Why Would You List With NO Picture? I Don't Get It.

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Bradley (260)704-0843

As I'm sipping coffee and browsing through the new listings on the Fort Wayne MLS this morning, I noticed something a little odd.

There were 68 new listings in the last 24 hours.  Out of those 68, 8 of them were listed with NO pictures. 

None.  Not even a picture of the front.  Instead, this image appears on all of them. 

I'm no genius or Super Realtor® or anything, but if you are going to list a home, why not upload the pictures before you make it live?

Most Realtors® I know search the new listings daily, or at least browse through them.  A lot of times this is the only time they will see your brand new listing.  With no picture...  I bet they don't look at it too long.

Plus the public can see this.  In my opinion, you want to have everything ready when you list a home.  Including pictures. 

I don't get it.

In our MLS the listing is removed if a photo isn't posted within 24 hours.  That stops some of the worst violators but some agents just post a crummy picture of the front and call it a day.  Nuts.

Lazy? Untrained? Uncaring? And why would a seller stand for it. Even the banks we work for have a minimum requirement for the number of pictures - go figure.

Yeah, If there is no image, the people won't look at it that long. Adding images would be a great help.

I don't get it either - Surely there isn't such a rush to get the property on the market that listing without photographs is better than not listing?!

They probably turn in the listing package at the front desk and then send the emails to the secretary. Secretary puts the listing in and gets to the pictures later. Who knows.
