Your photographer will be going through the home twice. Once for photos, and once for video; and your shoot should only take 1.5 hours or less. In order for our photographers to be efficient and provide best results we ask that everyone needs to be out of the home or on a separate level.
Clean homes photograph the best! A clean home is a necessity for selling at the highest price possible. Please perform a thorough cleaning of the home. (vacuuming, cleaning trash, and cleaning countertops, etc). We recommend hiring a professional cleaning crew for best results.
Remove clutter, less is better.
All lights ON, and replace any burnt out bulbs.
Blinds all the way UP. This lets our photographers capture any views from the interior.
Ceiling fans OFF. Ceiling fans create motion blur in photos so it’s bestto leave them off.
Remove all countertop appliances. Toasters, small microwaves, keurigs, paper towels, etc. The counters should be clear with the exception of fruit bowls and decor.
Remove all refrigerator stickers, magnets and photos.
Remove bathroom clutter. Remove all tooth brushes, hygiene products, hair dryers, etc..
Remove trash bins. For the interior AND exterior.
Perform lawn care at least one day before the shoot.
Remove all cars from driveway.
Close garage doors (if applicable).
Remove dirty laundry from all rooms.
Remove pets, cages, food and water bowls.
Our photographers shoot the property as is. We do not stage or clean during shoots. We do our best to remove small objects that can impact the image, but the responsibility for home prep lies with the agent and home owner. Additional fees may apply for delays to your photographer.
