Take Better Photos of Your Home With These Helpful Tips!

When selling your home, it’s important for you to take plenty of attractive photos you can post online. These photos should display your home in its best light, showcasing attractive features that might be appealing to prospective buyers. Unattractive photos, on the other hand, can drive buyers away before they even have a chance to take a walkthrough. Today we’ll look at a few tips to help you take great photos that will be sure to generate interest from buyers. 

Use the right equipment.
You don’t necessarily need to run out and invest in expensive studio equipment that you’re only going to use once, but you should at least something other than your cell phone camera. Cell phones take decent photos, but they won’t capture the hi-res images you need. Instead, consider borrowing a decent camera from someone you know or ask your real estate agent for help obtaining equipment. You might even want to consider hiring a local photographer to take shots for you since that investment could very well pay off in the end. 

Clean up clutter.

When people scroll through the photos of your home, they shouldn’t be distracted by stray household items cluttering up the frame. Clean and stage your home in advance before you start shooting photos.

Use natural light to your advantage.

When taking photos of your home’s interior, you want it to be as bright as possible. Rather than using artificial light, wait for a nice sunny day when you get plenty of natural light through your windows. This will brighten up your photos and put your home into the best possible light, both literally and figuratively.
