Great photos attract buyers.

It’s true.  A photo speaks a thousand words.  Great photos attract buyers. Poor photos can actually put them off.   At JDG we believe in crystal clear photography that shows off the whole room.   Here are our some of top tips to help you get ready for your photo shoot!

The kitchen

Clear your workspaces of clutter, jars and food.  Hide away the dustbin. Remove the dish liquid and tea towels.

Add flowers and a bowl of fruit


The bathroom

Put down the toilet seat, remove the everyday shampoo bottles, laundry bin and any spare loo rolls.

Display fresh towels and some posh looking toiletries!


The bedrooms

Clear away any clothes and shoes.  Make sure bedside tables are tidy and nothing is peeping out from under the bed.  Clear off anything that is stored on wardrobe tops.

Dress your bed with your best linen and add a luxury look with plump cushions


Those general area’s

Clean your windows.  Make sure your curtains and blinds are open.  Hide away any wires that look unsightly.  Tidy away the kids toys and signs of pets.

Light the fire. Turn on your lights. Plump up the cushions


Outside your home

Move your car from the drive or house front.  Tidy the garden, and sweep away the leaves.  Move the wheelie bins.  Clean the front door.

Add colour with seasonal planting.


If you would like any help in how to prepare your home for photo’s, please get in touch.  I’d love to help.  We can create a bespoke plan just for you which is ultimately designed to help your home attract a buyer easier and at a better price.
