An email I sent out to our Team and some Vancouver Realtors thanking them for taking photos of their Real Estate Listings for Great Vancouver
WOW only 10 more months left in 2011 and things feel good! Hope you all can share that same feeling too.
Just wanted to thank all of you who continue to post as many photos as possible on MLS (10). One of the things we all can do to assist each other is to maintain updated MLS listings, as well as, the MAXIMUM number of photos.....why? Because it looks lousy for all of us who share IDX data to have on our websites listings that have NO photos or very little. For reasons I can not explain, some Realtors choose not to take pictures or really terrible ones and it looks bad on our sites.
Here is a message I sent out to our Team regard just that!
On another note.....if you watch any of the real estate reality shows.....99% of the buyers and sellers are shopping on line. All they are looking at is pictures. So the question to everyone is why are Realtors taking such few pictures...or none at all. "Let's not be those Realtors" You have the ability of displaying 21 pictures on your .CA...so do it!!!! You have the ability of adding video to your listing....so do it!!!! You have the ability of adding better content on your site....so do it!!!! That is what your customers want and your future customers are looking for......We continue to do better in this area, but it is up to all of us to pitch in .... please and thanks mike!
So, once again thank you for continuing to be great Realtors...and if your office isn't asking your associates to do the same...please get them to...or better yet ask them why?
With IDX / Reciprocity becoming more and more a part of our business. It's important for us who care about the content to keep spreading the message.
Also here are our last months statistics regarding our "company" website and the leads it generated for the TEAM.
