Getting good quality photographs are key to the successful marketing of your property. Great photos can generate more interest quickly, which ultimately can result in more money for you! This article explains what you can do to get your property ready for the photographs to be taken.

Getting Ready

The following is good preparation for making sure you get great property photographs:

  1. Clean and tidy the property throughout
  2. Declutter (inside & out)
  3. Clear and wipe off all surfaces
  4. Clean windows (in/out), mirrors, screens etc
  5. Remove cobwebs
  6. Hide dish soaps, sponges, carrier bags and paper towels.
  7. Set up the kitchen or dining table with nice set of dishes.
  8. Remove everything from the top and doors of the fridge. This includes magnets, business cards, photos, etc.
  9. Hide any toiletries that are in the shower or bath, as well as on the counter.
  10. Toilet seats and lids down
  11. Move furniture that affects the ‘flow’ of the room. Careful of moving tables etc as they may leave marks
  12. Move/hide cables
  13. Open curtains and blinds
  14. Turn TVs/monitors etc off
  15. Remove pets and evidence of pets
  16. Cut the grass
  17. Weed the garden
  18. Move bins (inside & out)
  19. Move vehicles from driveways
  20. Dress the rooms, inject some colour
  21. A bowl of fruit or bouquet of flowers can be a nice touch.

After you (or someone else) have prepared the property, walk around the property making sure you are really looking at the rooms, change anything that you don’t like for the photographs. As it can be difficult to see the ‘obvious’ issues in our own homes, perhaps ask a friend to help.

I hope the above has helped you to get great property photographs.
