I’ve got a bit of a bone to pick. Do y’all know how to use a camera, really?
Let me give you a bit of back story:

Zillow suggests this.
“Finding the perfect tenant begins with a quality listing. The more prospective renters you can attract with the listing, the bigger pool of qualified applicants you have to choose from.
