Get Started Now!
Your journey with Velocity REOs starts with your submission of an initial set of seven real estate photo samples. Your “set” of photographs will help us determine if you are capable of taking our typical real estate photographs. Our process department will determine if:
• You can follow our instructions.
• You can do it in a timely manner.
• Your images meet our requirements.
Please pay close attention to the details. Not everyone submitting their photo set will be approved. To help you with this process, we have posted a video to guide you through your initial photo set. We highly recommend you watch before you begin.



As you submit your photo samples, here are some finer points to remember:

  • All photos must be clear and level. Blurry photos will be instantly discarded.

  • Choose one property - do not mix 2 or more different addresses. In other words, if the address is 1234 Main Street, we need all 7 photos to match this one address.

  • Please adjust the settings of your camera so that the resolution is no more than 1600 x 1200. Anything higher will only slow down your upload speed and may cause time out issues.

  • Your car should not be in any of the photos. In other words, if you take the photos from inside your car, we should not see any part of the car in the photos. This includes the edges of your windows, dashboard, any glass reflections or rear-view mirrors. Taking a photo through a closed car window may cause reflections from what is inside your car. We will reject any photo with any reflections.

  • All photos must be taken in landscape orientation - in other words, the image must be wider than taller - from left to right as compared to up and down. If you provide us with a photo in portrait orientation, your entire set will be rejected.

  • Photos must be taken during the day.

  • Address verification and street signs should be as close and clear as possible.

  • Please do not supply the photos with a date stamp. We will never request you take any photo with a date stamp.

  • Our clients rely on us for the clearest, most precise and up-to-standard property images. So, as a representative for Velocity REOs, you have a very important role in the delivery of our photography/inspection services program.

We continuously have excellent field photography jobs, and are always on the look-out for talented individuals who are looking for an exciting career in field photography/evaluation services. To help you with this process, we have posted a video to guide you through your initial photo set. We highly recommend you watch before you begin.

    Thank you and good luck!


    Front of the house
    Please make sure you do not zoom too close to the house.


    Right side of the house (front must also be viewable)

    The Front should also be viewable - this goes for all residential brokers price opinion images. This photo often causes contractors confusion. The solution is to go across the street from the property, stand on the side of the house and photograph the property with the side of the house and the front also included.


    Left side of the house (front must also be viewable)

    The Front should also be viewable - this goes for all residential brokers price opinion images. This photo often causes contractors confusion. The solution is to go across the street from the property, stand on the side of the house and photograph the property with the side of the house and the front also included.


    Address verification (on mailbox, curb or on house)

    Keep in mind that we need to be able to read it. For real orders, if the subject property address is not able to be viewed due to faded numbers or if the address does not appear on the property, photograph the neighboring address and indicate a note in the comment section stating the reason - i.e. subject property did not have the address on it so I am including the address next door.


    Street sign

    Keep in mind that we need to be able to clearly read the sign.


    Street scene/view up

    This is used to determine the condition of the neighboring properties or views. The two photos should have both sides of the street in them. Ideally the photo should be taken from the center of the street so that you can see both sides of the street evenly. If the property is in a high traffic area, we do not expect you to stand in the middle of the street. Simply stand on the sidewalk, point the camera up/down the street and photograph it so that both sides of the street are in them. The camera should be set wide so that we can see as much as possible.

    Street scene/view down

    This is used to determine the condition of the neighboring properties or views. The two photos should have both sides of the street in them. Ideally the photo should be taken from the center of the street so that you can see both sides of the street evenly. If the property is in a high traffic area, we do not expect you to stand in the middle of the street. Simply stand on the sidewalk, point the camera up/down the street and photograph it so that both sides of the street are in them.
