Do’s of Real Estate Photography

  1. Take a picture from the curb: The front of your house is the first thing the buyer will see. It is crucial to click a perfect picture of this spot as it could be the deciding factor for the buyer.
  2. Open Front Door Trick: While clicking pictures, make sure you open front doors completely. This will give the buyer a wider view of the house and help him/her envision himself/herself entering into it.
  3. Capture selling points: Make sure you include the best sections of the house in your photographs. For instance: Balcony, Backyard, Bathroom, and Kitchen of the house should be beautifully captured.
  4. Architectural Details: It’s hard to capture architectural angles in your photographs. However, getting a hand at the archways, nooks, and crannies can surely amp up your selling game.

Don’ts of Real Estate Photography

  • Avoid using Phone Cameras: Despite the fact that phone cameras these days are of excellent quality, they still can’t capture pictures like DSLR camera. It’s always better to hire a professional photographer for completing the task.
  • No mirrors: Be careful to check your surroundings before you start with the process. You surely don’t want to capture your reflection. That can be a complete turn off for the buyer.
  • Remove Personal items: Remove all personal items such as family photographs, DIY portraits or anything that can make it hard for the buyer to envision himself/herself in the house.
  • No vehicles in the driveway: It is extremely important to get the perfect shot of the front view of the house. Parking a vehicle in front of the house will block the buyers’ view.


We hope that the above-listed pointers help you attract more buyers and you get the best deal soon. Good Luck!
