What is MyYour?

Why is MyYour different from an agency?

MyYour is not an agency. MyYour members contact each other directly.

How does the keyword search work?

Keywords are assigned to listings by the MyYour team. This ensures that listings show up in relevant searches.

You choose which shoots you accept. You are free to edit your listing, or account at any time.

For example, has that blue sofa been changed to red?

Photos are the most important part of your listing on MyYour. Taking professional looking photos is now easier than ever as most phones will take good quality images.

We do, however, have some top tips on how to take great photos on our blog.

How many images can I add?

The more photos the better! The number of images you can upload depends on the package you have chosen. Basic listings allow space for five photos, while Premium has room for twenty. The more you show prospective clients of your property/vehicle the more desirable they are likely to find it.
