3 Crucial Tips For Better Real Estate Photography

I just had the opportunity to help my friends photograph their home. The great thing about this project is that their neighbor’s home, which is attached to their townhouse, is for sale too. I went on to www.realtor.com to check out the competition and thought it would be a great idea to create a video on techniques for taking better photos. These 3 tips can be used by almost anyone as you don’t need a special camera (most likely) to adjust these settings. Simple, easy, yet highly effective for instantly improving your photography.

Check out the sample below as it’s the exact same model townhouse. Please share/forward/tweet/+1 this post to as many friends as possible to help all real estate agents take better photos….that is if they don’t hire a pro ;-)

    Hi Steve,

    Great video. I just finished a new blog post about improving property photography (I am a landlord and amateur photographer).

    Maybe you could mention it:

    I cover the tripod and other basics tips just as usual manual settings.

    I don’t cover the camera settings in details like you did.

    Maybe I should embeds your video on my blog. Is that possible?

  2. Great article! I think that the photographs can make or break the sale of a home. It’s amazing at the amount of actual “crappy” photos that I have seen in our local MLS.

    Without question real estate photography can make or break you as a Realtor. Not only proving good photography but lots of it. This is an area where lots of Realtors could improve.

    In the pictures you took, the colors are different. It’s easier to take warm pictures of a room that has tan colored walls and more brown wood furniture than the ones of different rooms that were painted with more whites. It’s not really representative of the difference between what you did and what the original photographer did.
