‚ÄčPREPARATION GUIDE

 

When our photographer arrives, they will want to begin working right away so it is important that everything is ready to be photographed. They will be photographing both the interior and exterior of the property. With these guidelines, you can make a big impact on how well the final product looks, so let's get started!

 

The Exterior

The primary photo used to showcase your property is very important. We want to attract as many buyers as possible.

  • Remove all tools, hoses, lawn mowers, etc.

  • Make sure the property has been maintained (trimmed foliage, mowed lawn, clean gutters etc.).

  • Remove all children's toys.

  • Move any recycle/garbage bins out of sight.

  • Make sure no vehicles are in the driveway, on the property, or street side in front of the property. If needed, park your vehicles in front on the street and then move them when the photographer arrives to make sure no vehicles are in the photograph.

  • If there is a pool, make sure it’s clean, move all cleaning supplies, toys, covers, any child gates out of sight.

  • Turn on all pool features, lights, and fountains.

  • Remove any covers and store them out of sight (grills, spas, pool).
