I can't help but take a look at the new MLS listings on the weekends. I'm going to list the condo in the near future and I think it's interesting to see what's on the market fairly regularly.
There's a great local website that allows easy browsing of new listings and I recently found one that made me a little sad for the owners. There were just four images on the listing. One was of a swing set in the yard and the others were exterior shots. All of the shots were taken from roughly the same area.
I assumed that the listing would say something about more photos coming soon, but instead, there was no write up. The "remarks" section of the listing was totally empty.
I really hope the sellers check their listing and get this corrected. I don't know what a real estate agent's job is like, but I know what listings catch my eye and make me imagine myself in a home. Three exterior shots and a swing set don't do it for me and I'll be a buyer at some point in the future.
When you look at real estate listings, what catches your eye? If there was something you could make every listing have, what would it be?
