I leave the photos so that when I give another potential seller a market evaluation, I can show them what other homes in the area look like similar to theirs. If I see that someone else is using my photos, I report it.

Katina,

Most MLS archive them.  Our clients just keep the first photo on their sold page.  Many people want privacy, and after the sale the new owners don't want their home on the World Wide Web.  A
