A very short agent…

I understand an artistic photo… But this agent went overboard with low angle shots.
We start with a very special light fixture in the hall

Again, I could understand one of two low angle photos. But more than half of the photos for this listing were like the ones above.

Photos should give a buyer a realistic idea of what the home looks and feels like.

I don’t think these do the job well.

These both struck me as really odd and funny.

A vacant room with Hats hanging on the wall. Why?

And this kid. I’d like to think he is really happy.

But as the parent of two toddlers i have to ask,  maybe he just has to pee?

 

 

Again,  I’m always surprised to see what agents choose to post on the MLS.

Hello Lady…

MLS photos with people in them are not unusual. Most of the time its a mistake.
Some one is reflected in a mirror or just on the edge of the photo!

This one is just so obvious!

Odd Odds and ends

Some photos don’t fall into any category….

I don't think I would have posted this one even if it was rotated 90 degrees....

I went to see this one in person... the home was vacant except for the M&M lady - cute or strange?

The giant bears just made me laugh... It did not make me think about living in the house.

Photos of Photos…

I was amazed at this one… the agent took photos of the photos they opened on the computer.

See the text on the above left?

Note the open windows and icons at the bottom right!

And there is the text of a website on the right side.

 

Some one needs to teach them how to “Right Click”  ;-)

Cats and Dogs…

One Dog Lounging around the pool…

 

Bonus- Two Dogs1

Bonus- Two Dogs Inside!
