It’s time for another installment of Real Actual Listing Photos. Once a month (or so) I round up some of the most bizarre listing photos from around the Seattle area and post them here, with brief excerpts from the real actual listing description, and probably a bit of snarky commentary.
The idea for this series stems from the ongoing forum thread Detrimental Listing Photos, which is where you should post your nominations for next month’s Real Actual Listing Photos post.
No particular theme this month, other than the usual theme of bizarre and disturbing listing photos.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“…large entertaining size deck overlooking in-ground pool and views. Must see!”
I think I’ve seen enough already. Ouch. My eyes. Hat tip to Marlow Harris on this one.
“The best of indoor/outdoor living…”
Including a front-row seat to the apocalypse!
“The spacious kitchen features plenty of counter space…”
Yes, the listing agent actually called this a “spacious kitchen.” Also note the dehumidifier sitting in the bathtub in photo #3. Yowza.
“Bring your creativity and restore this timeless home to its former splendor.”
It would appear that whoever processed these photos forgot to delete a layer of their creativity before they closed Photoshop.
“Gorgeous split level home in the heart of Kirkland.”
Okay, first, that’s not a split-level, it’s a split-entry, and “gorgeous split-entry” is an oxymoron. As for the photo, there is just so much going on here. The glowing dish of radiation on the end table, the sofa directly in front of the fireplace… but my favorite touch is the classy art above the fireplace. NICE.
“24 hour concierge services, rooftop terraces, yoga studio & well appointed gym complete this Villa in the sky.”
See, if we cleverly place a poster of Einstein in our primary listing photo, maybe the buyer will feel smart for spending 17% more than we paid in 2009. Better make sure it says his name in big bold print though, just in case they don’t get it.
Let me know if you have an idea for the next “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
