Buckhead Atlanta FMLS INCREASES PHOTO LIMIT Now 40 Photos Per Listing

Buckhead Atlanta

FMLS INCREASES PHOTO LIMIT 

Now 40 Photos Per Listing

 

Starting Monday, October 3, 2016,
FMLS INCREASES PHOTO LIMIT
allowing a 40 photo upload at each Listing.

 

The instructions for uploading photos remain the same. While entering the Listing (or to add more photos to one you already have up):

"1. Click the Add/Edit Photo button. The Add/Edit Photos window opens.

2. Click Browse to search for and locate your pictures.

3. To upload Multiple photos at once, hold the Ctrl (Option) key down when clicking on the filenames. To Order your photos once uploaded, drag by the grey title bar. Click on any image to view its Details. For maximum quality, upload photos at least 1024 x 768 pixels in size.

4. The Browse button disappears once the photo limit of 40 has been reached. To replace an existing photo, you must delete the photo first and then add the new photo. The first image of each listing is considered the Primary Photo. For the majority of properties, the Primary photo might be the exterior of the property.

5. To rearrange the photo order, click the mouse on the Slot Number in the photo’s title bar and drag the photo to a new position. Click the mouse again to complete the move.

6. Click Save."

Question:
Do you think agents can come up with 40 pictures for each Listing? Will we start to see photos of the Elementary and Middle schools added? How about the nearby Tennis or Golf options?

Will there be competition to fill all 40 spots???

All the best - Lynn

Lynn that is a lot of photos and I am sure a Realtor will have to get a little creative to be able to take that many different shots of a property.

WE are hoping to follow suit on this also.  Ours is still 25 and we would like unlimited.

It will take a while Lynn although eventually you'll begin to wonder how you ever got along with only 25. That said, not all listings will need to be taken to the limit.

We got an upgrade in June and went to 30. That was huge. I am thankful my Realbird site has unlimited numbers or at least I haven't reached it yet.

I have worked with sellers who did not want too many photos in the mls. They said buyers may not come to see it .

That is an interesting observation. I am going to have to reflect on that issue.  Thanks for stopping by - Lynn

That is too many. The idea of marketing photos is make buyers go visit the property not give them a reason to pass on the home because of some feature that they may have compromised on if they were there in person. I will continue to use the appropriate amount of photos for the property not some ambiguous number allowed by the MLS. If the home is larger prospective buyers can always use the virtual tour to see more photos.

You are correct that the "appropriate number of photos" is what is needed for each Listing. At least now, the Listing Agent may decide the number to post!

All the best - Lynn
