Captions that Convert: How to Create Killer MLS Descriptions for Any Listing




Studies show that MLS photos with captions that include three key elements—hook, target audience identifier, and emotional appeal—increase viewer engagement rates by up to 60%. These elements work together to create compelling and effective property descriptions.


  • Hook: The initial part of a caption that grabs the reader's attention and compels them to engage with the listing further.

  • Target Audience Identifier: Helps potential customers quickly recognize that the listing suits their needs or desires, creating a sense of exclusivity.

  • Emotional Appeal: Engages the reader's emotions. Most people initially decide what they engage with based on sensory or emotional responses, so appealing to emotions creates a stronger connection.


Using these principles, here are 15 short examples of MLS descriptions that incorporate these three key elements to effectively engage potential buyers.
