While secondary photos may not be removed from the MLS, a Listing Broker may choose to have an off-market listing’s secondary photos (but not primary photos) suppressed from third-party sites. This can be done by clicking “Exclude from Consumer Websites when off-market” on the desired photos.
Primary photos must be kept on a listing for appraisals, comps, and CMAs.
MRED’s Rules and Regulations state the only reasons photos may be removed from a listing are:
To reflect a change in seasons.
To reflect improvements to the home.
To substitute a higher-quality photo of the same image.
The unauthorized removal of photos may result in a $250 fine. Photos will also be restored to the listing.
