Is your listing ready for photos? (Repost)

Back in November 2012 we posted an article about having your listing ready for photos. Here’s the blog post for those who missed it:

———————————————————————————

When you book a photoshoot with us, usually it is assumed that the home will be photo-ready on the day/time that the photoshoot is scheduled.

What exactly do we mean photo-ready? To us, when the photographer arrives, the photographer should be ready to shoot immediately.

What is ‘not’ photo-ready? There are too many reasons for a house not to be ready to photograph. For starters, if the home has the following lying around, it is a good indication that the home is not ready for photos:

  • paint cans
  • tools/ladders
  • laundry (clean or dirty)
  • vaccuum
  • a stager, or contractor :)
  • anything that will ‘ruin’ a good photo
Please respect the photographers time…
In general, your listing probably is not the only photoshoot our photographers will have that day.  We never want to have a photographer late for an appointment. Although it is not the job of the photographer, they will usually help out by moving ladders and paint cans to help get the house ready.  This will inevitably will push back the remaining photoshoots that day. In fairness to everyone, PLEASE, have your listing ready for the arranged time.

If you need help getting your home ready, please read a blog post we wrote back in March 2011 that will give some tips to get the home ready.

If you feel that the listing will not be ready for the scheduled date/time, please call us ASAP to reschedule. Please remember that we require 24hrs notice to cancel/reschedule a listing. There will be a small penalty fee for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice, or if the photographer shows up to the home and the home cannot be photographed.
