Policies

Please review our policies as they are subject to change without notice.

General Policies: Please ensure the home is setup the way you want it photographed, or we will set it up the way we photograph all our homes. Our photographers will not move large, heavy or bulky items. We may as a courtesy move floor mats, soaps etc, however we may forget to put items back. We’re not interior designers, meaning we can only give you our opinion, we do work with some very talented designers if you need one. Please use our preparing for photography guide located Click Here to prepare for our visit. We photograph 3 to 4 homes a day, which each home is allowed 1 hour of photography time. If the home is not ready for photography and we spend several hours at the property you will be charged for another appointment or we will reschedule/cancel your appointment, a same day reschedule fee of $75.00 will be assessed. A general rule of thumb, physically make sure the home is ready a day before hand, allowing the homeowners a chance to relax, which allows us to do our job without interruptions from moving objects from room to room. If your constantly moving items room to room then we get out of rhythm and may forget to take an angle we normally take.

Severe Weather: If it is raining, high chance of rain or cloudy, do not worry we have you covered. If it is raining we will try to get a photo of the front so you can go live within your contracted time. If the Sky is overcast, we will replace it with our blue sky stock photo at no charge. If we are unable to photograph the outside we can come back at no charge and do the outside. If you require aerial photographs it will be an additional $40. If you require us to come back just let our office know and we will get you scheduled. Severe weather is not a reason to cancel or reschedule, cancellation fees apply.

Photoshop: We do not alter any photographs that will mislead or misrepresent said property. Examples are replace dead grass, oil spills on driveways, roof discoloration etc.

Inconvenience Fee: If you need to cancel/reschedule, please do so as soon as possible, we try our best to fill the appointments so you will not be charged a fee.  It is your responsibility to ensure the home is ready to go and you/we have access.
