Take the pictures

by yourself

If you want to save money and you are a little creative, you can very well make the photos yourself. Choose a camera or smartphone with good quality. Your home should be clean, tidy and not too busy, with a neat decoration. Remember to take a sufficient number of photos. Take pictures of each room, and don’t neglect the details that can make a difference and make your travelers fall in love with you (for example, pretty plants, candles…)! Choose good angles, avoid taking pictures from too high or with your camera tilted.
