    Announcing our “MLS-compliant” facade images!

    - by Sierra Freeman

    We’ve made it a little easier to follow this particular guideline by automatically providing MLS-compliant facade images. While processing the photos from your photoshoot, our editors will keep an eye out for any exterior shots which include agent contact information (usually featured on a “For Sale” sign out front or a sign hung in a window). If the team sees any of these signs, they will provide a version of that photo with the offending information blurred out (free of charge!).
