No. We retain the full copyright to all images that are taken. We grant a non-transferable license to the original purchaser. This license allows the original purchaser to use the image for marketing the listing until the listing is sold or expires. If an agent loses a listing to another agent, the images may not be resold by the original agent to the new agent. The new agent would have to contact us to obtain their own license to use the images. Images may not be given to 3rd parties such as stagers, renovation companies etc. These 3rd parties would need to contact us to obtain their own license for the images.

Can I resell the images?

No, images may not be resold by the original agent to a new agent. The new agent would have to contact us to obtain their own license to use the images.

Can the sellers be home during the photography session?

Absolutely. It’s your seller’s home, so they are free to hang out while we are doing photography. However, we can produce better photos during the limited time we are on the property when distractions are minimal. Whether you or the seller are on-site, it would be great if you ensure all staging and cleaning is done before the appointment. Also, please keep all children and pets away from equipment during the appointment.

Virtual Tour Slideshow

Can I add additional images to my virtual tour slideshow?

We do not add additional images to the virtual tours that are not taken by our photographers. We do this due to copyright law and the images must be of certain quality. If the images are not post processed correctly then the images appear pixelated and distorted in the tour. If there is something that you want to make sure is included in the tour just let us know when you are booking your appointment and the photographer will make sure that take a picture of it. The benefit of this is that you have a high quality, consistent marketing piece for your real estate listing.

Can my virtual tour slideshow be added to MLS?

Yes, the non-branded version can be added to MLS. Add the Non-Branded Link to MLS prior to making your listing live.
