Thanks to the good folks at Diverse Solutions (our MLS/IDX search provider), and the ever-growing wisdom of ARMLS (our MLS service), those using our Phoenix home search system now get to view much larger and higher resolution photos when performing home searches.
If you view full size photos, you’re now treated to large (640×425) images as opposed to the tiny photos previously served up.
This is a very good thing.
How do you see full-size photos?
You’ll see a screen like this one. Click “View full size photos” (where the arrow is pointing). While you are there, note the items in the red box ”“ you can also print the listing, save it as a PDF file, email it to yourself or anyone you’d like, get a direct link to it, or bookmark it. You can also contact us too for more info or to schedule a showing.
But for now, click the full size photos link and you’ll get a nifty window on your screen with a large, hi-res photo like this:
Note: these screen shots have been shrunk significantly to fit on the blog page. The actual photos are much larger (about 4x the shown size).
You can click on the smaller photos below the large one to see them in all their glory.
Unfortunately, our MLS currently only allows six photos to be uploaded. Happily, that all changes on July 28 when our new MLS provider FlexMLS allows, get this, unlimited photos to be uploaded.
And of course the photo quality is completely dependent on the one taking the pictures. (We use Shannon, who actually gets paid to take pictures of everything from babies, to sculptures to real estate. She’s a great agent too!)
So dive on in. Relish the screen filling photos. It should make your on-line home search better and easier. And if you happen to find a particularly bad MLS photo, give Athol a shout”¦.
