Prepping for Our Professional Photography and Videography Services
Getting your property well shot is one of the best things you can do to improve the odds of selling your home. It’s the one thing that property buyers use to figure out if they are interested in a property. Our photographers have the creativity and skills needed to do a lot of work on their own, but there is only so much they can do if your home isn’t prepped properly. By doing basic prep work, your photos and videos will turn out much better.
1. Outside Your Property
One of the things that you can do to improve the results of the exterior photos is to move any vehicles from your driveway or in front of your home. Ideally, you want to get a clear shot of just your property. This way, the shot won’t have anything but the property in it. Also, you should be hiding any rubbish bins at the same time. When you are getting exterior photos of your home, having consistency is key. This is why you should go through your entire home and ensure that all of your window blinds are open. This will make your home look more inviting and it can help to enhance its uniformity. If you do have garden furniture, ensure that you go through and organise it so it looks clean. If you have a pool, remove the cover to showcase its water.
2. Inside Your Property
When you are going around your home to prep the inside, you’re going to want to keep things out of sight. Keeping things out of sight is the key to getting good photographs of the inside of your house. This means you don’t necessarily have to go through and deep clean everything. You simply want to make your home look presentable by tucking things out of sight. When it comes to your kitchen, you’re going to want to get rid of all of the things on your countertops. Try to tuck them away in drawers or cupboards. You also want to ensure that you don’t have a drying rack full of clean dishes waiting to be put away. Put all of your dishes away and clean off all of your appliances. Remove anything that you have on your refrigerator and wash any sliding glass doors. When it comes to your bathrooms, you’re going to want to do the same thing. Put away all of your toiletries, fold up bathmats, and put out fresh towels. Our professional photographers can buff out any water stains through post-production but you’ll want to address these things before allowing visitors to enter your home.
All of the screens throughout your home should be turned off. It’s recommended to put all of your items away that you don’t want to be photographed. While we typically go through and try to blur anything personal out, it’s not something we can guarantee. An area that’s important that you don’t want to forget to clear out is underneath all of the beds. You don’t want clutter showing up in photos of bedroom shots.
