Start by setting your camera to the maximum quality possible. The easiest photos are pictures taken in the middle of the day with a straight on view. As a basic rule, keep the sun over your shoulder but keep an eye on where your shadow falls. Most clients choose a day image because the details can be seen easily.
Shooting exteriors at twilight will give your home a warm feel. About ten minutes after the sun sets, the sky turns a deep blue. Shooting at this time, with all the interior lights on, will create an inviting atmosphere in your images.
It's important to keep your camera level both vertically and horizontally. If the camera isn't straight, the home will appear distorted.
Try to fill as much of the frame as possible.
Send the highest resolution files possible (at least 150 dpi.
