Congress is going to pass a 20% downpayment requirement. . . really? - 06/29/11 05:52 PM

Animals in Real Estate Pictures - OH NO! I love cats - I love dogs. . . I don't love them in real estate pictures. How many times have you seen a cat on the bed or a dog standing in the middle of the floor of the family room? I was hoping that as animal lovers you would agree with me that realtors should NEVER have an animal in a picture used in the multi-list or advertising. There are people that do not like pets, are allergic to pets and seeing (even the most adorable pet) an animal instantly creates negative (8 comments)
