If you're creating an online listing for your for-sale property, you should make an effort to take the best real estate photos. This way, you can catch the eyes of any internet user who could become potential buyers. For tips on how to improve your real estate photos, read the following post.

How to Take Great Real Estate Photos

  1. First, you should get the right equipment for the job. You may need a camera (in some cases, your phone's camera could work), lighting, reflectors, and more. Learn to use them.
  2. Next up, make sure to prepare the property for the pictures. Remove background clutter, deep clean it, and stage it to look nice.
  3. The lighting is crucial as you take photos. This is why you need to learn to use natural light, artificial indoor light, and professional lighting to your advantage.
  4. You need to find the proper angle for your pictures. Play around with the camera placement until you frame the property in a way that you love.
  5. Of course, it's in your best interest to showcase your property's best features. Ensure you take pictures that highlight how roomy the kitchen is or the amount of sunlight the living room gets.
  6. Avoid engaging in false advertising. Yes, you should take great pictures, but don't make your place seem like something it isn't, as potential buyers can feel deceived later.
  7. Make sure you don't show up in any of your pictures. Be careful with mirrors, windows, and reflective surfaces, so you don't photograph yourself.
  8. If you have time and interest, take many pictures. Work with different light, placement, and elements so you can have many options and choose the best from them.
  9. You may want to edit your pictures a bit (retouch certain areas, correct the colors, and improve the light). Just avoid overdoing it and deceiving users.
  10. Finally, if you don't want to or don't have the time to take the photos, work with a professional real estate photographer to get great results.
