Presenting Your Property

First Impressions

A good first impression is the most important thing to a buyer – at the end of the day it’s going to be their new home. That is why we at David Key take great pride in ensuring your property is presented in the best possible light. For every property we send out a team of professional photographers, floor planners and virtual tour broadcasters.

These photographs, together with virtual tours, colour floor plans and a location map, are then used in our extensive marketing program which is bespoke and tailored to your needs. In addition your property will be showcased in our magazine, the local paper, local media as well as being displayed 24/7 on our prominent LED displays.

Light and Space

Windows look best when they are cleaned (inside and out) and covered as little as possible. Net curtains should be taken down or slid to the side and blinds should be lifted. If possible, position the sofa against a wall. This emphasises the size of the room and creates a more attractive photo. Make sure furniture or items stored behind doors do not prevent them from opening properly. This allows space for the photographer to stand back and frame more of the room. It is particularly important that the two most attractive rooms are well prepared for the 360 degree virtual tour.
