Day of the shoot – what you need to do

  • Remember to depersonalise, depersonalise, depersonalise! Remove personal items like family photos so potential buyers can visualise themselves living in your house.
  • Declutter as much as possible. You want people to look at your home, not your belongings.
  • Please remove any vehicles from the driveway and park a couple of doors down from your home.
  • Remove bins from the front of the house.
  • Open all your curtains and blinds to let in as much natural light as possible.
  • Turn on all your lights, including bedside lamps. Please make sure all your globes are matching and working. For a twilight shoot, please turn on all your inside AND outside lights and ensure all your globes are working.
  • Remove clutter from kitchen countertops. This includes plates, bowls, cups, kettles, knife blocks, paper towels, tea towels etc. Clear all fridge magnets.
  • Pack away all personal bath products (soap, hair products, razors, toilet rolls, scales, air fresheners etc.). There should be nothing in or around your sink or shower area.
  • Ensure you bed linen is matching.
  • Remove any unattractive plants from backyards, patio/decking etc.
