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.
This month I got enough submissions from readers via email that our theme is reader-submitted photos. Thanks for the submissions, keep them coming!
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Washer/dryer, on-demand hot water, sub zero refer, Melie dishwasher and great neighbors & an awesome community!”
Oddly, the listing agent forgot to mention the creepy hand that comes out of the closet in the laundry room and holds the door open. Also, I didn’t know Sub-Zero did drug paraphernalia.
“Very open floor plan, and lots of windows bring the natural light in.”
Yeah, everything about that photo just screams “natural” to me.
“Turn of the century style in this 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, arched doorways, hardwood flooring, wood fireplace…”
The listing doesn’t mention it, but I really hope the glowing mystery toys are included in the price.
“Sold with plans and permits to build new or buy as fixer as is…”
It’s called staging. Buyers like to be able to imagine themselves living in your home.
“Unique, BuiltGreen, Energy Star, Cust Cabs, Hydronic “in Floor” Heat, Thermobalance Valves, and Dedicated Heat Recovery, give this Enviro Safe home a top 4 Star rating.”
Wait, am I buying a house or a box of files with some free caulk thrown in? Also, that description is sporting some serious buzzword overload. Yikes.
“Estate Properties are exceptional by definition and this remarkable estate is without peer.”
Wait, I’m confused again. Am I buying a house or a baseball field? Oh, both? Well all right then.
Let me know if you have an idea for the next “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
