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.
There is no particular single theme this month, although I did group this month’s photos into similarly-themed pairs.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“nestled & surrounded by nature, this urban retreat has many amenities…”
…but we’re not going to show you any of them. Just this one grainy photo of the moon.
“Home is currently uninhabitable.”
And creepy. Did we mention creepy? Because it’s definitely also creepy.
“It is move in ready but will need some TLC to make it shine.”
Buyer must supply their own Hazmat crew.
“…not a complete fixer but could use new paint and repair work to some areas of the home.”
Nothing gets me excited about a listing like the phrase “not a complete fixer.” Except for maybe piles and piles of random junk strewn throughout the house.
“250 sf rooftop VIEW deck! Only OVER THE WATER UNITS on Lake Union!”
Also… BALD EAGLE! And unlike the home in September’s installment, this eagle appears to be legit, not Photoshop (though the view at right is cropped from the original).
“The extraordinarily private & peaceful setting…”
When I think “private and peaceful,” the first thing I think of is military planes in formation buzzing my home every year.
Let me know if you have an idea for a future “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme, and be sure to check out Looney Listing for listing photo amusement throughout the month.
