How long do you keep my images on file?

The links to download high resolution images in your iGuide Report are active for 2 weeks. We recommend that our clients download copies of these images immediately. The gallery images on the iGuide itself will stay active for 1 year.

Can you show me how to use the Feature Sheet Creator?

Yes, click here to see a start-to-finish tutorial outlining the steps to create your feature sheets

You offer a feature sheet creator. Do you also print feature sheets?

No, at this time we do not print feature sheets. The feature sheet creator included with every iGuide allows you to easily create your own feature sheets using pre-loaded images, floorplans, and contact information taken directly from your iGuide. The feature sheets are exported in PDF format for you to send to your printer.

Can I use the iGuide on my own website?

Yes. You are encouraged to use the links we provide in your online marketing. Each iGuide also includes an embedding tool that provides code that can be used to embed the iGuide directly in your website

What is your cancellation policy?

Same day cancellation/no-show incurs a fee of $75 plus taxes. This will also be applied if the photographer can not start shooting within 15 minutes of the appointment start time. Please note that we do not take responsibility for the weather – you have the option of rescheduling the appointment outside the cancellation window at no charge or booking a second appointment for the capture of exterior images at a cost of $79 plus taxes.

Are the links you provide MLS compliant? If so, do you upload to MLS?

The iGuide provides custom branded links for your marketing purposes, as well as un-branded links for use on MLS and other professional home listing portals. We do not upload to these listing services.

What is the YouTube Image Slideshow?

Using images from your iGuide shoot, we compile a slideshow video for use on YouTube and in other online marketing. You will receive a link to your video on YouTube as well as the video file for upload to your own channel or website. You can see an example here. Our standard video slideshow includes music, a title screen (“Welcome to [ADDRESS]”), and a closing screen (“[NAME], [TITLE], [BROKERAGE], [WEBSITE]”). If you would like a custom solution, please contact us.

What is the iGuide Portal?
If you like, you can sign up to the Portal (manage.youriguide.com) which will allow you to rename room labels, organize your photo galleries and lock your iGuides. You can download a PDF here which explains some of the features that are available to you.
We will need to know which email address you used to sign up with so we can assign your properties to your account and grant you access. For future iGuides please let us know at the time of booking so we can grant access.
