A picture says a thousand words is an old cliche, but so very true in the real estate market. Here is a checklist to help you, the homeowner, get the most out of the professional photos we offer in our listing packages:


 Close the windows
 Park on the street or in a closed garage
 Rake the yard
 Remove all children’s or pet’s toys
 Put away any garbage cans
 Put away all tools and supplies
 Close the gates and garage doors
 Remove all pool toys, visible cleaning supplies and equipment
 Keep the pets out of the yard during the photo shoot


 It is the homeowner’s or agent’s responsibility to keep the pets out of the shot
 Put away all toys, food and water bowls, and litter boxes


 Clear the Clutter… Put it away in a closet or cabinet; don’t just stick it in another room.
 Clean the House… All the nooks and crannies.
 Turn on all the lights and lamps.
 Close the windows and open the curtains and blinds
 Hide any visible cords
 Put away all children’s or pet’s toys
