Here are some of our favorite tips to help get your property ready for listing photos! We're happy to help out with some of this, but the more you can get done before we arrive the quicker the shoot will go!
De-clutter as much as possible. Put away toys, clothing, dishes, towels, shoes etc. It’s a lot more efficient to put these things away before the photo shoot than to have them edited out in post processing.
Remove any seasonal/holiday decorations that can quickly out date your photos.
Dust and vacuum.
Make all the beds, fluff all the pillows, and check the bed skirts.
Clean the kitchen sink and put away all the dishes.
Clear all kitchen counter tops and put away toasters, can openers, etc.
Clear all bathroom counter tops and put away all personal items. Remove all shampoos, conditioners, body-washes, etc. from the shower.
Hide all trash cans.
Remove all magnets and decorations from the refrigerator.
If there are pets, hide all food/water bowls, pet beds, and pet toys.
Put all toilet seats and lids down.
Replace all burned out light bulbs.
Consider decorating the tables with your prettiest place settings, or putting out vases of fresh flowers.
Before the photographer arrives, ensure all lights are turned on, and all ceiling fans are turned off.
