Tips To Click Better Photos For Your Rental Listings

by Administrator 13. September 2017 08:54

Once you have written the perfect description of your rental home on the listing website, it is time to shift your focus on uploading the best possible photographs. Well-clicked pictures are more likely to attract prospective tenants who nowadays look up on the listing websites before actually making an effort to visit the property. Here are some useful tips that can help you click better photos for your rental listings:

  • Have The Right Equipment: It is not necessary to invest in a hi-end camera for photographing your home. Even your cell phone camera will work well if it offers picture clarity and flash option. Always make sure to clean the camera lens before taking pictures as nobody likes blurred photos.
  • Have Adequate Lighting: Have natural lighting in your home as it brings out some of the best pictures. Open all the curtains and blinds and shoot your pictures during the day to take advantage of natural light. Turn on all the lights in your rental property and use camera flash, if required.
  • Use The Correct Angle: You need to have a complete view of the room of which you are planning to take pictures. Ensure that your camera is placed at the right angle to capture optimum photographs. Don’t shoot from an extremely low angle and always use the wide angle carefully, particularly when you are taking the pictures of your kitchen.
  • Get Various Perspectives: You cannot highlight all the good features of individual rooms in a single picture. Every prospective tenant has his own liking and disliking that needs to be catered to. For instance, a certain tenant might like the idea of a chandelier in the living room, while the other would be enticed by the fireplace. Therefore, always take pictures from different perspectives to highlight individual features in all the rooms.
  • Consider The Mirrors: While clicking pictures, you need to ensure that the camera flash is not showing up in the mirrors. Not taking care of this aspect can completely ruin your photographs. Always position yourself at an angle where you are not in front of the mirror. You can also adjust the direction of the flash so as to avoid seeing its flare across the mirror.
  • Arrange The Furniture Well: A well-furnished home will produce the best images that can be put online on the rental listing websites. Arrange the furniture in an attractive manner and also shoot from different perspectives. Make the rooms look inviting by creating open spaces. Do not overcrowd your home with too many furniture items as it gives a congested appearance in the photographs.
