Sunset Beach, NC and Beyond: Crowdsource Challenge ~ Picking The Wrong Agent To Sell your Home

Crowdsource Challenge ~ Picking The Wrong Agent To Sell Your Home

 

As  Buyer Agents we have a tendency to be extremely critical of our MLS and the listings that are uploaded by the listing agent.  We creat portals for our clients to receive listings from the MLS.

 

We find ourselves quite often wondering and shaking our heads while we mutter to ourselves outloud, "What was this agent thinking about when they uploaded a photo, of a person sleeping in a recliner chair?"

 

Speaking of photos, why do agents hurry to enter a listing without photos?  To whose benefit is this?  Is there any benefit at all?  Buyers will skip by and look at the next listing, the one with the photos (and forget that house completely).

 

How about the quality of the photos?  Do buyers want to see a blurry or dark photo of a window? One blurry picture and the buyer is gone ....

 

Many agents upload only a few photos.  Is fewer better?  Buyers want to see a story of the home with as many pictures as possible.

 

Kinda make you wonder ... Is it sheer laziness or utter disregard of their seller's home?  

 

Common sense : Pictures are important when selling a home.  These pictures are all over the internet on multiple websites.  Wouldn't you as the listing agent want the best for your seller?

 

So what is wrong?  I say the seller is picking the wrong agent to sell their home.

For the most part you are correct, however I would rather see a few GOOD photos rather than a ton of bad or irrelevant photos- ie a nearby beach that cannot be seen from the property.  

Also You need to consider that sometimes there just is no way to make a property look great outside of photoshop, which I don't want to see either.  It's fine to remove some extraneous thing from a photo, but a digital makeover does not do any favors either.

Sheila ~ I agree, a few good photos are in the best light and angle!

One agent that my siblings listed Mickey's house with asked if they had any photos of the house for MLS...............horrifying!

Hi Frank & Karen...Buyer call or email immediately when a listing has no photos, Many of the team types have independent photographer who load photos a day or so later...Personally I don't load my listings without my professional photos included.
