How To Get Your House Photo-Ready For The MLS

If you are getting ready to list your house on the MLS, then you have to make sure that you not only have professional pictures taken but also that your house is picture ready. Because a lot of flaws tend to show up on the camera, it's important that you do the best to not only make sure that the interior of your house looks like it's ready for a photoshoot but that your exterior house is ready as well. This article will take a closer look at a few ways to get your exterior photo ready. Read on a little to learn more. 

Power Wash

Houses hold a lot of dirt on them, especially if you live in a part of the country that's really windy. If you have a light-colored house, like white or light grey, then you're really going to want to have it professionally power washed by a commercial power washing service. This type of company will come out and use high-pressure water to clean off the entire exterior of your house. If you recently had the brick on your house painted, then you may want to avoid this service or let them know beforehand, because if they use too high of pressure to clean it, then it may actually tear the paint off. In addition to doing the exterior portion of your house, they will usually power wash your door as well. Talk to commercial power washing services near you today to learn more.

Window Cleaning

Another service that you should look into is a window cleaning service. Professional window cleaners will come out to your office and will professionally clean not only the inside of your windows but the outside as well, which is the hardest thing to do on your own. The great thing about having your windows cleaned before you have pictures taken is that they will show a lot of reflection, which will make them stand out more. 


Another thing that you should do is to have your yard professionally landscaped before your photos are taken. Your landscaper can help mow and edge your grass, and even help plant additional flowers, too, if you want to really make your yard pop during pictures. 

Getting your exterior ready for pictures can seem like a lot of work, but when you have it professionally cleaned and landscaped, you can hopefully get the best pictures possible. If you want to learn more about these services, contact a company near you!

About Me

information to help working mothers find cleaners

As a working mother, I just can't seem to find enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished that needs to be taken care of. Between running my two older boys around and trying to keep up with my four-year-old, I just don't have enough time to do the cleaning that should be done each week. A friend of mine suggested that I look into hiring a cleaning service to do those weekly cleanings. She provided me with a ton of information and several tips that helped me find the cleaning service that has worked out so well.
