Speaking of poorly-marketed bank-owned listings…
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.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Lush, mature landscaping outside.”
I think the photo of that front lawn speaks for itself, but apparently the listing agent didn’t agree.
“Home is very desirable easy going”
The listing agent for this home took 8 photos, each more unbelievably out of focus than the one before.
“This cutie is close to all of the amenities”
…and by “amenities,” I mean large, dense trees, of course.
ABANDON SHIP! SHE’S GOING DOWN! ABANDON SHIP!
“Charming opportunity in North Everett awaits your buyers.”
I think “awaits your buyers” isn’t quite the right phrase to describe what’s going on here. I’d go with “lurks sinisterly in the shadows.” Photo 4 in this set is pretty great too.
“Features a formal living room with valuted ceilings, bay window with seating area.”
…oh, and a possessed kitchen. Did we mention the possessed kitchen? Oh well, they’ll find out about it soon enough on their own.
Let me know if you have an idea for another “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
