The Property Fairy
Showing off a property's personality
"I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse" The Godfather
Most videos of properties can be quite clinical, so what I like to do is bring out the personality of a home in order to better communicate what it might be like to live in to a prospective buyer or tenant.
Although in recent times we haven't been able to enjoy all the amenities we have been used to, I always like to include shots of the surrounding area. This provides context and a sense of the wider benefits of living somewhere.
Playful editing and music choices help to give our videos a light-hearted edge that has proven to work time and again, particularly through the challenge of lockdowns!

I always like to make sure that the images feel warm, welcoming and not overly staged.
It's important to take photos from multiple different angles in a room so a prospective buyer or tenant can have an understanding of layout and size.
Unlike many photographers I do not just take images of how I find a property - no left-up loo seats or unmade beds here! If a homeowner or tenant has given their permission, I take the time to tidy-up and reposition furniture if necessary in order to produce the best possible images.

As an optional extra, I can dress a property with a few choice items to help lift the space. These include high quality artificial flowers, throws and scatter cushions.
Properly dressing a bed can make a huge difference to the appearance of a bedroom and a simple throw on an unloved sofa can quickly give a much better impression.
For an additional cost, these items can be hired for the duration of the marketing of the property, so it looks just as good when a prospective buyer or tenant walks through the door.
