I know how many people feel fustrated by seeing Real Estate listings without the pictures. I don't blame those buyers who merely skip the listings without the photos.

I honestly can not understand why the sellers don't fire the agents who did not bother to stop by at the house and take few nie pictures of the home and the neighborhood.

Hopefully, this post by Lenn Harley will help few more agents to realize how important the good pictures are.

CONSUMERS WANT TO SEE PHOTOS.  SO TO ACTIVERAIN AGENT MEMBERS.

So many blog posts about homes, homes for sale, communities, sub-divisions, high rises, adult communities, gated communities, rural areas, homes in towns, homes in cities, restaurants, parks, etc., etc., etc.

AND NOT ONE SINGLE PHOTO!

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE???  Are you writing about what you know or did you throw darts on a map to select an area about which to write today???  If you've visited the community, town, restaurant, etc. about which you posted those 1,000 words, didn't you shoot at least one photo???  If you did, WHERE IS IT???

The variety of photos and their use is endless.  You don't have to be concerned about copyright if you shot the photos yourself.  I keep a selection of photos for instant use on a photo storage site I put up just for this purpose.

The variety of photos and their use is endless. 

KEEP YOUR CAMERA HANDY and take photos of interesting scenes as you go through your day.  Save them on your hard drive or store them in one of the online photo sites like photobucket.com.  Take the photos in the lowest digital exposure possible for your camera and if you need to resize, use one of the online services like Lunapic.com.

By having a collection of photos handy, you can quickly add them to your posts.  This will add color, visual interestLenn, emphasis, humor, etc. to your posts.  If you're posting about a subdivision, include a photo of a home and not just the entrance.  Folks don't live in the entrance.

For fun images like the example to the right, have a friend take a photo with a light background, go to Lunapic.com and convert the image to a transparancy and you have fun images of yourself to add fun to your ActiveRain blog posts.  Remember to tag our photos.  Google doesn't read images but it reads and indexes tags.

Use your imagination.  Folks are far more likely to read a blog post if it contains some image(s).
