Photoshoot & Drone Fly-through Preparation

To prepare your home for a real estate photoshoot and drone fly-through with Pixel Perfect Properties, here's a comprehensive description and checklist to ensure your property looks its best.

General Preparation

  1. Declutter: Clear all countertops, nightstands, and dressers of personal items. Remove excess furnishings and knick-knacks.

  2. Depersonalize: Take down personal photos and items to help potential buyers visualize themselves in the space.

  3. Clean: Ensure the entire home is clean, including windows, mirrors, and floors. Vacuum carpets, polish floors, and tidy up any outdoor areas.

  4. Lighting: Open blinds and shutters to let in natural light, ensuring all light bulbs are working and turned on.

  5. Bedrooms: Make all beds neatly, arrange decorative pillows, and store any visible clothing and shoes.

  6. Bathrooms: Close toilet lids, clear countertops, remove shower items, and store personal items like toothbrushes and soaps.

  7. Kitchen: Clean surfaces and appliances, clear counters, and remove magnets and photos from the refrigerator.

  8. Outdoor Areas: Clean up the yard and landscaping, sweep porches, patios, and decks, and stage these areas if possible.

  9. Remove Distractions: Turn off all ceiling fans, TVs, and computer screens to avoid motion blur in photos.

  10. Pet Items: Remove all pet items, including bowls, toys, and beds, as they can be distracting and some buyers may have allergies.

  11. Vehicles and Trash Cans: Clear all cars from the driveway and the road, and hide garbage cans and lawn equipment.

  12. Open Space: Ensure a safe path through the home for the drone, with all interior doors open and hanging cords secured.

Additional Tips

  • Be prepared to leave the property during the shoot to avoid accidental appearances in photos or videos.

  • Reschedule if necessary due to weather conditions, as poor weather can affect the quality of the photos and the ability to fly drones.

Remember, the goal is to present your home in the best possible light to attract potential buyers. A well-prepared home leads to more effective and attractive real estate photography and videography​
