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. 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 readers and yours truly.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Plenty of space for comfortable living…”
Everything looks like “plenty of space” when you shoot rooms from the perspective of a toddler. Found by reader ggrraahhaamm.
“Charming 1921 Tudor w/ updates that keep original style intact.”
This one sort of complements that last one, giving us the perspective of the room as it might be viewed by a giant. This might also perhaps explain the tall chairs…
“Bring your contractor to finish this incomplete home addition.”
As pointed out by Lara, the reader who spotted this gem, “started addition that wasn’t finished but they couldn’t even mow the lawn or put the shower nozzle away before taking six photos.” Real estate agents, keeping it classy.
“One carport for off-street parking add to the appeal of this property.”
The carport is apparently the main attraction, given that that’s about the only feature you can make out through the sun flares in the listing’s primary photo.
“Down your private drive you’ll find this 3br 1.5ba home with a totally new kitchen and bath, new paint and flooring, a cozy dinning area and free standing wood stove.”
How could they not mention the indoor snow machine?!? Who cares about a “cozy dinning area” when you can make it snow inside. Spotted by reader Beth Traverso.
“Solid built brick home in quiet neigh. … Use your imagination and with over 2800 square feet of space, this can be a very nice entertaining home.”
Double pool in the basement! Play some pool from inside your indoor pool! The whole set of photos on this home is classic.
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.
