Check List For Photos
1. Clean your home from top to bottom
This includes dusting, sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming. You want your home to look as clean as possible in the photos.
2. declutter each room
Remove any knick-knacks, excess furniture, or personal items that you don't want in the photos. You want potential buyers to be able to see themselves in your home, and clutter can be distracting.
3. stage each room
Once you have decluttered, you may want to consider staging each room. This means arranging the furniture in a way that is pleasing to the eye and makes the most use of the space.
4. open all blinds and curtains
Letting in natural light will make your home look more inviting in the photos.
5. turn on all lights
In addition to natural light, you'll want to make sure all lights are turned on for the photos. This will help make your home look bright and welcoming.
6. put away pets
While you may love your pets, they can be a distraction in real estate photos. Put them away in a safe place so they're not in the way when the photographer arrives.
7. remove any items from countertops or tables
You want potential buyers to be able to see the surfaces of these pieces of furniture, so remove any items that may be blocking them from view.
8. tidy up any areas where there is visible storage
This includes closets, cabinets, pantries, and garages. You want buyers to see that there is ample storage space in your home, so tidy up these areas before the photographer arrives.
9. make sure all beds are made
This will help give each bedroom a neat and tidy appearance
