Real Actual Listing Photos: Driveby, Radioactive, Timestamp

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.

Don’t forget to check out Looney Listingthroughout the month for similar amusing listing photos from all around the country.

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 enjoy a collection of odd listing photos submitted by readers and found by yours truly.

Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.

14555 31st Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155“Property is located just far enough away from 145th and Lake City Way to make it a desirable project.”

And also just far enough away to make the listing agent run out of time to actually get out of his car to take any photos of the home. Spotted by Aaron W.

5119 27th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105“Legal duplex updated w/ new kitchens, plumbing, wiring.”

Neat! I’ve always wanted a glowing, radioactive dining room.

13319 1st Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125“Location ideal for: home care, students attending nearby schools, first time buyers or investors.”

It’s hard to tell on the small photo, but there appears to be a power cord running from beneath the bed to under the mattress. Um. What. Also: nice hat.

22615 Pioneer Hwy, Stanwood, WA 98292“Classical early 1900 Farm House with large level lot in the town of Silvana famous for “Silvana Meats” just up the road!”

The shot above is what the home looks like after you’ve eaten some famous “Silvana Meats” that have been sitting out way too long.

10426 19th Ave SW Seattle, WA 98146“Don’t miss this diamond in the rough.”

Guess who couldn’t figure out how to turn off the time/date stamp on their camera? No problem, just fix it in MS Paint!

1102 Taylor Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109“…custom tile bathroom and Playhouse’s signature modern kitchen tile backsplash & custom cabinetry.”

Okay this one is a dupe from Looney Listing, but it was too good not to share here. Can’t say I’ve ever seen a dinner table staged with rubber chickens before.

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.
