Preparing your house for a professional real estate photographer is an important part of marketing. Having professional images will get buyers interested in your property before they see it in person.

To give you the best image that will help sell your house you will need to make a few adjustments around your home. The following are a few guidelines that will help you do that.


  1. Contain pets in the garage or out of sight.    
  2. Remove all vehicles from driveways and do not park in front of the house.    
  3. Move garbage bins so they can’t be seen from the street.    
  4. Remove garden tools, hoses and sprinklers.    
  5. Mow and rake the yard. Sweep driveways and sidewalks.    
  6. Replace light bulbs, this is especially important for a Twilight Photo Shoot.    
  7. Remove piles of magazines and newspapers.    
  8. Clear off bench tops in kitchen and bathroom areas. Replace old towels with new, colour co-ordinated towels.
  9. Put indoor garbage bins out of sight
  10. Clean all photos and kid’s drawings off the fridge and make sure the floor has not kid’s toys laying around.
