One of the most important tools in selling a home is how it looks in photographs online and in brochures. Along with price, pictures that capture your pad in the most appealing way are the first step in getting buyers in the door. If you're using a real estate agent, they're usually pretty adept at photography (or will have someone their broker uses). However, I've been known to use my own pics after being less than impressed with those that my agent took. No matter if you're using a broker or selling your place on your own, use these tips for getting shots that will help make your house a star.
