Listings with no pictures........seriously if you really want your listings to sell, it's called a camera. If you have a cellphone, you have a camera. Why on earth would anyone hoping to make money selling real estate not understand that if there's no picture on the listing......it won't sell.
Most of my business comes from out of state or international buyers. The process usually starts with phone calls and emails. The Buyers ask to start reviewing potential listings before they fly in to view. I set up the criteria and they start to get emails. If a listing has no pictures the client won't even consider it. Regardless of how good the description of the home is or how desirable the community is, the Buyer won't consider what he cannot see. So, my clients get back to me ready to fly in and see their chosen list of homes. No client has ever wanted to see a listing with no pictures. Even if I recommend the home and offer to preview and take pictures, they are generally not interested.
We live in a fast-paced world where people have so little time, isn't it incumbent upon us to make it easier for potential clients.
Please, take it from someone who deals with buyers every day, a picture is really worth a thousand words.
Oh, and one other thing, when you take the picture, make it a good one. A picture of half the living room wall and the ceiling doesn't quite get the job done. The stainless steel refrigerator is not representative of the kitchen and an unmade bed in the master bedroom....I'm not kidding, I've seen it all.
It's a Camera!
