Primary Photo Requirement February 4, 2013

Beginning February 4th Paragon will require that you upload a primary photo before you can save a new listing. As mentioned in previous announcements, uploading a primary photo has never been easier! Upload it directly from the listing input or maintenance pages.

Remember, if you want to input your listing, but have not yet obtained the photo, you may enter the information and “Partial” save. Partial save is exactly what it sounds like; it is a way to save your work before you have completed it. A listing “partially” saved is not released as Active and is not viewable by other Members. A partial listing does not fulfill the requirement of a full listing, so remember you must complete the listing, upload the photo and “Save” within 48 hours of executing a listing agreement.

  1. This is a great addition to Paragon. I always had trouble with a new listing without at least one photo. And maybe I am wrong, but it sure seems like a waste of good marketing to post a new listing without a photo.

  2. I was hoping the Board would go a step further and make the primary picture an exterior front view. There has been a growing trend to post the gourmet kitchen, or the view of Tahoe. That’s fine as an additional pic, but primary should ALWAYS be an exterior pic of the front.

  3. Is it still applicable, that the use of pictures from previous agent’s listings cannot be used without the listing agents written permission? If so these regulations should be explained to members. Thank you

    • Hi Pam,
      You are correct! Copying a photograph, a drawing or a virtual tour from another listing for use on your own listing, regardless of the listing status, is prohibited unless written permission is obtained from the member who originally loaded it/them into the system. A copy of the written permission must be submitted within 48 hours of NNRMLS request.
      This information can be found in Section E of the Northern Nevada Regional MLS Rules & Regulations. The section is called “Listing Input Requirements” and the subsection that specifically addresses photo upload rules is “d)”.
      Thanks for you comment!
