    Pre-Shoot Checklist

    • Move vehicles from driveway and away from the front of home.
    • Place trash cans, and anything that is not attached to the home, in the garage or out of sight.
    • Cut grass, and remove all weeds from cracks in concrete.
    • Remove garden hoses from the yard
    • Pressure wash driveways and sidewalks
    • Clean windows and mirrors.
    • Remove the yard sign.
    • When possible, water the grass 4-5 hours prior to shooting. Even a brown lawn will look better.

    Kitchen

    • Remove any Calendars. – Calendars make a listing dated if it goes over 30 days.
    • Clear all counter tops. – No scrubbies, soap, knives or cutting boards.
    • Okay to leave 1-2 small appliances for size perception, but more than that can be distracting.
    • Clear the refrigerator completely. – No magnets, pictures, lists etc…
    • Clean shiny appliances very well.
    • Remove trashcan from Kitchen.

    General

    FAQ

    How long will it take to photograph my property?

    The amount of time required to properly photograph a home or commercial building can vary greatly. The biggest factor is the size of the property. As a general guideline plan on at least 1 hour. But many large homes and commercial or retail buildings can take up to four hours for photography. The time required for your photo shoot will be discussed at the time you book it.

    What if the weather is bad on the day of my shoot?

    If the weather is bad on the day of your scheduled shoot (i.e. rain, heavy clouds and the like) you will be given the opportunity to reschedule for the next available open shoot date. If you chose to proceed with the shoot as scheduled, regardless of the weather, please understand that the listed pricing does not include fixing photos for cloudy skies and such.

    How long does it take to receive my photographs?

    We will normally have your photographs back to you within a 24 hours period unless we are experiencing a heavy work load. We guarantee a 48 hours turn around time.

    Vitual staging requires a longer turn around time.  Typically 5 business days.
