Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #302

December 31st, 2008

12312008

Now, it’s nice to see what appears to be a rough-in for an additional bathroom, but I wouldn’t necessarily include it on the listing; it might scare some people off. Maybe as one of 15 or so photos, but there were only 5 or 6 on the listing in this case.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #301

December 30th, 2008

This is just a boring shot of a corner of a room. It doesn’t add any value to the buyer, and even though listings have been dropping off in the last few months, there’s still a lot of product out there. Your marketing needs to be sharp as a tack, and photos need to give a reason to the buyer to look at your listing instead of one of the many others.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #300

December 29th, 2008

One day I should go through all the 300 Horrible MLS Photos and see what percentage of them are bad bathroom shots. I’d be willing to bet at least half of them are. They are difficult because they are often the smallest rooms in the house and absolutely require a wide angle lens to shoot them.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #299

Laundry rooms are almost always too small for even a wide-angle lens, and usually are too messy to photograph anyway. I’d leave it out, especially when the laundry pair and the decor are in need of updating.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #298

Blurry, crooked and out of context because it’s too zoomed in. If not for the wine rack on top, it would be difficult to tell whether this was the kitchen or the laundry room. Take a few steps back and capture the whole room.

I hear Future Shop has TVs on sale for Boxing Day!

Shower of Power

Hope everyone had an awesome white Christmas Day yesterday and a tasty Christmas Dinner. Here is a pointless shot of a corner of a room. I really hope the REALTOR® wasn’t trying to emphasize that TV on the wall as being a selling feature!

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #296

December 25th, 2008 – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Every time you shoot a bathroom without a wide angle lens, somewhere a kitten is killed. Please, think of the kittens! It’s Christmas!

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #295

This beautiful looking shower and bathroom is another victim of a point-and-shoot camera that just can’t capture this kind of room properly. Always use a wide angle lens for bathrooms!

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #294

Too much ceiling, too little everything else. Also, crooked, and taken at night, hence the lack of light.

If you’re going to take a picture of a medicine cabinet, at least open it up and show us what kinds of medications and other potentially embarrassing items are in there ;)
