Real Estate Photography
First impressions only get one chance
Quality photos can determine whether someone becomes interested or moves on to another property. Compelling images that both stand out and inspire a prospective buyer to put your listing on their must see list is worth the investment, and our real estate photography will ensure just that. When it comes to stunning photography, videos or aerials for real estate marketing, interior designers, builders or landscapers, Ozzy Images will give you that competitive edge.
House preparation tips for your next photography session
Turn on all overhead lights, lamps and exterior lights. Replace all burned out light bulbs!
Clean your windows, as this makes a huge difference in the pictures.
Clean your bathroom mirrors.
Open all blinds, shades and curtains.
Wherever possible, remove personal photographs, especially larger ones. Some can be left, but try to keep it to a minimum.
Conceal garbage and recycle containers.
Remove table coverings.
Remove all signs of pets including food/water bowls, pet beds, chew toys, crates, etc.
Open blinds/window treatments to let in outside light.
Remove stacks of magazines, papers, mail, etc.
De-clutter fireplace mantel/hearth (no more than 5 items, including art)
Try to reduce kitchen items and generally declutter the area (removal of old pots/pans, soap dishes, etc). Try to tuck appliance/lamp wires out of sight. If you have nice appliances or decorative items, they may be OK to leave. Vases with flowers or fruit bowls can also add a nice touch to the scene.
All lights should be on including under cabinet lighting and over stove lighting.
Refrigerators should be cleared of any magnets, pictures and flyers. These can be put right back up again after the shoot.
Clear countertops completely. Remove plastic soap dispensers, toothbrushes, medications, deodorant, etc. If you have nice decorative dispensers they may be OK, but ensure they are clean.
Remove dirty towels – leave out only new, unused towels.
Remove floor mats.
Put the toilet seats down.
Make the bed, including decorative pillows if available.
Remove all clutter from the top of dressers.
Clear nightstands of all personal items.
Store away phone/tablet charging cables.
If you have a desk in the room, clear it off as much as possible.
Remove cars from the driveway. Some MLS services will not accept pictures if cars are in the driveway. Sometimes it’s a good idea to park your car in front of the home to prevent someone else from parking there. Then you can move it when the photographer is ready to take the pictures.
Neatly roll and store hoses and sprinklers.
Lawns should be well manicured.
Remove pool covers and BBQ covers.
Remove children’s toys where possible.
Blow or sweep off your walkways, patio and driveways.
Remove empty planter or items that cause clutter.
