Preparing your Home for Photographs

 

At Bond Residential we believe that with great photography we can improve the sale of your home, but to really get the best photographs we need your help.

We recommend scheduling at least one day to get your home decluttered and prepared for your forthcoming photography appointment. Everything you do here will ensure your home is marketed in the best light possible and ultimately help to ensure the price you achieve is the highest price possible.
