San Francisco Real Estate: Escrow Out Loud
Listing Photos: What You Need to Know When Buying or Selling
In today’s episode of Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we talk real estate marketing, internet photos and buyer privacy.
[00:21] People love pictures, which is why real estate marketing (at least in San Francisco) is all about photos. Everybody wants photos. Everybody also wants privacy. The problem with this is, that once something is up on the internet it is generally very difficult to take it down again.
[02:00] While sellers are very well informed about how hard it is to get photos off the internet, buyers don’t get a lot of heads up about this fact. One of the things a buyer can do, however, is ask the listing agent to take down photos of interior shots and floor plans before the sale closes. What are some other things buyers can do?
[05:15] On the flip side, when an agent deletes all the interior photos the value of the multiple listing service database is degraded to agent subscribers. Is it possible to keep a set of photos internally?
[07:10] To wrap up we share some advice to buyers concerned about privacy.
