How to Prep Your Home for Real Estate Photography

After two and a half years of doing real estate photography full time, I've seen it all! From the messy home, house full of kids and pets, staged homes, empty homes and much more. Often times when I arrive at a home the questions asked are, does this look okay? should I move this? You can photoshop that out, right?!

You and your clients have worked so hard to prepare the home, lets add the finishing touches to prepare for photos. Below is a list of the top 20 things you and your clients can do to prepare your home for its big photoshoot!

1. Light up the home

Turn on all interior lights and lamps, make sure to replace any burnt out lightbulbs. Also, turn on the fireplace if possible. I can always add a fire in Photoshop if needed.
