100 MLS Photos...that’s a lot of photos!

Just recently the Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors (GAAR) and Rapattoni our MLS provider announced that we can now add over 100 MLS Photos!  Wow that’s a lot of photos. I am a big fan of photos in the MLS and I have been an advocate to increase the amount of photos available but I never dreamed it would reach 100.  The mandatory is one photo of the exterior, its a good thing it’s mandatory because a few fellow agents would prefer NO photos.  I have yet to see a listing with 100 photos displayed but I am sure the time is coming.  

So what about you and you're MLS?   How many photos can you display, do you take advantage of the maximum?  Any minimums?

I totally agree 100 photo’s is over the top.  Personally I think they put that number out there instead of saying unlimited.  Along with photos I use YouTube or slide-show in the MLS on my listings.

John: Storage is cheap... I'm glad they raised the bar so high now there's no worries about room for photos. Do you know if 100 equates to maybe less photos but higher resolutions? One of the benefits I see is some special properties really deserve a photo essay about them. I love sites like Houzz.com where the photos are drop dead gorgeous. I don't think most agents will take advantage of it, but what the hey... there are certainly a lot more opportunities now... I'll check in with our MLS and see if they are up to anything like this.

Our limit is 25 and I don't see how posting 100 would be of any value.  I've had listings over 10,000sf that we had a hard time going past 30 photos even for the virtual tour.  I think it's important to have a good number of pics but too many is a waste of time.

John, we are allowed 24 photos through our MLS and I do think it would be good to have the option of entering more photos.  100 sounds like overkill, but depending on the property that flexibility could be a real plus.

Hi John, I'm joining the vast majority that is saying 100 is way too much. Did the mls express their rationale for this? And can you imagine the load time for those with older computers- another consideration.
