When I was doing BPO's, a few years ago, they would add an extra $10-15 bucks for interior shots so I had to make an appointment to get in with the resident. I think the bank requesting them just wanted to see what the inside looks like for their own knowledge more so than for a valuation reason. I still had to go back to the office and dig up comps for active and solds. When I did interior shots it rarely made any difference to the value I came up with as opposed to the ones where I drove by and took 5-6 pictures from the street. If the company requesting the photos does not say the agent had to do it then I see no problem in it since the person is not there to talk price or anything else that requires a license. There were a lot of rules but I don't recall them saying I was the one who had to go in the house, they just wanted a picture of all bedrooms, kitchen and living room. It's like hiring a home inspector, they take pictures inside too.
