I am no expert and have not done much in the way of architecture photography but these are my thoughts.
I guess if it is an ugly home you have got to find redeeming features and also show potential, estate agents love wide angle lenses to give the illusion that rooms and gardens are bigger than they really are. Use soft diffused flash to light up rooms and make them look less gloomy.
If it was me I would look for interesting features, areas which do have light such as beside windows, look at the land around it etc. I suppose stating the obvious you have to try and sell it in the photograph so a starting point would be if this is the only house you could have what do you like about it or what would you do to improve by doing this you should be able to pick out the positives and also pick out some of the potential.
Try to also get shots on a bright day with a blue sky as that will make the property look more appealing from the outside.
Your job I guess is to get people to view the property ultimately when they are in the property a photograph won't change there mind that is the job of a salesman.
It sounds to me that the company have picked a very tricky subject as a test.
