As you can no doubt tell, this rental property is a little rough around the edges. It had a lot of dark wood in the kitchen, dark floors, and somewhat neutral but dark colors in the other rooms. Lighting was on the dark side as well. Using the proper photo techniques and very little flash to avoid that “flashed” look, it’s possible to showcase these homes with good photographic techniques. It’s a challenge to strike a balance between making the property look “too good” versus making it look so bad nobody would even want to show up to see it in person.
