What is the best photo to use for my Main Photo?

Your main photo is the most important of all of your photos and may even be the most important part of your listing! This photo will be the very first photo on your listing and other marketing material associated with promoting your property.

In general, you want to make sure to use a photo that makes potential buyers want to see more. When selecting a photo to use as your main photo, it is best to use a picture of the front of the home or property. Pick a photo that shows off the landscaping and other “curb-side” selling points. Most people will be drawn in by an “inviting” photo; one that is taken during the daytime and looks like a nice, clean place. If you are selling a Vacation Property, you may want to choose a photo that shows off the property’s main feature, such as an ocean or lake view from the property. The goal is to entice potential buyers to read more about your property and click through your additional photos.

I replaced a photo on my ad but I can still see the old one, why?

If you have just uploaded new photos to your ad and they don’t appear when you view the ad or view the pictures on the Upload Photos page click the Refresh button in the toolbar of your browser.

Here’s what’s going on: Most internet browsers store previously viewed web pages on your computer in order to allow faster browsing when you view the same page at a later time. For this reason, your photos may not seem to have changed on the Upload Photos page or on your property advertisement (your browser is pulling the old image from your browser’s “cache” file).
