How many images can I upload for each property?
There is no limit on the number of photos per property, and photos can be included in your ad for no additional charge.

These photos can include the exterior and interior of the home, floor plans, etc. Remember, the important thing is the quality of the pictures over quantity. Useful and accurate pictures are what get the house rented.
If I get my house rented, can I save my leftover credits?

How can I save with multiple properties?
At Triangleplace.com, the credits in your account are not specific to any one property - you can use them for any of your listings. Your advertising dollar pays for only what you have used.
