Changing or Cancelling a Booking:
Changes or cancellations to a booking must happen no later than 24 hours before the scheduled time of appointment. If a booking is changed after this deadline, a rescheduling administration fee of $50 USD will be charged; your preferred new appointment time will be subject to availability. If a cancellation occurs within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment, you will not be eligible for a refund and you will need to place a new booking if you wish to proceed later. RealtorShots may at any time change or cancel a booking if weather conditions are deemed unfit for the assignment to be completed. You will be informed if this is the case in order to make arrangements for a new booking. The Realtor/Home Owner needs to provide access to the property, which needs to be photographed. The Realtor or the Homeowner can be present during the photoshoot. If the Realtor/Home Owner is late or does not show up to provide access to the property at the agreed scheduled time (unless there is prior written agreement for the photographer to have unsupervised access), Homfoto will consider waiting time of more than 15 minutes as no show, and a rescheduling fee of USD $50 is applied to the order. Or no show fees will be applied, which means that the booking and order are considered done and delivered by Homfoto. A new booking can be made online for the full price.
Right of Cancellation & Complaints:
Homfoto has a non-refund policy, which means payments and orders made on RealtorShots cannot be refunded. We will happily issue a credit to your Homfoto account that can be used for a new order. The credit expires after 12 months. Moreover, Homfoto does not offer cancellations/refunds once the photographs have been taken or service initiated, as we deliver a product that is customized and adapted for each customer and order. If you are dissatisfied with the results, we will work with you to try and meet your expectations by carrying out product-reviews and/or reshooting the property at our discretion. Complaints must be filed within 3 working days after a final product/service has been delivered. If no such complaint has been made within this time frame, the booking is considered fulfilled, delivered and approved. Therefore, you must place and pay for a brand-new order online, if you have any additional changes/requests or complaints after the time frame of 3 working days.

Customers must ensure that the property is in a clean and tidy condition, prior to photography. Photographers cannot be responsible for moving items, cleaning or tidying up a property or rooms within the property before, during or after a booking. When a booking is placed, a Preparation Guide will be shared which will help the Realtor or Homeowner in preparation for the session. However, should a photographer evaluate during the booking that the property is not in an acceptable condition for photography, the Realtor or Homeowner will be informed, and a new photoshoot appointment will be offered. This will incur a rescheduling fee of USD $150 at Customer’s cost. If the Customer wishes the session to be continued despite this, Homfoto cannot be held responsible for the outcome of the delivered images.
Additional fees can be added to your photography shoot. These include travel outside of our normal service area, parking fee, late fee, no-show fee, etc. Contact Homfoto (bookHomfoto@gmail.com) for more details. In the event the photographs do not meet our standards of quality and professionalism, we will re-shoot the property at no charge to you. (See article 7) If however, you request additional photographs or services for seasonal changes, or night shoots, or just additional images, then additional fees will apply. When the home is photographed, Homfoto customers are responsible for the following: 1) Ensure that the property is made available with access for the photographer to all areas of the property that will be shot. 2) Ensure that the property is photo-ready and clean (please read the online Preparation Guide for tips and tricks for the photography, prior to the appointment). 3) In case, the property is not ready for photography, Homfoto photographer may choose to cancel photography. Advanced 24-hour notice to the Homfoto photographer is required or a new shoot fee may apply. 4) If the Homfoto photographer arrives at the property and it is untidy, the Homfoto photographer will not declare the property not photo-ready but will shoot the property. 5) If the customer is not pleased with the photos because of the unreadiness of the property for photography and would like to have the property re-shot, a new shooting fee and travel fees will apply, which means a brand-new order must be placed and paid for if you would like to have the property reshot.
High-resolution photographs are provided to you for your marketing efforts. These files will be available to download for up to 3 months after the photoshoot. After this time, the files are archived or deleted, and a fee will be charged if you require the original files (where/if available). Not all files can be retrieved/unarchived.

Prepare for the Photoshoot:
We recommend you arrive 15 min before the photographer is scheduled to, in order to make sure that the home is ready for the photoshoot, e.g. If you want to move furniture around, or do some cleaning. Remember to open all blinds/curtains on all windows – so Homfoto can edit and add “Blue Sky” to all windows. It is your sole responsibility to make sure that the property is ready for the photoshoot. Our photographer is there to take the photos based on a tight schedule, so please make sure the photographer can start taking photos as soon as he/she arrives at the property. Please see the “Home Preparation-Page” for helpful tips on preparing for the photoshoot. Please note: Cancellations/rescheduling of the photoshoot cannot be done 24 prior to the photoshoot. If you need to change the time within 24 hours, we will charge you a rescheduling-fee of $50. If you don’t show up to the scheduled photoshoot-appointment, we will not issue a refund, and you will have to place a new order if you wish to proceed. Homfoto has a no-refund policy, but we will be happy to give you a credit, in case you need to cancel the order. We recommend that you go over the photos with our photographer at the photoshoot, to make sure that you get the exact photos that you want. The photos that you have selected, will then be uploaded for editing, by our photographer. If you don’t go over the Photos, our photographer will select the best photos within the number of the ordered photos. Remember that you can always upgrade your Photo package, on-site with the Photographer if you need more Photos. When will ordered Add-On’s be delivered? Virtual Tour Video = is delivered next business day, after your photos have been delivered. ?(e.g. if you receive your photos on Monday, you will receive the Virtual Tour Video on Tuesday) Virtual Staging Photo(s) = Usually 48 hours delivery, after the delivery of your photos (e.g. if you receive your photos on Monday, you will receive the Virtual Staging Photo(s) on Wednesday) Complex Virtual Staging Photo(s) = Usually 72 hours delivery, after the delivery of your photos (e.g. if you receive your photos on Monday, you will receive the Virtual Staging Photo(s) on Friday).
