Declutter kitchen: A few items on the counters are usually fine, but dishes, sponges, rags, etc. should be put away. It's best to remove all magnets, pictures, etc. from the refrigerator and remove throw rugs from the floor.
Declutter bathrooms: Toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, and other "personal" items should be hidden. Decorative unused soaps, candles, flowers, etc. are preferred. It’s also good to remove all throw rugs from the floor.
Prep bedrooms: All bedrooms should have their beds made and items put away.
Hide trashcans: Trashcans can distract so it’s best to hide all of them in closets or the garage.
Hide portable fans: Ceiling fans are selling items, but portable fans can give the wrong impression. It’s best to hide all portable fans in closets or the garage.
Hide cords and remotes: Sometimes electrical cords can’t be hidden, but you will have more appealing pictures if you can hide TV remotes, game consoles, and any noticeable cords.
Clear entryways: Remove all shoes, umbrellas, and similar items from entryways.
Open blinds with views: Your indoor photos will show outdoor views if there are views, or just light if a window looks onto a neighbor or other unappealing view.
Turn on lights: Before I arrive, please make sure all interior lights are turned on. If need be, please replace all burned-out bulbs at least 24 hours before the photoshoot.
Turn off ceiling fans: Before I arrive, please make sure all ceiling fans are turned off.
