It’s been way too long since our last installment of Real Actual Listing Photos. Time for another! 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.
If you want a more steady dosage of crazy listing photos, tune into Looney Listing, which is updated five times as a week with homes from all across the country. 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.
“Cosmetic charmer… newer hot water tank! …pie cooling station. …garage door opener!”
I live just a few miles from this home and I can confirm that the grass definitely glows radioactive green here in Everett. Wait, what?
“Nice, partially finished basement.”
The whole set of photos here is terrifying, but… um… is that a person hiding under the sheets on the bed? What the heck?!? Found by Christian W.
“You will feel right at home”
“You will feel right at home,” you know, if your home is extremely poorly lit and has random clutter just lying all over the place. And also you forgot to put on your glasses so everything looks blurry. Even after all these years I am still amazed at how little effort some listing agents will put into earning their 3% commission (which would be nearly $17,000 on this listing).
“house features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room, family room, spacious attic loft upstairs, bonus room, 3 car garage”
The reason they’re so descriptive in the text? Two tiny photos of the street and a fence is all they bothered to upload.
“wake up to the beautiful Stipek Park”
Nothing says “superior real estate service” like uploading a screenshot of Google Earth as your primary listing photo.
“May be viewed from the Road but no known access to the actual property.”
Okay, but did that really mean you could only upload a few horribly blurry photos with completely illegible captions? What kind of camera is even capable of taking photos that bad? Found by Beth T.
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.
