The best way to answer this question is to ask yourself a different one: What would I need to know if I were considering moving into someone else’s home? I’d need to know what my personal space would look like, but I’d also want to see other photos to get a sense of the whole house and what life might be like if I were living in it. I’d want to know what the outside of the house looks like so I can imagine coming home at the end of the day. I’d like to see where I might hang out on the weekends with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

In this spirit, more pictures are better. At the very least, your listing should include:

  1. The renter’s dedicated personal space (bedroom, bathroom and any other space that could be set aside for their private use).

  2. The living room, kitchen and other common space that will be available to the renter.

  3. The outside front of your home (you can leave off or blur the house number).

  4. All outside common areas and features, such as a patio, pool or firepit.
