We have 36 photo spaces. With a residential property, would use them all, and include photos of nearby attractions. Commercial properties may not need that many photos, but may need more attached documents. I don't need 100 pictures. I don't think consumers do either, and there's definitely a point of diminishing returns. It's when the existing photos are worthless that there's a problem. I've seen listings where all the photos were so dark you couldn't even tell what was in the house.

Think of it like you are loading a marketing gun with eye candy and helpful imagery to help the real estate buyer figure out easily how this property differentiates from the next, the one after that. Leave no empty magazines, make sure every image, the first ones especially are going to hit the target, do the job to showcase the property, the local area too. Add floor plan, plat map, the bathroom shot sideways and a slide made to show the bathroom. Not slice it thru the center culliing out, missing the bottom, the top space and your buyer thinking wow, small, too close for comfort like all the other bathrooms shot wrong with the toilet seat up and light off darker than the inside of a cow. Shoot the fireplace, abandonace of storage cabinets, french door bevel glass detail, the garage, cellar and what you look at from all angles. Consider your angle, the natural lighting. Don't neglect video! Your buyer wants video, seller deserves video to open house on demand the property. Your buyer needs help differentiating this property with the next, the one after that. Get them wired on lots of helpful eye candy! They all look the same if you don't along with the sing song same old same old copy about nice yard, be happy here, hurry, won't last long. Tell them about the property... show them this property. The images reflect the lifestyle of the buyer's you are hunting and fishing for right?

We are allowed 99 (cue the "99 photos on the MLS song").  I post as many as needed to show the house, which is usually less than 20.  The most was 27, I believe, but that included local hiking trails, parks and such.

 

What I can't stand is the close-up of the sink faucet (like any buyer has ever said "OMG I want that faucet, I'm buying the house!) or my personal WTF photo... the closeup of the potted flowers on the kitchen table.  And people have the nerve to think "professional photographers" do a better job than an agent (with a brain) and a good camera phone!
