36 Best Places to get Free Images For Real Estate Webistes

This image was found in Wikimedia Commons and is considered “Public Domain” and therefore no attribution is needed.

You can not use an image you find on Google Images as free images for real estate websites!

If you do… there is a chance that someone will sue you.  If they sue you it will be for way more money than you feel that they deserve and there is a good chance they will win.  It is called Copyright Infringement and it is serious business.

Also be careful of my headline; Free Images For Real Estate Websites.  As they say, “there is no such thing as a free lunch”.

No images are truly free.  You either pay in your own time to take them, money and buy them, or you have to give credit to the creator of the image.  It might be better to call these Legal Images.

This list contains links to sites from which you do not need to pay money, or time, but you do need to pay homeage.  You do this by either mentioning the creators name or adding a link on your site to the creator, called attribution.

It depends on what the creator wants and should be disclosed on each site. Some sites are monetized through advertising and do not require any links or mentions.

Most of these sites rely on a set of rules called the “Creative Commons“.

 

Paid High-Res, Royalty-Free, Stock Image Source

If you are looking for a consistent source of images that are better in quality and are willing to pay a small fee I suggest Adobe Stock.

For $29 a month you can access 10 images, or $2.90 an image.  Adobe bought out my favorite, Dollar photo club where every image was a dollar and raised it.  However, the quality of the images is far superior to any of the free image sources below.
