The rapid improvement of cell phone technology means the best camera to grab a quick shot of your listing might be the one in your pocket, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a quick way to make those photos even better for around $100—likely less than you'd spend on a dedicated camera.

Many cell phones are compatible with third-party lens attachments that can greatly improve the quality of your photos. Telephoto lens attachments allow you to zoom in on specific home features without sacrificing quality. Wide-angle lenses let you capture more of the home or setting in a single shot.

Gadget review website The Wirecutter has an exhaustive article on the best lens attachments for iPhones. Its top recommended Moment lenses are compatible with more than just iPhones, and the article also has suggestions for lens systems and kits at other price points and with different strengths. Your colleagues might have recommendations for their favorite lens attachments based on first-hand experience taking listing photos with their cell phones.

For far less than the price of a professional camera, upgrade your phone’s camera and, in turn, the appeal of your listing.
