How to prepare your property for a real estate photography session

As a real estate photographer, I have photographed countless homes and apartments. However, the best shoots are always the ones where homeowners take the time to prepare their property before my arrival. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful apartment located right on the beach in Palm Beach, FL. The owners had prepared the property perfectly, allowing me to capture stunning images that showcased the apartment’s unique features and beauty.

If you’re planning on having your property photographed, there are a few steps you can take to ensure that your home looks its best in the photos. Here are some tips on how to prepare your property for a real estate photography session:

  1. Clean and Declutter: Before the photoshoot, make sure that your property is clean and clutter-free. This means removing any personal items, such as family photos and toiletries, from sight. You want potential buyers to be able to visualize themselves living in the space, and a cluttered environment can be distracting.
  2. Stage the Property: Staging the property involves arranging furniture and decor to make the space look more attractive and welcoming. Consider hiring a professional stager or doing some research on how to stage your property yourself. Remember, staging doesn’t have to be expensive, and small changes can make a big difference.
  3. Maximize Natural Light: Make sure all curtains and blinds are open to allow natural light into the space. This will make your property look brighter and more inviting, and will also make it easier for your photographer to capture great shots.
  4. Make Repairs: Take care of any minor repairs before the photoshoot. This includes fixing leaky faucets, filling in nail holes, and replacing any burned-out light bulbs. These small repairs can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your property.
  5. Consider Curb Appeal: Remember that the exterior of your property is just as important as the interior. Make sure that the outside of your property is well-maintained, including the lawn, landscaping, and any outdoor living spaces.

In conclusion, taking the time to properly prepare your property for a real estate photo shoot can make a huge difference in the final product. By following these simple steps, you can help your photographer capture stunning images that will help sell your property and attract potential buyers.
