How to Prepare a Property for Shooting?

Home is not a place… it’s a feeling!

A neat and organized place always attracts more potential clients. De-cluttering your home makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living there. Allow viewers to see floor space in each room, dress your table, and add flowers to add a pop of color to a neutral room. Thoroughly tidy all exterior and interior spaces of your house!

A neat and organized place always attracts more potential clients and this is why I always recommend every owner kindly tuck away personal items and put away things from the countertops in order to give a cleaner image. The majority of home buyers start their search online, so it is important to make the first impression count!

A day before the shooting kindly prepare:

The interior- the heart of the house

The important is to put in order every room. Thoroughly tidy the exterior and interior spaces of your house.

  • Open window shutters
  • Hide all cables
  • All pets hidden during the shoot

• Turn ON the main interior lights

• Remove all pet toys and dishes.

• Hide toiletries that are on the counter or in the shower or bath.

• Place a bowl of fruit or a bouquet of flowers on the kitchen counter if it doesn’t detract from the finishes.

• Feature one centerpiece such as a bouquet of flowers.

Exterior. The front exterior is usually the first photo buyers see

  • Close garage doors
  • Remove cars from the driveway and front of hom
  • Remove visible water hoses, toys, etc.
  • Make sure the garbage cans are not visible


Backyard- an oasis to relax

  • Clean the porch, and tidy up outdoor tables, chairs, and cushions
  • Pillows and cushions should be fresh, not faded
  • Clear out kids’ toys, balls, frisbees, etc.
  • Clean pool
  • Remove pool vacuum/cleaner hose
  • Hide pool cleaning supplies
  • Turn on pool fountains/water features
  • Remove visible water hoses
  • Remove trash cans

The goal of the photos is to help potential buyers envision themselves living in your home.
