Sellers, Ask to See Your MLS Entry

What's with the eery glow outside the living room windows? Wonder if the sellers have to nail down things in the kitchen to keep them from rolling away?

Sellers, you should always get a chance to review your MLS entry once your agent has entered it. Check the text and details for errors or typos. Check the pictures to see that they're flattering. Because why in the world would anybody buy a house if they only saw pictures like these? I won't name the names, but these are photos of houses currently for sale in the metro Phoenix MLS. The living room shot is a house that's been for sale for 4 months! For the first 2 months, there weren't any pictures. I'm not sure this is an improvement.

Sellers, check the MLS entry. With 55,000+ homes for sale today, buyers will just keep moving if your photos look this bad.
