1-3 Hours before the Appointment


Selling your home is like selling a product. Market the house correctly to reach a specific buyer. It’s crucial to optimize your home for the future buyer. 

 The house should be photo-ready at the time of the appointment. We want your home photos to be the best they can be. 

If the home is not photo-ready at the time of the appointment, we have the right to include additional charges.
