Hi,

We need input from realtors. Do you prefer shaded or unshaded and why?

See larger images at larger images


Pure Pen& Ink - No Shading:

With Shading:


We provide quick-turn house sketches from a photo. Realtors use them for advertising and client gifts.

Our sketches have always been Pen & Ink drawings with shading but some of us prefer no shading because it is cleaner and better for some forms of print advertising.

Which do you prefer?

More examples at GiveAmasterpiece.com

Thank you for your input.

Un-shaded. It looks cleaner & more detail is visible.

Shading "muddies" the view.

(just one gal's opinion smile )

What materials and colors are used on the outside? It may not be this way, but whether its shaded or not kind of puts a look and a thought of the outside in your head. The shaded you could say looks "muddled", but it makes me think of the darker outside look(darker stone ,stucco,etc) which would be what I like as opposed to a much brighter look on the other side. Either way I think looks really good though.

These might be nice AFTER a purchase decision has been made; but prior to that, prospective Buyers want to see the actual home, pimples and all, instead of a doctored up artist's rendition.

Might make nice stationery . . . . after the fact.

I agree if you have a picture of the home I would much rather see that. I assumed this was renderings for a home that wasn't built yet.

Actually this is a home already built. We have always offered the sketches shaded on our website http://giveamasterpiece.com/house-sketches.shtml but wanted to see if there was interest in unshaded.

99% of our orders from realtors are agents buying the house sketch as a client gift. Most of the time has been for the new buyers but we have seen some for sellers who were really attached to their home.

Thanks for the input, I wish more responded. We are looking for any thought you might have.

I love this! Have passed it along to my real estate clients as a great idea for gift giving. And for what it's worth, I prefer the shaded version as a gift...has more depth and is classier to me.
