Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #263

November 22nd, 2008

...

...

Another beauty courtesy of downtown Vancouver condo specialist Ian Watt. It looks like nice marble, but what the hell is it? Is this the floor or a counter top? Is this in the suite or the building’s lobby, or is this what the exterior is decked out in? We can’t tell from this photo; there is no context!

That SINKing Feeling

That SINKing Feeling

Nice sink, but what does the rest of the bathroom or house look like? This was one of several close-up shots of fixtures in the home. Buyers want context. They want to see where they’re going to fit their furniture, or what new pieces they might need to buy before moving in. They can’t get that from a close-up of the sink.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #226

October 16th, 2008

I’m not sure what the point of this photo is. What value does it bring to a buyer? As the listings continue to pile up, make sure your photos truly showcase your listings! Half of what appears to be a door (but could be a window, who knows) doesn’t do this. I’d be frustrated if I was a buyer looking in this price range and came across this – and would promptly move on to the next listing. Several of the photos on the listing were similar (close-ups of stained glass, fixtures, etc).

Cornered Again!

Cornered Again!

I think we can all agree that this tight shot of these dated cupboards does nothing to show us the layout of the kitchen. From the looks of the photo, the kitchen looks large enough to be adequately photographed without a wide-angle lens, so all that is needed here is to stand back and shoot from a distance.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #190

September 10th, 2008

Not that it’s a horrible shot per se, but it was one of only three pictures on the listing, two of which were of the fireplace. Not exactly what I’d call showcasing a listing!

Clutter Close-Up

Clutter Close-Up

Too busy and too close is the problem here. It’s hard for the viewer to get an idea of the size and shape of this room. A better choice would be to de-clutter it a little, stand back, and also shoot at more of an angle to give some depth perception to the picture.
