The primary photo is the first thing other agents (and their clients) will see when your listing pops up in their search. And the right primary photo helps you make a great first impression.

Did you know that the primary photo doesn’t have to be the front exterior of the property? As long as the front exterior of the property appears somewhere in the listing photos, you can choose whichever photo you’d like to be primary. And that makes the it the perfect opportunity to showcase a unique aspect of the property that sets it apart from the crowd.
