PREPPING FOR PHOTOS

  • HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
    Nothing sells better than light, bright and spacious real estate photography. In order to achieve that, it’s important that you take some time to do the following…
    Stage by decluttering everything you can:
    ___ Countertops cleared (makes kitchens & baths spacious)
    ___ Tables & furniture cleared (leave a nice centerpiece or lamp)
    ___ Bookshelves cleared (leave a couple items so they don’t look bare)
    ___ Walls cleared (great decor is fine)
    ___ Toiletries & makeup in bathrooms & bedrooms cleared
    ___ Refrigerator exterior cleared
    ___ Only keep creature comforts like furniture, simple decor & basic necessities
    ___ Pare everything else down to the bare essentials
    ___ Showcase your home, not your nicknacks, family photos & collections
    ___ Box or neatly place everything in a storage area, basement or garage
    On the day of photography:
    ___ Open all window curtains
    ___ Straighten & lift all blinds
    ___ Turn on all lights
    ___ Turn off all ceiling fans
    ___ Toys & baby items placed into their rooms
    ___ Empty sink
    ___ Yard picked up
    ___ Trash cans and hoses put away
    ___ Vehicles off driveway
    ___ Exterior doors and garage closed
