No Photo Available

Stephanie tells how important it is to have photos for your listing.

Original content by Stephanie Reynolds

No Photo Available

Really? In today's technology savvy age how can a listing not have photos? We have cameras on our phones, cameras that fit in our pocket, camera's built in to our video cameras, cameras on our computers. We do not have to take our film to be developed. HOW HARD IS IT?

Working with three separate buyers this week, all pretty Internet savvy, asked the same question: "How do people think they can sell their home without any pictures?" I asked if there was any of them they would like me to preview for them and take pictures and all said no thanks!

Sellers, when choosing a listing agent to sell your home, one of the questions should be how the home is going to be marketed. Ask when pictures will be taken. Ask to review them. Even if you are not living in the property, make arrangements so that pictures can be taken.

As listing agents, one of the commitments we make to our sellers is to market their home. The LEAST of which is taking photographs for the MLS. Our Sandicor MLS has a requirement of photographs within 72 hours in addition to the ability to handle 25 pictures! 25! That in itself is testament testament of how important pictures are.

Yet still their are listings without pictures. Even if it is within the 72 hour time period and you are getting pictures on shortly, think of how many potential buyers have now just skipped this listing over. Take the time to add photos when you add the listing!

Don't let your listing show up as NO PHOTO AVAILABLE. The buyers are saying it loud and clear. We are not interested!

It amazes me on how many agents do not use photos.

It is a violation on our board and it is something that is very rare here.

I guess the other question might be would you have a plumber work on your house with no tools?!!
