How do I make my listing photos stand out?

Last Updated: Feb 21, 2017
Successful listings start with great photos. Listings with high quality photos are more likely to get booked. To help boost your bookings on HomeAway, ensure you upload high quality listing images.

Cover the essentials
Give your guests a visual snapshot of your entire home. We recommend to upload 12 to 25 high quality photos that cover all the spaces that are important for travellers.

Take high resolutions photos
We strongly recommend that all pictures are in a landscape format and have a resolution greater than 1024 x 768 pixels.

Upload relevant photos
Feature specific items in your photos only if they will add value to your listing (e.g. Post a photo of the hot tub but avoid posting photos of the toilet seats).

Use natural lighting
It is usually best to take pictures during the day when the natural sunlight makes the space look bigger and brighter.

Keep it clean & tidy
Clean up the space, remove the clutter and smoothen out the sheets to make the best impression.

Order your photos
Your first six pictures should cover diverse and essential spaces.

No text on photos
Keep your photos clean and free of text to avoid shifting the focus from your property. Use the captions instead to highlight important features in your listing.

Caption deliberately
Simple captions can help highlight and ‘sell’ specific features of these spaces (e.g. Spacious living room overlooking the park, Fully equipped kitchen including a coffee machine).
