what to capture

If you want to create a truly outstanding property listing, you need to make sure it looks complete and answers to all questions your prospective tenants may have. With this in mind, remember to capture the following areas:

Living room. This is one of the most important pictures in your property listing, so make sure it looks relaxing and homelike. 

Bedroom. When shooting this part of a home, try to make it look cozy and bright.

Kitchen and dining area. Before starting to shoot this area, ensure there is no trace of household cleaning products. Your primary goal is to make this room look tidy and functional.

Bathroom. Since the bathroom is usually the smallest room, using 360 allows you to capture the entire bathroom much better than standard still photographs.

Exterior. Most of the people like to know how the property looks from the outside. That is why you should take some pictures of the yard and the neighborhood. Schedule your shooting for a time that will let you benefit from the natural light.

Sunlight and sunset hours are the best for outdoor shootings.


Listing videos should show the best of the property, not every nook and cranny.  The seller may have just spent $20,000 updating the water heater, but that's not going to make for great video.  Leave out areas that don't add value to the viewer.

Use the slider on OpenFrame to easily edit out those areas that detract from the property value.
