How many photos do you need for a great property listing? It is a question we get asked quite a bit here at Dot Property. And while we wish there was a specific answer that would make things easy for you, the reality isn’t so cut and dry.
That is because no two listings are the same. What may be enough pictures for one property won’t be able to capture everything another one offers. Despite this, there are still a few pointers we can provide.
For starters, you need to upload more than one image while the maximum number you can publish per listing does vary. For example, the maximum is 200 pictures if you’re using Proppit. By the way, here is a reminder of why you should sign up for Proppit.
Anyway, don’t focus on the question, “How many photos do you need for a great property listing?” Instead, think about what people need to see from your property and create a checklist.
It is important for your listing to have pictures from each room. Yes, even the bathroom. Also, think about including other things that may be interesting, such as the view from the window. These minor details can be a big help to property seekers who want to know and see as much as possible.
One common misconception people have about photos is that they are unnecessary if you have a 3D tour, video or both. While those are excellent tools. Not everyone will be interested in using them. However, most people who click on your listing will look at the photos. That is why they matter.
Another thing to avoid is uploading repeat images as well as pictures of places/areas that aren’t connected to your property. For example, a picture of some beach five miles away isn’t really helpful.
Ultimately, there is no right or wrong answer to the question of “how many photos do you need for a great property listing?” However, more is almost always better.
