    Virtual Tour Preparedness Suggestions:

  1. Outdoors:
    ☐ Spruce up your garden and lawn; trim shrubbery if necessary.
    ☐ Yard and patio should be neat; outdoor furniture should be in good shape.
    ☐ Mow the lawn; make sure the driveway & entryway are free of clutter (toys, bikes, etc.)
    ☐ Remove vehicles from the driveway and front of the property for the ideal exterior photo.
    ☐ Winter - keep the sidewalks cleared of snow.

  2. Living Areas:
    ☐ Remove clutter and tidy up the shelves.
    ☐ Move excess furniture out of rooms. You want the space clean, open, and clutter-free (dog crates, tray tables, etc.).

  3. Kitchen:
    ☐ Clean off kitchen counters; remove any clutter.
    ☐ Make sure dirty/clean dishes are out of the sink & put away.
    ☐ Empty the garbage can.

  4. Bathrooms:
    ☐ Put essential items used daily in a small box that can be stored away.
    ☐ Close toilet lid and empty the garbage.
    ☐ Clean mirrors & glass surfaces.
    ☐ Hang towels neatly from towel bar.

  5. Overall/General:
    ☐ Check the basics around the house (indoors & out). It takes just a minute to make sure the house is clutter-free and all is in order.
    ☐ Try not to be in the room the photographer is photographing as you may end up in the photo.

  6. The photographer cannot:
    • Move furniture
    • Clean or dust
    • Move garbage
    • Pick up/move clutter (toys, dirty dishes, dog toys, etc.)
