Before the photographer arrives check over this list one more time and then start to prepare the property for photos by opening all curtains, close toilet lids, remove pets, turn off all televisions/computers and park all cars in the garage or down the road.

If you have small children, we recommend that you take the family out for a walk while we shoot your house. This avoids people ending up in the photos and streamlines your shoot.
