Building Your Business with Long & Foster

Updates on company tools & industry technology

New Photo Requirement for YouTube Listing Videos

To help better promote Long & Foster agents’ listings online, we’ve changed the photo require­ments for our YouTube listing videos. Now, all Long & Foster listings require only a minimum of 25 photos to qualify for a free YouTube video. Previously, agents in select regions had to post 40 or more photos to their MLS for the listing video to be free.

Zillow to End Manually Posted Property Listings

Effective May 1, Zillow will no longer allow agents to enter property listings to their system manually. As you may know, Long & Foster established a partnership with Zillow in 2015 to ensure our listings were being syn­dicated to their site, and we will continue our partnership with them for the foreseeable future. As such, your listings will continue to be syndicated to Zillow and no action is required on your part.
