It's Summertime Include a Photo of the Swimming Pool While in Use

It's Summertime Include a Photo of the Swimming Pool While in UseIt's summertime and everyone wants to live in a neighborhood with a swimming pool.

As I was purusing the MLS tonight, I noticed that a listing agent had included a photo of a neighborhood pool in the listing photos.

I think that's great. However, there was one problem. The photo he included was taken in the middle of winter and the pool was under cover. It's July for pete's sake. That's not the pool photo you want to include in the MLS.

The agent didn't bother to have the listing professionally photographed so why didn't he just run over and get a recent photo of the pool?

I have been visiting the many Franklin TN neighborhoods with swimming pools and taking photos. Then when that listing comes on the market in the middle of winter, I'll have some great shots of the pool during the summer months to include in my MLS photos. 

Here's my thought on this particular issue. If it's summer and you can't included a shot of the actual pool while in use, then don't include one at all. Buyers derive no benefit from seeing a covered pool.

I agree,

any blog without a picture looks very boring.

The blog post about summer should an image for sure.

Good morning again Tammie. I agree with you completely. Funny how inattentive some listing agents can be. Actually sad.

Good catch, Tammie!  Yes, create some emotional aspects through the power of "vision" with the pool being used!

Inna - I was specifically referring to MLS photos.

Sheila - Don't get me started. Good MLS photos are a pet peeve of mine.

Dan - Especially during the summer monts.

Tammie-Swimming pools, especially in summer, can be great to feature in listings information.
