Picture Perfect with a Pre Shoot Checklist

The exterior of the home is going to be the first thing that captures a potential buyers’ attention. Therefore, it is important that we review the following pre-shoot checklist so that your house is photo-ready on the day of the shoot.

 

Additionally, if there are pets, it is best to make arrangements for them to be off the property while the shoot is going on. This will ensure that they do not accidentally run in while we are working.

A Week Before The Shoot:

Exterior:

  • Clean up the yard. You want to have the basic landscaping needs done as well as add additional touches to really give the home some curb appeal.
  • Weed flower beds, cut the grass and add fresh mulch or seasonal flowers.
  • The exterior of the house, driveways, patios, decks, walkways, and the front porch should be pressure washed.
  • Clean all windows and doors outside.
  • If you have a pool make sure it’s cleaned as well.
  • Also, clean any outdoor furniture or lawn décor.

Interior:

  • Go through each room and clean up any of the clutter. You don’t want to have stacks of paper or items on shelves, tables or on the floors.
  • Check to make sure all the lights in the home are working.
  • Deep clean all the rooms. Clean the carpets, wipe down the walls, clean the windows and window seals, and scrub the floors and bathroom tiles.
  • Don’t forget to give all the light switches, doors, and cabinets a good cleaning as well.
