8 Real Estate Photography Tips

August 25th, 2014 · 4 Comments

1.  You might be upside down with your home’s value, but don’t prove it with the photo!

2.  The only lines you should see are lines of people to visit your house.

3.  Close-up photos never tell the true story.

4.  Your reflection in the bathroom mirrors reflects your photography skills.

The four faces of Eve?  She’s reflected four times in this photo.  At least we know she’s not a vampire.

5. Fish eye photos creep out buyers.  Is that mold on the walls or wallpaper?

6. Don’t take a photo from behind glass.

7.  Take photos to show off the features of the house or of a room, not of personal items.  It’s doubtful those towels are worth more than $3.

8.  Watch out for shadows!
