Time to take those fresh MLS photos

By
Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

These are the photos of a single family home that I'll be showing tomorrow.  Please note that today is June 5th.  Even here in the Chicago area, there is no snow on the ground.

Granted, this property has been on the market for 161 days... when we certainly did have quite a bit of snow. But unless this house is being used as the filming location for Home Alone 6, the foreclosure saga... it's time for this lazy agent to take fresh MLS photos, showing the lush green grass, and fully-leafed out trees.  Dont'cha think?

This isn't a multi-million dollar property, but the seller deserves high quality photos, or at least "current" seasonal photos for the commission that I'm sure they're paying.  Even if it was an REO or a short-sale!

C'mon now peeps!!

oh, the weather outside is frightful.

High quality photos and current photos are a must!  Sellers should insist on it! Good post.

This week I again was working with buyers and I was disappointed in the blurry inconsistent pictures on our local MLS. Now I print out buyers tours and you can imagine how the homes with these pictures looked. I apologized for other agents.  However does this mean that SELLERS do not check their listing pictures online?  This must be it otherwise it would  not be happening this frequently.  Soon as the sellers get savvy they will realize that the are not getting proper marketing.  This was a good blog so I just had to make another comment as it really is so important.
