Are you stealing your real estate marketing photos?

I’m still surprised by the fact that agents are still surprised by the fact that they can’t download random pictures from the internet and use them in their marketing.

Those aren’t your photos…

I get it. As a real estate agent, you need lots of lifestyle images.

You need them for your social media posts, Facebook ads, website images, and even blog posts.

Someone in one of my Facebook groups asked where the best place is to get cute icons for her Instagram Highlights. And someone else replied, “Oh, I just screenshotted mine from Pinterest.”


That’s called stealing.

If you don’t have rights to the photos, you can’t use them – unless you have a high-risk tolerance and don’t mind being sued. Yikes!

All of your favorite bloggers, Instagrammers, celebrities, and even your favorite news stations are all using stock photo libraries.

I’ve got 3 options for you: 

  1. Free Sites – I love all of these sites because they are beautiful, modern, lifestyle images that have been taken by professional photographers.
