"Would you list with an agent that displays no more than four photos?" I think in some ways the point of photography (aka marketing) is being missed. The photo's good bad or indifferently are there to entice a phone call and preset an opinion of value, nothing more and that is all! Not to help them make a decision of "no".If I had a choice between having 1 good buyer alone coming through a property or 1 good one with 5 probable no buyers, I would take the later, the 1 wont speak to the 5, but they will see them and if you're not an experienced negotiator, I wouldn't expect someone to understand the power of that.There are actually people who will not look at a house because one small wall of on of the rooms is painted pale blue, for example. If they make the decision in their lounge room at 10pm on a Saturday night, how is the Agent meant to overcome that objection?

The idea of limiting the number of images an agency displays to four is not only far from acting in the interests of a client, it's just plain antiquated thinking.Agents who wheel poorly qualified buyers through their client's homes (to create the impression they're actively selling) are not only wasting their own time, but the buyer's, and their vendor's. They operate in the paradigm that holding back information and forcing customers to inquire is productive when, in fact, they totally misunderstand the modern consumer and act only in their own interests. Would you list with an agent that displays no more than four photos?
