Don’t wait until you decide to list your Incline Village real estate for sale to start taking pictures, build a portfolio in advance and you will have plenty of material to show potential buyers. Shoot pictures at different times of day keeping in mind that the times around sunrise and sunset generally offer the best landscape photography opportunities. Avoid shooting pictures of the Lake and mountain views on hazy days or when the fire department is doing prescribed burns.
I recommend that property owners pay careful attention to how the sun hits each part of their house during every month of the year and plan your photography accordingly. It's important that each still picture and every frame in the virtual tour showcase your house or condo in the best possible light. Pay attention to how the light reflects off of windows, exterior glass light fixtures, any type of copper metal trim, and other reflective surfaces as this can affect light meter readings along with picture quality. Shoot every picture several times using slightly different settings until each scene has the look you are seeking. When buyers are surfing the Internet, great pictures will catch their eye and entice them to take a closer look at your property.
