Why are there no photos of this Lethbridge Home?

By
Real Estate Agent with Lethbridge Real Estate.com

When a Lethbridge Real Estate listing is posted with no interior photos, is is usually one of four reaons.  

1.  It's a Mess:   The house is a mess inside or so cluttered that the realtor feels that photos will decrease the number of viewings.  Or it could be a Lethbridge foreclosure, and there are no plans to clean it.   

Messy House

 

2.  Privacy:  Some home owners are very private, and even though they are trying to sell their home, they do not want interior photos availalbe for the world to see.  Also, if it is a tenant occupied home, the tenant may not have given permission to take photos, (and tenant occupied homes can often be too messy).

3.  Lazy Realtor: There are a few cases, where the realtor is too busy and has not yet taken interior photos.  Or she could be hiring a professional to do it, and hasn't received them yet. Or in some cases, the realtor has taken the photos, but has not yet posted them.

4.  Spec House by builder:  Many new builds in Lethbridge only have an exterior photo published. It could be because the house is not yet completed, or that they are focusing their marketing efforts with their in-house sales, rather than will realtor.ca      

 

If you are listing your Lethbridge Home, having as many photos as possible is very important.  Homes with lots of good, professional quality photos get noticed, get more viewings, and get sold faster.

Many realtors are so anxious to get the listing into the MLS that they add the photos later.  This is a huge mistake because rarely do I go back and look a second time at a listing with no photos.  I assume, as so many others do, that the place is in shambles or the realtor is lazy.  Do yourselves and your clients a favor - don't list the property in the MLS until you have all the photos and a virtual tour.

Jennifer, I am avoiding posting more pictures of my listing - or I'd say delaying it, until seller - who has agreed to stage the home - will stage it. 

I do not want to harm the showing activities...

HI Marnie and Praful. Thanks for your comments. It's always nice to have beautifully staged house ready to go when we list it, but we know that is not always the case and sometimes we just have to work with what we are given.

That is exactly what we think we when see there are no photos - a mess!    I showed a bank property a few months ago - one exterior photo, so warned these first time homebuyers.   Was pleasantly surprised to open the door and see a clean and updated home!  SOLD!

Joan:  Sometimes we do get a nice surprise when we go ahead and look at a house with no photos!  That could be the reason #3, lazy realtor, or #2, privacy.
