    Hi David,


    I think Rhys is referring to the pricing brackets set by Rightmove. £1350 does not land on one of these brackets but £1400pcm does- basically anyone setting £1400pcm as a minimum budget will see your property in their search results, and likewise if they set it as a maximum figure.

    I would agree with what's been said regarding the photos- it's really important to get nice wide angled shots which show the space. The fireplace in the second image is a lovely feature but the photo doesn't do it justice. If you have the means, it might be worth dressing the property with furniture so there's the 'wow' factor online.


    Kind regards,

    Lucie from Upad

    1. No floorplan - This may put off a lot of tenants as they cannot visualise the layout.

    2. Imagery - As others have pointed out, not enough images. The ones you do have could be improved; they are poorly lit, don't show much of the room, and always best to remove distractions (cables, wires, etc). Use a professional photographer or invest in a good camera with wide-angle lens.

    I normally create floorplans myself using design software like Photoshop, however most agencies use Metropix - This seems to be the industry standard.

    When I say a good camera, it is pretty much dependant on the type of lens you use, and the lighting. To be honest, most recent smartphones now (iPhone 6, Samsung S6 and newer) are almost comparable in terms of quality to a standard SLR out of the box. The advantage an SLR has over the smartphone though is the ability to change lenses. To take interior shots, a wide-angle lens is ideal, as is an external flash. The in-built flash is not good enough. If you own an SLR, see if you can get these two additional accessories and you'll notice the difference in imagery. If this is only a one off however, then maybe the investment into this kit will take a long time to pay off so may be worth outsourcing to someone else, or simply renting the kit when you need it.

    Then of course, there is the post-production. The images may need to be edited/retouched. This is another benefit of using a professional

    You must fork out for professional photos. Your pics look very iphone and hence of limited value. the property is empty now, capitalise on that and get a professional photographer in to showcase it nicely. Google Maison Photography, absolute gem.
