Samantha’s Weekly Tip – How To Keep Buyers Happy With Single Property Website Photos

Buyers want to see great photos so here are four ways to give them what they want.

What is first thing potential buyers see when they visit your single property Website? That’s right, photos! This is why having crisp, clear images is so important. I will admit one of my biggest work-related pet peeves (not that I have many) is stumbling upon a great site with lots of text, custom links, music … and terrible photos. Since first impressions are so important, here are some guidelines that will help you ensure the photos on your AgencyLogic property site impress potential buyers.

1. Upload multiple images. We recommend uploading at least 10 images, but keep in mind you can upload an unlimited number of photos!
2. Size your photos correctly. The best resolution 1024 x 768 pixels at 72 pixels per inch (800 x 600 is good too, but 1024 x 768 is better). If you upload photos any smaller than that, they could appear fuzzy in certain views, such as the full-screen slideshow.
3. Save your image in the correct format. The best formats are jpg or png. No gifs, please.
4. Use captions. Guide the viewer through the slideshow with photo captions. You can find this feature under the “Photo Upload & Edit” screen.

Note: For tips 2 and 3, you will need to use a photo-editing program. While Photoshop is perhaps the best-known, photo-editing software like Microsoft Office Picture Manager is installed on many computers.
