Photos required on listings

SmartMLS Rules & Regulations require that, for all property types except Land, Business for Sale or any property that is Proposed New Construction, Under Construction or To Be Built, the primary photo must be:

  • An actual photo * of the dwelling.
  • Uploaded within 48 hours .

* The photo does not necessarily have to be of the exterior of the dwelling, but it must be a photo of the main structure.  It cannot be a drawing, illustration, cartoon, etc.  Additionally, it cannot be a photo of a sign or a view of the property (either from inside or outside of the home).

Apartment-style Condominiums and Co-Ops where a photo of the unit is not possible still require at least one photo to be uploaded within 48 hours, but the photo does not have to be of the actual unit.  An external photo of the building itself is permissible.

Properties that are either proposed construction or under construction are required to have at least 1 exterior photo once construction has been completed.

*** Please note: photos must represent the property, community or neighborhood.  Photos of stores, businesses, etc. are forbidden, as that could be construed as advertising. ***
