Preparing your home for a photo shoot

Buyers gravitate toward homes that look clean and well maintained. Preparing your home for the photo shoot is important because it gives your listing the best possible first impression and makes your listing stand out from the competition.

The photo shoot will take between 1 – 2 hours depending on the size of the home. We will be photographing both the inside and

outside of your home. We’ll photograph all of the major rooms. We usually don't photograph the garage unless it has special features.

If you have special features of your home that are not obvious, please let us know about these so we can include them in the shoot.
