In 2011, 90% of consumers searched for homes online. It is imperative for your listings to have a strong internet presence and for the photos to really showcase the main selling points.
98% of online consumers rated photos of a home as one of the most important features a real estate website could provide. There are also consumers who search according to number of photos, which means, the more photos you have, the higher your listing will appear on the search results page.
To further showcase your listings, Realtor.com has increased the maximum number of photos from 25 to 36 for agents with Agent Showcasing.
This is the perfect excuse for you to get in touch with your seller and another benefit for you to add to your listing presentation.
Add the additional photos to your listing:
1. Log into your Agent Showcasing Control Panel
- Under My Listings on the left side bar, click “Edit A Listing”
- Under the address for your listing, click “Edit”
- Click “Manage Photos”
- Click “Upload New Photo”
- Click “Browse” and locate the photos on your computer

As Realtors you’ve learned that referrals and recommendations are a sure way to build a successful real estate career. Providing great customer service leads to a satisfied client recommending and referring you to their friends; helping you build a positive reputation. Social Media has become the new “Word of Mouth” and because of that it is so important to build a positive online reputation by leveraging your social media connections and recommendations.
You may be wondering; once I’ve created profiles and acquired recommendations on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and other social sites, how do I get them in front of potential clients? SocialBios allows you to create “the ultimate ‘about me’ page that brings all of your social networking profile information together in one place (socialbios.com).” Potential clients can see how they’re connected to you (by seeing friends in common) and what their peers (your past clients) have said when recommending you.
Full Service Agent Website Users
Your SocialBios page can be linked to appear as your About Me or Bio page when someone clicks to learn more about you. Without ever leaving your website, visitors can see common interests, friends in common, etc. This is a great way to convert website visitors into business referrals.
