Here are some general tips for preparing your home for a real estate photography shoot:
Declutter and depersonalize
Remove personal items such as family photos, religious items and any unnecessary clutter. This will help potential buyers imagine themselves living in the space.
Clean and tidy
Make sure the home is spotless, including windows, floors, and surfaces.
Remove or hide clutter
Make sure that all rooms are free of clutter and that everything is in its place.
Open all curtains and blinds to let in as much natural light as possible. Turn on all lights in the room.
Move furniture to make rooms look more spacious.
Enhance curb appeal
Make sure the exterior of the home looks as good as the interior by tidying up the landscaping, sweeping the driveway and walkways, and removing any debris.
Move vehicles from driveways and in front of the house.
Stage the property
Add finishing touches such as fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit, and a vase of flowers to add color and warmth to the home.
Take care of any repairs
Fix any broken items or make any necessary repairs before the shoot.
