Are you a first-time seller feeling more than a little overwhelmed by the process of getting your home on the market? Even experienced agents and sellers can use a few pointers. To ease your stress and save time please review our helpful checklist to assist in making your home photoshoot ready before our photographer arrives.

Our photographers give a 2-hour timeframe of their arrival. Each home must be photoshoot ready before your photographer arrives. If your home is not ready within 10 minutes of the photographer’s arrival, there will be an additional fee of $50 for their time added to the order. If you request a specific time of day, there will be a $25 non-refundable fee added to your order.  There is also an additional fee added to destinations 20 miles and over.

For more questions regarding additional fees please see our FAQs.
