now is someone to enjoy it enough to want to pay you for it and move in. You post about this place in the newspaper, online, around town, and anywhere else that you can think of. There's just one problem. No one seems to be calling about this perfect location. You just can't figure it out. Why doesn't anyone want this flawless property? Don't they understand how incredible this apartment is? Well, there's just one problem with all of your posts about this place: you didn't post any pictures.
Pictures are extremely important when it comes to renting your apartment out. Many people will not look at a listing online if there are no available pictures and honestly that isn't surprising. After all, would you want to drive all the way out to your apartment without knowing if it was a beautiful place or a dump? I can tell you that I certainly wouldn't. Getting pictures of your rental property is something that you need to make sure to do before you get ready to list it anywhere.
The great thing is that now cameras are everywhere. Digital cameras can connect directly to your computer so you don't need to wait a week only to find out the picture didn't come out right anyway. You can upload the image instantly and even edit it to show the best parts of whatever was in frame. Even most of our phones now have cameras that you can take pictures with that are good enough to post. It has literally never been easier to show people how incredible your property is without them having to get dressed.
Here at Talley, we cannot stress enough just how important putting pictures up of your apartment can be. It truly is the difference between someone looking at your apartment or looking at the next. Even many websites have a filter so it only shows listings that have photos. Take a couple of good shots of the area and see how big a difference it makes in your hunt for just the right tenant to go with your apartment. We hope everything turns out to be picture perfect for you!
