It is apparent that your home sold already and you do not wish to have your photos posted any longer.
I would advise you to contact this web site directly to see if they can remove the interior photos. If they are unable to assist, you may want to contact the previous listing agent to see if it is still posted in their account directly and if it can be updated properly.

Contact your listing agent but I would like to advise that it would be a terrible mistake! Home seekers are going to determine the houses they want to visit based on the pictures they see online(as well as pricing). By removing those pictures, you are losing your first impression, in your quest to sell your home. Personally, when I am searching the MLS for homes for my buyer, I skip the homes with only one picture! There is just nothing drawing us to that home. Instead of showcasing the property, they are hiding it! It really does not take much to take a picture and the MLS allows 25 of them so utilize it to your advantage.

Please call me at my office 215-725-5700 X49 I have a few simple questions like Is your home for sale, Did you sing a listing contract that allows for the pictures to be on the internet? I would be glad to discuss this with you at no charge.

Phil,

Not to speak for the OP, but it looks like they recently purchased the home a few months ago, and the photos remain from the original listing.

Sites like this have their information fed to them through the MLS. They own the rights to those photos. They are also part of the public record.

The listing agent may remove them from the MLS, but that could affect property values. How? Appraisers rely on photos of sold homes when doing their comparable analyses to help determine the value of other homes.

The LISTING agent is the one who has the ability to make this change in Trend, not the buyer's agent. Contact YOUR agent for that person's info and send them a certified letter at the Brokerage address with your request. Follow up.
