MLS Photo Services

It is said, “a picture speaks a thousand words” – no where does that statement have more truth than in real estate. State-Wide MLS offers a number of listing photography services that will ensure that prospective buyers get the truest image of your listings. More importantly, with the Internet becoming the first place homebuyers begin their new home search, the use of high-quality photos and virtual tours is more important than ever before.

Listing photos can be entered either by the listing agent or by using the photo services of MLS’ contracted photographer, First Look Photo.

REALTOR-Submitted Photos:

  • REALTOR® submitted exterior photo – Free
  • REALTOR® submitted supplement photos (up to 24 additional images) – Free

Members can submit listing photos via either mail or email. All Realtor-submitted photos must be received by MLS within 7 days – A $40 fine will be assessed for failure to submit a photo within 7days. Failure to comply within 7 days after the deadline will result in an additional fine of $20. To ensure that your listing photos get posted promptly, please see “Emailing Photos to MLS“.
