Some things to ponder about property floor plans...

For the sketchers

Technology can be great. It is great. But we believe some things are best done the old fashioned way. Creating property floor plans is one of them. While there are tons of clever smartphone, tablet and desktop apps out there to help you create a digital floor plan, whenever we’ve tried using them to show the correct layout of a property, they just seem a bit fiddly, and on the whole, not great!

AutoCAD

Now of course, we’re not for a second suggesting you upload a wobbly-lined, illegible, hand-drawn abomination of a property floor plan sketch to Rightmove… enter AutoCAD! Our experienced team use this professional software to transform your sketch into digital form. We create branded floor plans in just a few hours with customisation options Tim Westwood would’ve got very excited about (Pimp My Ride anyone?)

Metropix

Metropix is a popular online floor plan creation tool used by tons of agents. If you don’t know how it works, it has a drag and drop style interface that you use to create your floor plan. It is essentially a watered-down AutoCAD. You can also select ‘common’ property types from a library and tweak ’em to look like yours.

If you do know what Metropix is, you may understand why so many agents get frustrated by the time they spend dragging and clicking when they should be out doing proper estate agent work! That’s why, since we began producing floor plans for estate agents and domestic energy assessors in 2017, hundreds of Metropix users have come to Elements asking if we can create floorplans in a similar style to Metropix – yes we can!

Floor plan statistics

Are you an estate or letting agent who isn’t sure if floor plans are really all that important in your property listings? These floor plan statistics may sway you. Rightmove asked 10,000 people if they would instruct an agent who didn’t offer a floor plan as part of their service, over half these people said no, they would not be instructing them. The same study also found that vendors, 78% of them to be precise, rate the importance of having a floor plan when selling a property as ‘7 out of 10’ or higher.

The key thing to consider is, will having a floor plan increase viewings? Rightmove say that property listings with floor plans generally receive up to 30% more interest than those without and that around two-thirds of listings on their portal now include a floor plan. So, yes, they do.

Floor plans for rental properties

We’ve always found a big disconnect between estate agents and letting agents when it comes to their perceived importance of floor plans. Maybe it’s because budgets are tighter in rental property listings, but check this out and see if a few quid could be worth the investment – another Rightmove study found that 43% of landlords would not invite an agent to value their home if they did not provide floor plans as standard. We suggest you provide floor plans as standard!

The same research found that tenants ranked the ability to view floor plans as the second most important aspect of a property listing, with a selection of property photos in at the number one spot. According to Metropix, 16% of rental property listings displayed a floor plan (as of 2016). We think this is very low and there is a major opportunity for letting agents to win landlord instructions, simply by providing a floor plan for their property.

Using Elements to convert sketches into floor plans

When it comes to floor plans, we’re here to make your life easier and save you time messing around in software programs when you could be focussing on your core strength – signing up new vendors and doing a great job selling houses! But more than time savings, we’re here to help you stand out from the crowd. We come to work every day, excited to create things that help put you on another level from the agents out there who simply don’t care as much as you do when it comes to the presentation of their listings.

We create floor plans completely custom to you. Choose exactly what to show and what not to show. Tell us your brand colours and we’ll inject those colours to make your plans that little bit more exciting. Send us your logo and we’ll stamp it on the plan. A bespoke floor plan accurately portrays the property layout, helps you acquire more business, and triggers action amongst house hunters.

Floor plans are a valued and often underestimated part of your listing. Make sure you do them right.

  1. We aim for 3 hour turnaround as standard but don’t guarantee it. Actual turnaround times could be quicker or slower depending on the time of day the order is placed, the volume of orders we’re processing on the day and the complexity of the floorplan. Orders placed outside of 9.00pm – 5.30pm GMT will be completed by 9.00am GMT the following day. Turnaround times can also be extended if sketches are unclear and we need clarification from you.
