The information is coming directly from the MLS, and cannot, to my knowledge, be removed by the current owner request. Talk to your agent to see if there is anything that can be done, but the listing, theoretically, belongs to the listing agent.

Many of the 3rd party websites such as Trulia will respond to requests to remove the pictures after the home is sold. However the information has been spread to thousands of local agents and real estate companies. It is essentially impossible to remove them from the internet.

If there are only a couple websites that you are particularly bothered by contact the listing agent and see if he can get the web post changed.

Grace is correct.

When the property was listed the listing agreement gave the agents permission to market with photos. The contract to purchase, Page 6 Item 19 also states that the buyer understands Brokers are authorized to report to the MLS….

Once something is syndicated into the MLS it is really hard to pull them all back. If you are apposed to the photos, you can try contacting the Listing Agent who in turn would need to request the MLS to make the changes. There is no guarantee that sites like Trulia, Movoto, Realtor.com, Homes.Com, Zillow, Google, Yahoo, etc… will be updated.

All the best to you.
