It's called LAZY. Lack of concern for your sellers is terrible. The seller listed their house with that particular agent in the hope that they would get the job done. If there are no pictures I usually don't even send the listing info to my buyers. These agents are doing their customers a disservice, and in most cases the seller doesn't know what's on the listing.
(once saw a photo of a hot water heater..........what does that tell you about the house!)
But..............a coffee pot as the front photo?
Well...........was it at least a high end one ? Please don't say it was just a Mr Coffee!
I saw anything and everything from tiny thumbnails or no image (like is an issues these days to snap a picture even with your phone!) to large photos with cockroaches on the door frame. MLS is supposed to auto correct most of the crucial errors however its not always being corrected.
I am always extremely detailed when inputting the listing, I always have 20+ pictures, video trailer and additional site to see the sizzle video of the property. I guess there are agents and there are agents :)
Keep up your good work and IT WILL be recognized! BTW we just opened a real estate boutique in Coral Gables at Ponce De Leon, so if you would ever be looking for a high standards brokerage you are always welcome!!! :)
