Listing Photo Do’s and Don’ts

With listing photos, you only have one shot and a few seconds to make an impression on potential buyers. Having stunning photos could ensure you have a constant supply of interested buyers at your door. Before you take photos, take a look at these do’s and don’ts to ensure you get the perfect snaps.


  • Take a shot from the curb – Keep your curb appeal in mind and make your home look eye-catching and tidy.
  • Welcome visitors – An attractive front door and entryway go a long way in setting the tone for the rest of your house.
  • Capture your home’s selling points that make it stand out from the crowd.
  • Stage each room – Clear the clutter and make that spare bedroom into a proper bedroom or a home office.
  • Take am evening shot with the lights on.


  • Don’t use a fisheye lens – This cool effect is not one for real estate listing pictures.
  • Don’t capture yourself in the mirror.
  • Don’t show off your pets.
  • Don’t show off architectural mistakes or blemishes – The open house and inspection are where the buyer can make note of these imperfections.
