Vacant Homes - Amy Harley Photography

Home Preparation for Vacant Homes

Before I arrive, please make sure the following are done:

• Lights off (I will turn on individual lights if needed)

• Ceiling fans off

• Toilet lids down

• Move cars and trash cans out of view


A spotless home really helps the listing photos look great:

• Clean floors (Dark glossy wood floors show every speck of dirt)

• Wash windows

• Clean mirrors

• Wipe down counter tops


Please have your home ready before I arrive, as I will be onsite for only an hour or two at most. And please note it’s easiest for me to photograph your home if there are no workers on the property. Your listing photos will look even better if the home is staged. If you’re unsure how to stage for your target buyer, professional home stagers offer a range of services, from staging the entire home using their own inventory to a short consultation with specific recommendations for you to complete. I am happy to personally recommend:
