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 theme this month, just a random assortment of high quality sales material. Most of these were submitted by readers. Thanks, and keep them coming.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Value in the land”
The only question I care about isn’t addressed in the listing: Is the Target shopping cart included?
“waiting for new owner to open up sound & mountain view.”
Is it just me or does this photo make it look like the interior of the house and the sky behind it are ON FIRE?
“Don’t miss this lovely Magnolia home on a quiet street.”
Note that this is the only photo on the listing. And yes, I am showing it here at full size.
“Existing home needs extensive work, either tear down or Remodel.”
So really, why would you even want to see inside, right? (Also the only photo on the listing.)
“Improvements in last 5yrs: high efficiency furnace, earthquake retrofit, refinished hardwood floors, copper pipes, fresh paint.”
Hmm, no mention of the black hole that appears to be sucking this home into oblivion. (Someone needs to step away from Photoshop’s auto-stitch panorama feature.)
“Warm & inviting, house sits back from WMW and offers large living spaces…”
That is one odd staging job. Best I can tell, sitting on the floor there is a toy dinosaur, on top of a VCR, next to an in-progress game of Scrabble.
Let me know if you have an idea for the next “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
