Preparing Your Property For Your Photoshoot

SIMPLE TO FOLLOW TODO LIST

Letting go of your home can be emotional. However, to detach, realize that the house is just a shell for new occupants. Pack personal items, declutter, and create an impersonal, clean environment for potential buyers. Depersonalizing helps buyers imagine their own items in the home. Regarding furniture, avoid distracting or unique pieces that hinder visualization.

Organize

Organized storage spaces are crucial for buyers. Declutter closets and cabinets to avoid a negative impression. Attention to detail indicates your care for possessions and the house. Alphabetize spice jars, stack dishes, and align coffee cup handles in kitchen cabinets. Button shirts and arrange shoes neatly in closets.

Make the House Sparkle

Preparing your home with professional cleaning. Tasks include window washing, pressure washing exteriors, recaulking, and polishing faucets. Remove dust from furniture, cabinets, and closets. Maintain cleanliness with daily vacuuming, floor waxing, and dusting. Keep bathrooms and kitchen spotless, use fresh towels, and close the toilet lid.

Scrutinize Curb Appeal

Don’t lose potential buyers due to an unappealing exterior. Improve it by painting the front door, adding a wreath or flower pots, and hiring a landscaper. Fix any cracks on steps or walkway and ensure clear visibility of the house number.
