Why bother rushing the new lisiting to MLS when the photos are not ready? Is there some advantage to getting an earlier listing date, or other benefit i am missing, Rather than have the broker wait two more days and put together a description that looks buttoned up with photos?
Brokers, please enlighten me about this practice. As a buyer, I like to see the pics, not just number of bedrooms and address.
As a real estate photographer, I agree.
As a broker, sometimes there are valid reasons.
As a buyer, if I know the building, I don't necc. need photos right away. If it sounds like a good deal based on the description, I'll at least call the owner/broker for more info.
In general, of course photos help.
@ Daisy ... don't you believe EVERYTHING thats put on the INTERNET ??
I could be wrong here, but I believe there is a requirement that within x hours or days of signing a listing, a REBNY broker/age is required to post the listing regardless of whether photos or floor plan are ready.
KW has it exactly right. It's a violation of REBNY rules to sit on a listing until the photos (which generally take 72 hours) are ready.

KW & Ali are both correct.
"24 hours unless..." - Article I, Sec. 5 (pg.5 of pdf)

Ali - If you ever need photos in < 72 hours, contact me. I usually have a 2 day turnaround.
This listing (I saw it) sold in a few days before photos were listed.
the broker just said "if you know the building the apartment is in itsoriginal state"
I think the rule was meant to prevent brokers from hiding the listing and making it available only to their brokere houses oher agents for a time. This did nothing to serve the client. If e client truly doesnt want the listing to go up the client can wait to sign the agreement and keep it as a "pocket" listing for the broker until things are all ready.
Sorry: " their brokerage house's other agents" is what i meant.
Street easy is not MLS you moron
