SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., June 14, 2011 – Yardi announced today that it has launched Yardi Photography Services to help multifamily property managers market their apartments. Yardi Photography Services provides high-quality, attractive property photos taken by a team of professional photographers.
More than 40 Yardi clients have already engaged Yardi Photography Services to photograph interiors, exteriors and amenities at more than 1,000 communities. The photographs are used in the RENTCafe.com Internet listing service platform and on the clients’ Yardi Portal™ property websites. Along with online placement, property managers may also reproduce the photos in brochures and other print collateral.
“We are very happy with the quality of the photos of our properties taken by Yardi. The pictures present our properties the way that we want prospects to see them,” said Jodie Wade, a project manager for Kirkland, Wash.-based Weidner Apartment Homes. “We plan to use the photos in our print and online marketing efforts and we expect more applicant traffic as a result.”
Yardi photographers consult with property managers to ensure that communities’ selling points are highlighted in the most compelling way. Yardi handles scheduling, photography, post-production and loading into RENTCafe, requiring little additional involvement from community directors and staff. “Clients don’t have to engage multiple vendors to photograph widely dispersed properties or divert staff members from their principal tasks,” said Becky Sanvictores, Yardi vice president of client services.
