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.
Wow, it’s been over two months since the last installment of Real Actual Listing Photos. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a friendly reminder that you can find similar content three times every week from across the USA over at Looney Listing.
The idea for this series stems from the ongoing forum thread Detrimental Listing Photos. If you’ve got a nomination for a listing photo that should appear here, drop me a line.
No particular theme this month. Just enjoy a collection of odd listing photos found by yours truly.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“2BR+1BATH + BONUS ROOM”
One of just two photos the listing agent felt were necessary to share with potential buyers of this home. This is what’s called “not really trying.”
“plenty of promise … Special details”
This home is so sad even the ceiling fan blades are droopy. How is that even possible. No wait I don’t think I want to know. Keep the “special details” to yourself please.
“Why rent when you can own plus your mortgage payment will be much less than renting, hurry and go see your lender and find out what I’m talking about.”
The color, the decor, the tilt… There’s just so much to love about this photo.
“Do not enter or be near the existing structures on the site for safety precautions.”
This historical photograph apparently shows the last time this home was actually habitable.
“Home features 3 large bedrooms…”
Are they selling a bedroom here, or a cheap used bed?
“Highly Desirable Area!”
Photo shown here at full size and original focus. Clearly modern photography is woefully inadequate to capture the true desirability of this area.
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.
