Getting your home ready for photos and videos
You've just made the decision to sell your home - exciting! It's time to get busy.
No doubt you'll want it sold quickly (and for the best price) and may be wondering what you can do to make your property stand out from the crowd... Being in the business of photography, we know a thing or two about getting a space ready - and there are bunch of small, inexpensive steps you can take yourself.
Remember, most buys will start their property hunt online, so your homes photos are crucial to cementing that initial buyer interest.
Less really is more - De cluttering is probably the most important job to do before bringing a property to market. Clear the benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms minimise appliances and clutter and remove any unnecessary furniture pieces and decorative items. The goal is to show the flow of space which will allow buyers to visualise themselves and their items in there.
Clear the fridge of paperwork and magnets and take note that some personal photos may sneak into the images, so remove any of those too.
Clear out showers and baths of soap and shampoo bottles, remove mismatching towels, ensure toilet seats are down and remove any cleaning items.
Make sure bedrooms are presentable. That means, tidy bedding, clothes put away and side tables neat and tidy.

Now is a great time to time to complete any small jobs you have been meaning to get to like fixing the shower rail, patching that little dent in the wall, fixing the light in the kitchen etc.
Tidy up around the garden. Mow the lawn, get rid of any weeds, hide away the bins in the garage, and remove any toys or pet beds lying around.
If you have a pool, remove the pool cleaner and any pool toys lying around. Make sure the pool light is working especially for a twilight shoot.
It may seem like a bit of work to do now, but it makes a world of difference and has a massive impact on how your property presents, both in photos and at the first home open!.
We've put together a checklist below that you might find handy!
