Tips For Your Home Photo Shoot


The Internet has changed much of the way the world works.  The same is true when it comes to selling your home.  People can search for homes near and far using the Internet.  Smart sellers know that having quality photographs of your home’s exterior and the interior can help to bring in interested buyers.  The question then becomes, “How do I take good pictures of my home that will make it more appealing to potential buyers?”  Here are some great tips on taking the right pictures.

Prepare for the Photo Shoot

  • Ensure that you have a good camera to take your pictures.  A poor camera’s quality will impact your final product
  • Stage your home –
    • Clean
    • Eliminate clutter
    • Add little accents, like fresh flowers to liven a room up

During the Photo Shoot

  • Try to use natural lighting rather than flashbulbs
  • Take a large number of photographs from a variety of angles, inside and out
    • Think of the pictures you would like to see of any homes that you are interested in buying
    • Look for photographs with angles that naturally make the rooms look spacious
    • Choose photographs that showcase the best features of your home
    • Be sure that the photographs used accurately depict your home as nothing will turn a buyer off quicker than feeling as though they were catfished.

After the Photo Shoot

  • Use a free photo editing software when necessary to crop pictures or fix other issues
  • Write up a listing that will showcase your home just as nicely as the pictures

The phrase that a picture is worth a thousand words can be very accurate when it comes to selling your home.  Following these tips and tricks can help get you on the path to a quick sale of your home.
