Selling any home in today’s real estate market means posting your home online. Every type of home should be marketed on the web to get the greatest exposure. And in this day and age, that means your home should be presented with high-quality photos that showcase your property in the best light possible.
When it comes to taking pictures of real estate, there are many tricks of the trade that professional photographers use to make homes look appealing to buyers whom are searching for homes on the Internet.
- Don’t take exterior photos in the middle of the day the sunlight is harsh and too bright. Instead, take pictures in the morning or late afternoon when the natural light will cast a glow over your home.
- Do pay attention to the little details. Details such as crooked wall art or unmade beds take only a second to correct before taking a photo and make a world of difference to how your home looks to potential buyers.
- Don’t take wide-angle photos. Well thought out rooms or interestingly framed snapshots do better justice than a long view that distorts the true dimensions of the space.
- Do think about perspective. You may need to adjust furniture to maintain a realistic appearance of the room and keep things in proportion.
- Don’t allow clutter into your shot. There should not be any junk piles, excessive personal keepsakes or other disorderly messes lying around. You want the home to appear tidy and clean, so they can imagine living in the space themselves.
