How to Take Great Photos of Your Huntsville Home

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On April 19, 2010

Pictures are one of the most important parts of your home’s marketing plan. They are usually the first thing potential buyers see and can be a deciding factor in whether or not they actually walk through your home.  Here are some photo tips for taking the best possible pictures of your Huntsville home:

  • filmChoose the right time of day. Lighting is the single most important factor in taking a good picture. Shoot on a bright, sunny day. Use natural light, when possible, inside your home. If your Huntsville home has a beautiful view of the sunrise or sunset, take a photo of the view during that time.
  • Prepare your home. Make sure your home is clean and the yard is free of debris. Keep the pets and children out of your photographs. Remember, this is your buyer’s first impression, and they want to see your home.
  • Find the right angle. Don’t take flat pictures, like a dead-on photo of the front of your house from the street or a single shot of the bedroom from the doorway. Angles create definition. Get creative. Stand on chairs or ladders for interesting photographs.
  • Use a digital camera. Digital cameras are surprisingly affordable. You can take as many pictures as you want, choose the best shots, and easily upload or email them without the time-consuming scanning process.
  • Take your time. Don’t rush through the task of photographing your home. Spend time in each room determining its best features. Take several pictures of each room from as many angles as possible. You want the best possible pictures.
