Lets Prepare.

As a seller in today’s market you play an integral role in achieving your ultimate objective! Presenting your property in its finest “show ready” condition attracts buyer interest, dramatically increases showings, and ultimately leads to a faster closing. Properly preparing your home for the photo session helps us capture attention grabbing images.

Room By Room.

Living Rooms.

Eliminate any clutter, which includes excessive decorative items, tissue boxes, remote controls, and as many personal photos and belongings as feasible. Neatly organize or conceal wires to keep them out of sight. Ensure that floors are swept and carpets are vacuumed. If large area rugs are concealing beautiful flooring, contemplate temporarily taking them away. Also, make sure to conceal all children's toys and portable cribs.

Kitchen & Dining rooms.

Clean the counters thoroughly and store all small appliances in cabinets. Take off magnets and photos from the refrigerator, and conceal sponges and soap dispensers. Ensure that the top of the fridge is clear and tuck away any throw rugs. Finally, think about setting the table and/or adding a bottle of wine and glasses for a delightful touch.


Ensure that all beds are made and neatly organize or conceal children's toys. Vacuum or sweep all floors thoroughly. Conceal tissue boxes, personal items, excessive photos, remote controls, alarm clocks, wires, and phone chargers. The aim is to establish a comforting and inviting atmosphere throughout the entire house. Double-check that all lamps have bulbs and are appropriately plugged in.


Conceal all toiletries, such as soap dispensers, toothbrushes, and cosmetics, even those within the shower area. Wipe down counters and eliminate throw rugs. Keep clean, folded towels in their designated spots. If any visible areas appear dirty, make sure to clean them. Additionally, remember to stow away bathroom scales.


Ensure the lawn has a presentable appearance, although a fresh cut is not essential. Roll up hoses and organize outdoor furniture, including open umbrellas. Conceal trash cans by either placing them in the garage or moving them to the street, keeping them as far away from the front of the house as possible.


Just before your photo session, make sure all interior lights are turned on, blinds are open, and ceiling fans are switched off.

Replace any accessible bulbs that are out. Also, kindly remove all vehicles from the driveway and avoid parking in front of the house.


The laundry room or garage makes for a great temporary hiding spot for items that you need to quickly make disappear for the shoot. If there is not enough room in those spaces please hide additional items in closets or under beds. Remove seasonal decorations if possible.

REMEMBER: Everything in the room will be captured in the photo, so remove any valuable items you don't want visible.

Your Lot Three Media photographer will be happy to walk through the home with you before the shoot; however, we only make light staging suggestions and micro-adjustments. Moving items from room to room is not an option while the photographer is there; everything needs to be moved ahead of time.

Thank you for allowing us to photograph your home.
