A picture’s worth a thousand words! And when it comes to real estate, the pictures of your home could be worth thousands of dollars. Because most of today’s homebuyers start their home search online, when you’re trying to sell your home, it’s essential you have some absolutely stunning listing photos.

But how do you get listing photos that are sure to impress? BHURDinUtah’s got you covered with the photo tips you need to get those perfect pics! 


First and foremost, you MUST hire a professional photographer. In fact, it’s proven that listings with professional real estate photography sell more quickly and for more money than those that don’t. Why? Check out the following 3 reasons. 

  1. Picture Quality - A pro has better equipment. A common mistake we notice when we look at pictures of a house for sale is poor picture quality. Yes, it’s true that the cameras on our phones have been getting better and better, but when it comes to selling your house, your most valuable asset, cell phone pictures just won’t cut it. 
  1. Highlight the Selling Points - A professional photographer knows how to capture your home’s best features and those features then become selling points! If your home has unique architectural details, a killer theater room, or other features that would impress buyers, a pro will know how to take pictures that show it off.
  1. Avoid rookie mistakes - A body in the background reflected in the mirror, photos that don’t take up the entire frame, awkward angles, a dark interior shot are all easily avoided when you are working with a professional photographer who knows what they are doing. 

Your listing photos should inspire buyers to take action -- to tour the property and consider making an offer! Listing photos are a huge part of marketing your home, so they're worth the investment. Trust us.
