One Photograph to Sell a Home

The lead photograph can have an enormous effect on the saleability and indeed sale price of a property. It can be true to say that you have one photograph to sell a home.

Only last Thursday I carried the elevated mast through an ash tree and 10 metres of nine foot high ferns to get a good vantage point of this house. Even from this vantage point I need the mast at its full nine metres to see over the ferns and show its fantastic setting.
