I am NOT a photographer!

I got this D40 a couple moths ago for one purpose - I am in real estate and wanted something to take photos of homes.

I find that I can not get good photos of any interior rooms unless the room is very large. The photos look as if there is about 1/3 missing from the shot.

I am thinking of getting a mild wide angle lense but I do NOT want anything that will make the photos . . . look stretched. I have seen some photos other agents have taken with wide angle lenses - the interior shots . . . look GOOFY (the room looks like its 10X as long as it really is and a micrwave looks to have a 3' wide door).

As I said, I am no photographer so I have ZERO understanding of what the lense numbers mean. Looking at spec sheets . . .they might as well be in Greek. Photo samples on the Nikon site for the various lenses all seem to be landscape photos . . .so its hard for me to know what lense would be best for what I want to do.

Just looking for some recommendations as to what type of lense would be best.

Thanks in advance for any/all help.
