Pictures Speak a Thousand Words.

We are a real estate team that takes your home and your equity very seriously. We take pride in showcasing our client's homes in the best light possible to maximize their profits. We strongly believe that how you present yourself is how people perceive you and that goes double when marketing your most valuable asset.

Here are some tips to prepare your home for the best photoshoot. Think of it as a glamour shot. Talk to your realtor as to how long the shoot should take and schedule your day accordingly.

The day before the photoshoot:

  • Replace all burned-out light bulbs.

  • The property should be clean and clutter-free (we hire a professional cleaner if needed to lighten your load).

  • Minimize items on countertops and vanities.

  • Remove photos and personal items you do not want in the photoshoot.

  • Add decorative accents such as flowers, plants, and some pillows if possible.

  • No other service people should be scheduled on the day of the photoshoot.

  • Have all lights on.

  • Minimize items on countertops and vanities.

  • Have ceilings fans off and light on.

  • Put Trash cans, pet bowls, beds, and cages out of sight.

  • Put pets in a safe place where they will not be in the photo.

  • Remove magnets and other items from the surface of the refrigerator.

  • Conceal cookware, dishes, and cleaning supplies.

  • Beds should be neatly made and with covers hanging evenly.

  • Bedding should be plain or small print, especially lighter colors.

  • Pick and hide any clothes.

  • Conceal any personal hygiene items.

  • Mirrors and shower glass enclosures should be clean.

  • Remove parked cars from the driveway or in front of the property.

  • Mow lawns, trim trees, and other landscaping conceal all tools and equipment.

  • Clean pools and spas, remove sweep hoses from pools.

  • Turn on pool and spa water features.

  • Try not to schedule your shoot on trash day and put trash cans out of sight.

Yes, we know some of these things are common sense, and sometimes we are so worried and/or busy with day-to-day things that we forget.
