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, just a series of odd photos that readers and I have spotted on Seattle-area listings north of downtown.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Watch Eagles, Blue Herons, Trumpeter Swans and Snow Geese winter in the Skagit River Delta.”
What can I even add to this kind of… majesty? Spotted by wreckingbull. This is definitely a contender for Listing Photo of the Year.
“Walk to Grasslawn Park, Bridle Trails shopping, and Bellevue Golf course.”
Nice… um… poolawn. Spotted by Danny.
“Straight out of a Thomas Kinkade painting this classic English Tudor will welcome you home for years to come.”
I’ve cropped this one rather than resizing it, so you can see the bizarre portion of the photo at full-size. I am seriously perplexed about what exactly I’m looking at here. Is it a full-sized clear glass sculpture of a man? Some sort of photo processing artifact? The ghost of Thomas Kinkade come to haunt the listing agent for shamelessly exploiting his name? Whatever it is, it’s weird and unsettling.
“Tired of looking for parking after a long day of work? Why not own your own spot and quit circling the block!”
Yup, it’s a parking spot. On the MLS. With 12 photos.
“…opportunity awaits in this 4,400 sq ft lot zoned L3. Future Townhome site feasibility available for review.”
Can you feel the opportunity? I can feel it.
“Sale include plan designed by architect James Rudolph.”
Shown with the original choice of cropping. Perhaps they intentionally made it small because they were afraid someone might steal James Rudolph’s work?
Let me know if you have an idea for a future “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
