Preparing your home for sale

Professional photography is vital to a successful marketing campaign. We are committed to providing the very best images to interest potential buyers. The following is a helpful checklist of how you can assist the process:

INSIDE

Offer Process and Tips

  • De-clutter and remove any extra furniture that may make a room look too small
  • Clear kitchen counter tops, put all dishes, sponges, cleaning equipment away and take items off kitchen window sills
  • Remove all of your fridge magnets
  • Remove excess books or magazines from tables
  • Remove towels, mats & toiletries from the bathroom, including all shampoo bottles from the shower
  • Make all beds immaculately
  • Remove any visible items from beneath beds
  • Conceal all electrical cables where possible
  • Make sure all of your light globes work and wherever possible, try to use the same type of globe

 

OUTSIDE

Offer Process and Tips

  • Put your car(s) in the garage or on the street
  • Move the bins out of view
  • Have your lawns freshly mowed
  • Hide any garden tools, hose, empty pots or dead plants
  • Remove basketball ring, bikes, cars, etc. from driveway
  • Take all washing off the line
  • Make sure the pool is free of leaves and that your pool vac is stowed away out of the pool
  • Rake or remove leaves from patios or outdoor entertaining areas
  • Make sure all of your outdoor lighting is in working order and that all globes work

 

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Once you give us the green light to start marketing your home for sale, we will promptly engage the services of our photographer. Consider whether ‘Day’ or ‘Dusk’ photography would be best suited to your property?

 

SUGGESTIONS

  • Add a nice vase of flowers and fill your fruit bowls.
  • Set your dining table as if you were having a dinner party
  • 3rd or 4th bedrooms, laundry and inside the garage are rarely photographed, so use these areas to place all unwanted items until after the photo-shoot
  • Set your outside table for a BBQ or stage a bottle of wine and some glasses
