Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #298

December 27th, 2008

12272008

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!

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!

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 #291

This one is just kind of random and weird. It’s kind of a neat photo, but I’m all about context. Where is this? What’s going on here? If it was one of a few shots of the back/front porch/yard/whatever it is it would be better, but it was one of only 5 or 6 shots of the whole house on the listing.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #285

December 14th, 2008

Deja Vu?

Deja Vu?

Yesterday’s photo looked almost exactly like this! Perhaps close-up shots of towels and their reflection in a mirror is some sort of consumer trend that I’m not aware of. For the same reasons as yesterday, this photo is equally horrible.

So basically, the only interesting parts of this photo are those towels and that picture on the wall, none of which will likely be included with the home. If not for the mirror and towels, one might have trouble telling that this was a bathroom. Always use a wide angle lens for bathroom shots, or just avoid them, unless it’s a huge spa-like cavernous room.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #283

December 12th, 2008

12122008There really isn’t a whole lot to say about this one. It’s plain to see that this is a blurry, fuzzy image of some kind of room and its light fixture missing a globe.

Just under the wire on this one!

Laundry rooms never ever look good, and this ugly old stacker does nothing to show off this place’s potential in the sea of other condominium listings on the market today. At the very least, shoot it vertically and try and show some context too, but I would recommend you just leave it out altogether.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #281

December 10th, 2008

This is just weird. Crooked, out of context, and it appears that this was a vertical (portrait) oriented shot that has been stretched to fit a horizontal (landscape) format.

Door Number One, Door Number One, or Door Number One?

Door Number One, Door Number One, or Door Number One?

That is one beautiful door, I’m so glad it is featured so prominently on this listing. Let me call my agent right away to get me in there! Seriously though, what value does this bring to a buyer, and how does it help your seller? Gone are the days of multiple offers on day one – sharpen your pencil and improve your marketing to better serve your clients!
