Step 7 to Selling Your Home: Professional Photography & Videography

We're almost ready to get your home on the market! The final step is professional photography. We'll give you a few days' notice before the appointment. The appointment itself typically takes between 1 to 2 hours for condos and 2 to 4 hours for single-family homes/townhouses, depending on the size. You don't need to be home for the appointment. Our photographer will not only take photos but also create a video walkthrough of your home. We cover the cost for both the photos and the videography; there is no cost to you.

 

Here are our pro tips for ensuring great photos:

 

  • Remove any cats or dogs from the home or put them in a crate during the photography appointment.
  • Hide any pet beds, bowls, toys, etc.
  • Make all beds.
  • Put all dishes away.
  • Turn on all lights and ensure all light bulbs, especially those in lamps, are working.
  • The day before the professional photo appointment, use your own camera or smartphone to snap pics of your home. If a room looks too cluttered in your photos, declutter it even more.

 

During the photography session, we may need to move some items in your home to get the best shots. We'll do our best to put things back where they were, but don't be surprised if you come home to find a few things out of place. We apologize in advance, but we want your photos to look the absolute best they can and this sometimes involves moving items.

 

We often photograph amenities in the building for condos or nearby amenities in the neighborhood for single-family homes, such as parks or playgrounds. If there's anything specific you want to ensure we photograph, just let us know.

 

It typically takes 48 hours to get the photos back. As soon as they're ready, we'll activate your listing in the MLS and your property will be live on the market!
