If youíre planning on putting your home up for sale itís vitally important to make sure you have quality photos that will stand out online. However, if youíre on a budget and donít want to spend extra on a professional photographer you still have options.

There are many ways to take great photos of your home. If you have an amateur photographer in the family, they might be more than happy to stop by and take some photos for you.

If you have a relatively new smartphone, you might be surprised to find that it could have the capability to take great photos and videos of the outside of your home.

In this article, weíre going to cover some simple tips to help you take great photographs of your yard.  

Setting the scene

Before you start snapping photos, itís a good idea to make sure your yard, driveway, and the exterior of your home are in prime condition.

That means mowing the lawn, freshening up mulch, and trimming hedges. It could even be a good idea to sweep the driveway and power wash your siding.

Picking the right day

If youíre taking your own photos then you have one big advantage, you can make sure you take them on a nice, sunny day and use the lighting to your advantage.

To get photos on each side of your home, come back when the sun is fully illuminating the side of your home youíre photographing.

Photography tips

If youíre shooting on a smartphone, make sure you have your camera settings adjusted to the highest quality. Similarly, if you have the option, turn on HDR for taking photos outside. HDR, or high dynamic range, photography is essentially a way of combining multiple images of the same frame to get the best results.

What that means is that darker spots of the image will be brightened and spots that are too bright (like the sky) will be darkened, creating a well-balanced image. The best part is the camera does all of this work for you.

Basic rules for great photos

  • Take several photos of each spot. You donít have to worry about running out of film, so thereís no need to be conservative with the number of photos you take.

  • Think about framing. When looking at your phone right before you take the shot, look at all four corners of the frame. If you can move slightly to cut out distractions, do so.

  • Use the photos that matter most. When it comes to uploading your photos, thereís no need for several photos of the same area.

  • Try your hand at image adjustments. Most smartphones let you change adjustments like brightness, contrast, saturation, cropping, and more. Itís easy to overdo it with things like saturation, so try to make your photos look as natural as possible.

If youíre hunting for a new home and have come across one that fits all of your requirements and more, it can seem like the only thing you can do is make an offer and wait.

However, your first choice could also be another buyerís dream home. And, if a higher bid isnít feasible, you have to find other ways to win over the seller. One way this can be achieved is through writing a letter to the owner of the home.

If youíre bidding on your dream home, writing a letter the the owner can be anxiety inducing. Choosing what to reveal and finding the right words can be scary, even for the most seasoned writer.

So, in this article weíre going to walk you through writing a letter to a seller to give you the best possible chance of winning the bid for a new home.

Tell them why you love their home

If youíve fallen in love with certain aspects of the home, thereís a good chance the sellers did too. Be personal in your explanations. Rather than just say you love the location, mention that it is a perfect distance to walk to the playground with your children or pets. This will help buyers better understand you and your story.

If you have family who lives nearby, or if the home has features that can greatly improve the life of you, your family, or your pets, be sure to mention this in the letter as well.

Donít press or plead, just be polite

It can seem desperate and off-putting to receive a letter pleading with you to sell your home to someone. So, when youíre writing your letter and you come to the end, simply thank the buyer for their time and for reading, compliment them once more, and wish them luck in their new home.

Revise and review

It can be tempting to send your letter immediately after writing it, especially if writing is you donít like writing in general. However, itís always a good idea to revise. I suggest writing your letter one night, then reading it again the next evening to give yourself time and distance from it--this way youíll be reading it with fresh eyes and will be able to find any wording that sounds strange or confusing.

Itís also a good idea to run your writing through a free proofreader like Grammarly. And, finally, there is no substitute for having an editor. Ask one of your friends or family members to read the letter and give you feedback.

Stand out from the crowd

There are a few things you can include in your letter to set you apart from other potential buyers. Including a family photo will help the sellers put a face to the names you mention in the letter.

It can also be helpful to print and mail the letter, rather than sending it electronically. Since we so rarely receive a physical copy of a letter these days (unless itís from a bill collector), it can be nice to receive something positive in the mail for a change.
