First Impressions Count

Take a look at our simple but effective Top Tips to prepare your property for professional quality photographs to showcase your home to its full potential and attract potential buyers.


  • Ensure front door / entrance is clean and freshly painted (if necessary).
  • Remove any vehicles from driveway and/or outside of the property.
  • Remove wheelie bins out of sight.
  • Ensure gardens are well tended.
  • Clean windows.
  • Keep washing lines clear.


  • Clean and de-clutter all rooms (this creates the impression of space and allows potential buyers to visualise their belongings in your property).
  • Close all windows.
  • Open all curtains / blinds to allow natural light through.
  • Put lamps / spotlights on (this can give a ‘warmer’ feel to a room).
  • Turn TV’s off.
  • Clear kitchen worktops and remove any dishes from sink/drainer.
  • Keep bins out of sight.
  • Ensure any kitchen/bathroom cleaning products are stored away.
  • Keep toilet seats / lids down.
  • Keep bathroom toiletries out of sight and put out clean towels.
  • Make all beds.
  • Remove any pet bedding / feeding bowls.

Remember….first impressions count when selling your home!
