How To Get The Most of Your Photographer When Selling Your Home

So the time has come for you to put your house on the market and you really want to get the best result.  Your marketing is key in getting your home in front of as many people as possible so having the right pictures is paramount.
 
Your Agent will have recommendations of the photographer that you should use but how can you help ensure that your pictures represent your property in the best possible light.  Here are a few handy hints on how to make sure that the photographer gets the results you are looking for.
 
In other blogs I have highlighted the importance of styling and de-cluttering your property as best you can to make it ‘shiny’ but these are the little things we often forget about.  
 
When getting ready for your shoot remember that rarely will a photographer take photos of the interior of your garage and even your laundry so these are the perfect places to store items out of the way for the duration of the shoot.
 

EXTERIOR

Hoses – neatly rolled up or put out of sight
Lawns – freshly cut with leaves swept up if possible
Ensure outside areas are free from clutter
Make sure cushions are neatly placed
Pet food bowls and toys – out of sight
Cars – out of sight in garage or on the street
Pool – pool cleaners, creepy crawly and toys out of sight
Ensure pool is clean and free of leaves
Rubbish bins need to be completely out of sight (maybe ask the neighbours if you can put them out the front of their place for an hour if you can’t hide them)
 

INTERIORS

Lights all working and preferably the same colour temperature (eg all “cool” lights)
Blinds open and all lights and lamps turned on
Beds all made without creases
Pet food bowls and toys – out of sight
Toys – out of sight
Fridge – take everything off fridge including magnets
Dishes put away and racks, brushes and detergents out of sight
Take all appliances off of the benches unless they are a feature item
Bathrooms – all shampoo bottles toothbrushes etc out of sight
Neat matching towels on display if needed
Best to have the bathroom with very little in it.
 
As I said, it is the little things that make the difference.  Keep in mind though if you forget something, the photographer and Agent will generally make it right.  Obviously, it is in their best interest to have a stellar
shoot.
