Tips for a successful photo-shoot and excellent ideas to prepare your home for showings!
(You don’t need to check off the whole list, just do the best you can!)

Inside the Home

  1. De-clutter as much as possible. Put away toys, clothing, dishes, towels, shoes etc. It’s a lot cheaper to put these things away before the photo shoot than to pay to have the photos “photoshopped”.

  2. Depersonalized to a certain degree. Photos of young children and any potentially offensive art should be put away.

  3. Remove any seasonal/holiday decorations that can quickly out-date your photos.

  4. Dust and vacuum.

  5. Make all the beds, fluff all the pillows, and check the bed skirts.

  6. Clean the kitchen sink and put away all the dishes.

  7. Clear all kitchen counter tops and put away toasters, can openers, etc.
