Preparing For Your Home's Photoshoot
You get one chance to make a first impression so you wanna get it right. With 90% of buyers beginning their search online—especially this year—those listing photos matter, folks!
To get the most out of your home’s glam session, follow these real estate pre-shoot tips:
✓ Vacuum carpet and mop floors.
✓ Clear and clean kitchen counters.
✓ Clear and clean bathroom sinks, tubs, and showers.
✓ Replace burned-out lightbulbs.
✓ Open all blinds and window treatments.
✓ Turn ON all the lights (Yep—all of them!).
✓ Turn OFF TVs, computers, and ceiling fans.
✓ Remove runners, floor mats, and bath mats.
✓ Clear appliances of magnets, papers, and photos.
✓ Make all beds.
✓ Place all shoes and clothes in closets.
✓ Get rid of pets and pet items (toys, food bowls, crates, etc.).
If you’re short on time, focus on two things: 1) CLEANING and, 2) CLEARING. Then, take a deep breath and leave the rest to your agent and professional real estate photographer. You—and buyers—are gonna be WOWED by your home's photos!
