Where a photographer stands when shooting is as important as the subject we're shooting. Composition is everything in a great photo. This example isn't a real estate photograph but it proves my point. Had I been further to the left or right the feel of the image wouldve been totally wrong. It wouldnt pull you in. I suggest that you walk around before you take the shot. Move around higher and lower. See how things look as if your eyes were the lens. It makes all the difference. Making conscious decisions about where we stand, what we include in the frame, and the time of day we shoot, we can exert a lot of control over our images.
Light is probably the single most important factor in taking a good real estate photograph. You must have a properly exposed photo. I use flash every time.
