PREPARING THE HOME
Clean well and de-clutter (De-cluttering is more important for the photos that dirt :)
Turn on all lights; fans off (replace any burned out bulbs)
Remove pet toys, bowls, and beds.
Open window coverings (unless they are concealing a less than desirable view).
Remove screens from windows.
Clear kitchen counter tops, minimal appliances.
Put children's toys away.
Clear the bathroom counter tops and shower - toothbrushes, shampoo bottles, etc.
Place any decorative items, plants, or floral arrangements.
Remove trash cans, gardening tools, etc from sight.
Stow children’s and pet’s toys.
Sweep driveways and sidewalks.
Open patio umbrellas and set out cushions - Or remove umbrellas all together.
Uncover bbqs, pools, spas.
Remove gates/fences around pool.
Remove all vehicles from driveways and do not park in front of the house.
DO park in front (or put trash cans in front) if it is a busy street to ensure no one else parks there. Then we can move everything and get an unobstructed view.
