Pre-photoshoot Meeting 

Pre-photoshoot meetings are crucial to a successful shoot. Therefore, we recommend scheduling this meeting a week or two prior to the shoot. We like to meet with all our clients in person and on location not only so that we can learn the layout of the property but also to discuss ideas and expectations for the shoot.  

Preparing for the shoot 

Buyers often look at pictures/video and floor plans as the first step in their search. That’s why  many sellers hire a professional real estate photographer to shoot beautiful pictures/video inside and outside their home. 

Before the photographer arrives, you have an important role. It’s generally your  responsibility to prepare and style the home for the photographs. A few hours of  cleaning, arranging and decluttering can help you receive beautiful, appealing  photographs, for an attractive real estate listing and a faster sale! 

We advise that your home be unoccupied during the shoot so that we can get in and get out quickly without interruption. 

Tips 

 

  • Clean the house: Do a deep clean of every room in the house, either by bringing in a professional cleaning service or dedicating a weekend to doing it yourself. Wash the windows (inside and outside), make the beds, dust, vacuum, and get those fingerprints off your stainless steel appliances. 

  • Declutter: There’s nothing worse in real estate pictures than clutter. Clear the kitchen counters of small appliances, tuck away bathroom items like toothbrushes and combs, remove any eyesore cords or wires, put your TV remotes in a cabinet, and finally go through that stack of mail. Remember, if you’re going to be photographing your garage or workshop, make sure to clean there too. 

  • Depersonalize: You’ll want to ensure buyers can picture themselves living in the home, and they can’t do that with your personal belongings in every picture. Take a few minutes to stash away things like family photos, refrigerator magnets, toys, and pet accessories. 

  • Downplay seasonal elements: Consider minimizing any holiday decorations or seasonal elements so that the photos are timeless. 

  • Stage each room: Go room by room with a critical eye, making small tweaks that can make a big difference: Open the blinds, turn on the lights, and add small touches that make the space feel welcoming. 

  • Remove window screens: Natural light is a big seller, and window screens dim natural light and make windows look dingy in photos. Consider removing your window screens before photos are taken, especially if you plan to capture high-value views. 

  • Add color: Make your photos stand out with splashes of color, like fresh flowers, a plush throw pillow, or a cozy blanket.
