Prepare your listing the same as you would for an open house or showing. If the home is not staged or vacant, please request your seller tidy and put away personal effects.
Before the shoot, open blinds and curtains.
Turn on all interior lights.
Make sure the driveway is clear of vehicles.
Pets. Dogs and cats should be comfortably secured. Food and water dishes, along with litter boxes, should be out of sight. It's also requested the back yard be clear of any poop. We don't want to have an errant landmine photobombing any of the shots. No one you want to associate with should enjoy that sinking feeling realizing they've stepped in a pile. Also, no one appreciates poop jokes, they stink.
