There’s a massive demand for residential rendering, and there’s no surprise as to why. As a real estate developer or agent, there`s plenty of potential stumbling blocks when it comes to selling and marketing a property successfully before a project has been completed, and you can be left with a mountain to climb if all you have is 2d plans and black and white drawings to market your property. For you architects, this can be even tougher, as you have to find a way of appeasing clients and home owners whose expectations can often be mind boggling and aren’t impressed whatsoever by 2D drawings and plans. Due to the huge investment that potential have to make when committing to a home, you can understand why clients can be some demanding, and all of this means is that you have to go the extra mile when it comes to quelling any doubts and making their visions come to fruition, which is where residential architectural rendering can come in handy.
1. Avoid Unnecessary Back & Forth
After the initial excitement and positivity after being hired to sell an unfinished property or design someone`s dream home, now comes the tough task of actually delivering what was promised. You create a design in CAD which in your mind is brilliant and unique, and you’re excited to present this to the client, only to find them disappointed and confused once showing them your drawings. Unable to grasp certain design concepts, the client’s initial excitement may dissipate. There’s a big reason for this, people who aren’t from a design background often have difficulty in interpreting 2d drawings, and you’re relying on them to be able to use your drawings to imagine what their home would look like, which, unsurprisingly, doesn’t always work out. Even worse, the client may imagine a certain design in a certain way only to find themselves displeased with the result once construction has started, meaning that you have to start from scratch. Residential 3d rendering services can be extremely useful in this case, as high quality imagery is a universal language that can be used with all types of people, no matter their professional background. With these images, clients can see exactly what a design/project will look like, meaning that there`s zero room for misinterpretation, and less back and forth.
2. Easy To Make Changes To The Design
It’s extremely rare that an architect will nail a design first time round with zero mistakes and changes, and the process often involves making changes to the design and realizing that particular design concepts that you thought would work aren’t as good as initially expected. A client may be super excited about the idea of having the bedroom, kitchen or front façade looking a particular way, only to discover that these ideas don’t work or look much worse than expected when constructed. What this means is that the architect and client have to expect that there will be certain design aspects that need to be changed, and that there’ll be a certain amount of back of forth.
That being said, this back and forth process can be incredibly inefficient using traditional methods, as it’s often not until late on during the design process or during the construction phase that these mistakes are noticed, after which the process of making changes can be very time consuming and costly. Residential rendering is a great remedy to this as you’re able to get an 100% accurate interpretation of what the project will look like once constructed, meaning that you can identify any poor design ideas and non-feasible elements right at the beginning of the process, and as we know, changing something in 3D is far quicker and easier than doing so during construction.
3. Increase Your Credibility With A Solid Portfolio
When it comes to expanding your clientele, having a high quality and diversified portfolio is going to be key, and the task of getting new clients on board can be a very tough one without a strong portfolio. This task becomes even tougher when you realize that a lot of your projects are under NDA, meaning that you can’t publish them, whilst others are still in progress with no end in sight. All of this means that you’re severely limited when it comes to selling yourself and your design abilities, which can often leave potential clients underwhelmed and reluctant to engage in a working contract with you.
Residential home renderings can really make a difference when it comes to this as you’re not dependent on waiting for years for a project to be completed to be able to use as a sales tool. Not only this, but you can even turn any conceptual ideas you have in mind into a 3d residential rendering, meaning that you can bring your own ideas into fruition without having to depend on clients. With all of this in mind, the task of selling will be much easier.
