Humans are visual beings. Seeing is believing. Paint me a picture. There are lots of phrases that describe our desire or requirement to see things!
But it seems some sellers are trying to sell their homes without photos! You know how good at writing an agent must be to sell a house with only narrative prose.
I will admit that this is not restricted to our MLS system. It happens all over I am sure! I guess this is a problem as our local Realtor Board just posted a memo that states you must have a photo in the MLS system within 5 days after inputting the property in the system.
If you are selling your home you must have more than one photo. Our MLS system allows 12 photos and other web sites I use allow a little less (6 at a minimum). Furthermore, a virtual tour or slide show or some additional visual renderings will only help you sell! [My opinion - if your agent has not input at least one photo within 24 hours, call him!]
The narrative comments are restricted and condensed because of space limitations. Good photos, when combined with a decent narrative, will increase your buyer interest!
