Presentation Photos For Residential and Multifamily Real Estate Projects

Too often we don’t spend enough time creating the quality project presentation we should for our projects. One big factor in this is failing to humanize the presentation with photos of the subject matter. For residential and multifamily real estate investment projects and proposals this is in my opinion especially important.

Investors need to comprehend and accept the quality of the investment. Accomplishing this objective is the sum of several factors, but one is the visceral recognition of the reality of the project, the value of the project, the future of the project, and the reasonable expectation of the principal for the investment. Great photos are a big step toward accomplishing this end. Great photos is more than simply picking a few likely buildings and taking photos.

The first consideration is lighting. You want to present a sunny well lit perspective of the scene you are shooting. You don’t want the picture to appear to bright or to show glare. Probably a good morning light or late after noon angle is the best.

Second, you want to offer perspective that is pleasant. Good views of the entry way or photos of the entire building that offer a good view without trying to take in too much. Also, close up photos of particularly attractive items are good as well. Additionally, if you focus on a particular type of construction you want the reader or viewer to capture that idea very clearly as they look at the photos.

Third, your photos should relate to your message. Some photos may be of the surrounding neighborhood for example or of vehicles in the parking lot because this tells the story about the community. Portrayed correctly surrounding area photos build confidence and help create the larger story in the investors mind.

Now that you have the photos, many principals will simply throw up the photos throughout their documents and material with little or no description. Don’t fall into this trap. Instead insert the photos into Powerpoint or some other tool. Resize them consistently. Place descriptive labels in an easy to read attractive conservative font with each photo.

Personally, I like to include the photos as a labeled album in my business plans and then to intersperse key photos in business plans, investor presentations, and other documents to further support the story. Also, the photos may turn out to be a great start on your company website or project website. Investors are really only limited by their imagination regarding the broader range of uses they can find for their photos.

Business Negotiating Techniques

Business negotiating can play an important role in our professional pursuits, the techniques involved can even be of help in our personal lives (outside of the office.) The truth is, we can even be negotiating without realizing it – it is an action that we do naturally from day to day. Perhaps you went to the mall over the weekend and asked for a reduction in the selling price of a faulty item, maybe you had some ideas of how to change something in your office.

Negotiating doesn’t have to be difficult, but how effortless it can or can’t be, depends on a few factors. One of the main factors will be how much is at stake and another factor that can make it a challenge is your mood – if you are upset or angry then negotiating can seem like the highest of hurdles. If you have low self esteem and the person or group you are negotiating with is full of confidence – this might be greatly intimidating for you.

The purpose of this article is to reveal some of the secrets to good business negotiation skills so that you can use them as you need – when in confrontation with colleagues or customers – or even with the big boss! You might also find that the advice here will be of use in more personal situations too.

Introduction To Negotiating

Simply put, negotiating is when two or more persons/groups will discuss their different needs and aim to come to a solution that satisfies either party. Negotiating is not a process that sticks to a set of guidelines and each case could be very variable when compared to the one before or to the next. How the situation develops will depend on the people involved and what skills/ideas/attitudes they have. What negotiating isn’t, is a conflict. Too many make negotiating faults by believing they are under pressure to get the results swayed towards their ideas – using intimidation, force and even anger. Ideally, all involved should accept that the outcome will be favorable to both sides.

Negotiating Techniques

Let us have a look in more detail, the potentially successful business techniques of negotiation. First, you should use appropriate questioning to find out what the other parties needs are and what they dislike about your need and want for change. Take time to make sure that you fully understand their needs and if you must, use what we call ‘listening responses’ to clarify the situation. An example might be “If I am correct, you want to ensure that…”

Following this, it will be time to share your concerns and ideas. Don’t make the fault of only declaring what you want, but always back it up with reasons as to why you want it a certain way. You have to give the other party a chance to understand your reasoning. You could discover through this, that both parties are aiming for the same goal or outcome, but their approach to reaching that goal is different.

Have your plan B’s and C’s at hand should you require them. Negotiating is all about discussing possible means of coming to an agreement, so you do need to be little flexible and have your options worked out beforehand. Take this one step further by detecting what the response of the other party might be and the solution to their responses.

Never allow anger or intimidation to get out of hand in business negotiating – you don’t want to upset others. You are looking at possible solutions to make everyone involved reach satisfaction with the outcome. By no means should you try to intimidate others into thinking that their needs are questionable or wrong in the first place.
