When you’ve decided to sell your home, it’s vital to make the right impression with would-be buyers. Make your home look good with the right pictures!
Why You Need Great Photos
Not only do buyers need good photos, so do potential buyers. Consumers want to make quick decisions when shopping for homes, so buyers will pay a premium if they like your home’s photo. If they don’t like your photos, they may not want to make an offer based on the home’s actual value. This means you lose out on the sale.
Taking good photos of your home before you list your home will be one of the best things you do to get top dollar for it. When buyers see your property through photos, they know exactly what they’re looking at. If they want to see your living room, they’ll know exactly what to expect. Before you put your house on the market, spend a few hours and photograph your home with care.
Choosing the Right Photographer
I’ve used numerous real estate photography and decorators, and each has a very different perspective and way of doing things. Before hiring someone, ask yourself some important questions:
- What kind of photos do you want?
- How big of a job do you want the pictures to be?
- How many rooms are in your home?
- How many pictures do you think you’ll need?
Some photos turn out better than others, and this can be due to a number of factors: lighting, photography, and even the attitude of the photographer.
The Best Time of Day for Interior Shots
When the sun shines, you’ll get good lighting. When the light is bad during an overcast day, your pictures may look drab and depressing.
If you choose to take pictures yourself, think about using a tripod or other method of keeping the camera steady. You can buy a cheap one for around $20. You’ll need to take pictures on different days to get the best lighting. They will have to be taken at or near sunset and sunrise, which is different for every part of the world.

The Best Time of Day for Exterior Shots
It’s important to consider the best time to photograph your home. You’ll have good natural lighting throughout the day, but at night, you may not get the best lighting. For photos of your interior, I recommend the morning or the late afternoon because the sun is usually at a good angle.
Take a look at the area that you want to shoot outside your house and take a quick survey of your outdoor space. What will your home look like in a different season or with different lighting? Now, what can you do to make the photo look just as great? Does your home have a particular feature or an architectural feature you want to highlight? In an outdoor living room photo, you can use a long, narrow stone wall for a dramatic background. Photograph your home like you would photograph pieces for an art exhibit!
