Professional Photos Rent Las Vegas Homes

Las Vegas rental homes marketed with professional photography gain more exposure and rent faster. There are only a few seconds to grab a potential Renter’s attention online. Professional photos rent Las Vegas homes faster – don’t miss that window of opportunity.


Have you ever viewed an ad for a rental property and were immediately turned off because of the awful, quickly shot, low-quality pictures? The majority of rental advertising photos online were obviously taken with a cell phone, usually at weird angles, in poorly lit rooms, or of awkward things (toilet seat up, anyone?).


In addition, an online ad is usually the first time a prospective Tenant is introduced to a home, so it’s logical to make a good impression.


Taking time and putting a little effort into the advertising pictures will help accomplish that goal. Professional photos rent Las Vegas homes faster.

Example of a professionally edited photo:

  1. Do you notice the sky is blue with no clouds? 
  2. Do you notice the driveway is completely clean?
  3. Do you notice the grass is a vibrant green with solid color tones?

This professionally advertising photo should entice prospective renters to schedule an appointment to view the rental home and apply.

Twilight Advertising Photos

Twilight. It is the most beautiful time of day which helps the property stand out from the crowd. Showing renters the landscaping lighting with a pool or spa sets the mood and makes that house into their home.

As a residential property manager Rice Real Estate incorporates twilight photos into our marketing and advertising. It can definitly add an element of pizazz to a rental listing and help rent a house faster! This is especially true when a home has a gorgeous view of the Las Vegas Strip.
