There are a lot of homes to choose from these days, and it's important to arm yourself with the best tools when house hunting. What's the point in looking for a home, when you're not prepared!
One of the most essential house hunting tools, which is often overlooked when buyers hit the pavement, is a camera. Digital cameras today are so easy to use and have memory cards that make the number of pictures that can be stored virtually unlimited. Taking pictures is an excellent way to supplement the information provided in MLS listings.
Most digital cameras also switch between still photos and video, so make use of the video feature.
Here are suggestions for what to photograph as you look at properties:
Along with your camera, remember to pack a flash if the camera doesn’t have one, spare batteries, and spare memory cards. If your camera has interchangeable lenses, bring a wide angle lens for interior photos.
Happy house hunting!
Note: If the property is occupied, ask for permission before taking photos.
