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 specific theme this month, just a collection of crazy listing photos I’ve seen in the last month.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Exquisite 5.97 Acres overlooking Puget Sound, Vashon Island & Cascade mtns!”
Previously featured on these pages for its “schizo price drops,” the Northwest Baptist Seminary campus recently got another big $500k price drop along with a new listing agent who provided a brand new set of photos (below) that are considerably less worthy of a $6.4 million listing than the previous set (above).
“This grand lady offers 24/7 doorman and valet service.”
And potted plants! Did we mention the potted plants? Not enough space in the marketing remarks? Well, throw a picture in there, then!
“Beautiful landscaping, 2 patios for entertaining, hot tub, 2 car garage, shed for yard tools all bathed in full sun from morning to sunset.”
…except of course when the sky is full of insanely-saturated HYPERCLOUDS. Needs to be viewed full size to be fully appreciated.
“…one floor condo, with new cozy carpet, gorgeous rock wall fireplace, super spacious living room…”
Nothing says “I’m earning my three percent commission” like listing photos taken with a plastic toy camera.
“Get in on the ground floor.”
Okay so this one isn’t in the Seattle area, but seriously, this was just too rich to resist.
“Nice house! Walk to the Beech!!!”
Also not in Seattle, but irresistible. $589,000 in Huntington Beach. Or should I say “Huntington Beech.”
Let me know if you have an idea for a future “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
