If you are planning on selling your Boston real estate, then the internet can be a valuable tool. Other than hiring a real estate agent to market your house, you can also be proactive and post some ads for the house online as well. And, to make your advertisements more appealing to the public, you need to post a couple of really nice pictures of your property; and the best part of this deal is that you do not need the help of a professional photographer to take the pictures, you can do all of it by yourself.
What photos do you need?
When posting an online ad for your house, there are a couple of important pictures that you need to take. The first is a good picture of the outside of your house, this will show people the curb appeal of the entire house. You should also post photos of all the rooms in the house and of the additional features that it has; you need to put a bit more attention to your kitchen, bathroom, and the master bedroom because those are the rooms that usually make or break the sale of a house.
Resolution is key
Would you be interested in looking at house photos that are blurry and do not contain a lot of detail? No, you won’t. So how can you expect people to take a liking to your house if the pictures of it are grainy and lack detail? Instead of using the camera on your cellphone (although some high end smartphones do have a good camera) to take the pictures, you should use an actual digital camera for taking the pictures, even a regular point-and-shoot that provides a good amount of ppi (pixels per inch) will suffice; you should also use a tripod to prevent the camera from shaking.
Use as much natural lighting as possible
Take the pictures during the brightest time of the day, like mid-morning, and open up your window blinds and curtains to let plenty of the natural sunlight in the room you are taking a picture of. Most house hunters look for houses that have good natural lighting, so you need to showcase this in your pictures.
With these tips, you can be sure that a lot of people will be coming for your open house. Even small things like posting an online advertisement can really help in your efforts of selling your Back Bay Boston real estate fast so you can move on with your life as soon as possible.
