Getting setup and ready for your interactive 360 virtual tour is very important when marketing properties online. Remember that a 360 virtual tour will filter out many home shoppers and unnecessary cleanups so doing a great job on the first pass will certainly pay off in the end.

 Virtual Tour Preparedness Suggestions:

  •   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.) 
  •   Winter - keep the sidewalks cleared of snow.
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.). 
  •   Replace burnt out light bulbs (the photographer will need light in most rooms).
  •   Clean off kitchen counters; remove any clutter. 
  •   Make sure dirty/clean dishes are out of the sink & put away. 
  •   Empty the garbage can.
  •   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.
  •   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. 
  •   Turn on as many lights as you can when the photographer arrives. 
  •   Try not to be in the room the photographer is photographing as you may end up in the photo.
  •   Please make sure if you have pets that you remove them from the property or put them in an area where they will not be in the photos or be a
      distraction while 
    we are taking photos.
The photographer cannot:
  •   Move furniture 
  •   Clean or dust 
  •   Move garbage 
  •   Pick up/move clutter (toys, dirty dishes, dog toys, etc.)
  •   Babysit pets

The home MUST be ready for the photographer when he/she arrives. Upon arrival our photographers can wait no longer than 5 minutes for additional home preparations.  We oftentimes have back-to-back appointments and do not want to be discourteous to the next appointment by showing up late.  If a wait longer than this must happen we will have to move on to our next scheduled appointment and the virtual tour will be rescheduled. If this happens a rescheduling fee of $20.00 will apply.
