Creative and Bold Marketing: Standing Out in the Property Market

In today’s competitive property market, property agents need creative and bold marketing strategies to make their listings stand out. One innovative approach gaining popularity is the use of high-dynamic-range (HDR) photography, drone photography, and video to showcase properties. These visual media not only capture a property’s features in an eye-catching way but also allow potential buyers to virtually tour homes at their convenience.

What is HDR Photography?

HDR, short for high-dynamic-range, is a photographic technique that combines multiple exposures of the same image to create a final composite with a wider range of light and detail. Conventional photos struggle to capture the expansive luminance range in real-world scenes. In contrast, HDR photography reveals nuances invisible to the naked eye, from the deepest shadows under a deck to the brightest highlights in sunny rooms. The final HDR images showcase both interior and exterior spaces with unprecedented depth, clarity, and color accuracy.

Buyers spend an average of only 7 seconds previewing listings online before moving on. HDR photography’s ability to capture the richness of each room provides online browsers a vivid initial impression of homes. Having high-quality images play a critical role in capturing potential buyers’ interest within that narrow 7-second window.

Drone Photography Rising in Popularity

Like HDR, drone photography provides a unique vantage for showcasing a property. Fitted with high-resolution cameras, drones afford sweeping aerial views of homes and surrounding grounds. Property videos stitched together from drone footage allow buyers to take a virtual flythrough tour of listings and neighborhoods for a big picture perspective.

A recent study showcased that over 60% of the estate agents use drones to market their listings. Industry sites also indicate drones significantly improve the perceived desirability of listings with outdoor features. Properties showcased using drone footage garner 61% more interest on average.

Video Tours Offer Flexibility

Property video tours give potential buyers an in-depth understanding of listings at their own pace. Users scroll through various rooms, getting the experience of physically walking through homes without leaving their couch. Videos also capture lifestyle details that still images lack, like golf course views from patio windows or a flickering fireplace on a winter night.

Property listings with video tours receive 403% more inquiries than similar listings without. A considerable number of potential buyers prefer video tours over visiting model homes in person. This convenience and flexibility let agents reach and engage more buyers. An enhanced ability to pre-screen homes ultimately translates to higher leads and sales.

Final Words 

Leveraging cutting-edge visual media like HDR photography, drone footage, and video tours helps properties stand out in a competitive market while catering to modern buyers’ digital habits. Property agents who embrace these creative, bold marketing strategies give themselves an advantage in attracting more potential purchasers during critical online browsing moments. With more eyes on listings, the result is a higher chance of sales success.
