Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #298

December 27th, 2008

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.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #287

This could have been a decent photo, but unfortunately it captures too much of the ceiling and leaves the buyer wondering what the kitchen looks like. Always remember to review your photos before leaving the house so you don’t have to upload ones like this. Buyers expect more.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #286

It's Clutterific!

It's Clutterific!

Wow. As I always say, it’s not my place to poke fun at the state of people’s homes on the Internet. However, I do believe that as a REALTOR®, it’s my job to let a client know when they need to tidy up the kitchen, and I won’t take pictures until it’s done. Other than that, one could argue that the better spot to shoot this kitchen would have been from the doors on the left of the photo.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #280

December 9th, 2008

Alright. So you can easily see most of what’s wrong with the picture: crooked, poor composition, and that wall is really in the way. But the worst thing is that this house was listed at over $600,000 and this is the ONLY picture on the listing.

Stainless appliances: $2000.

Granite Countertops: $4500.

Asking Price: $1.5 Million

5 crooked photos on the listing including this one featuring 30% kitchen and 70% wall?

Priceless.

Spacious Kitchen... er...Laundry Room....er...Living Room

Spacious Kitchen.?.. er...Laundry Room?....er...Living Room?

I don’t like to pick on people’s decor or design. So let’s not call this a horrible MLS photo. It certainly is odd though!

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #265

November 24th, 2008

I can see what the REALTOR® is trying to do here – display the cabinets with the pull-out drawers for storage. It’s a neat idea, but I think it just looks messy. I think most buyers would prefer a different shot from the same spot in the room, a little higher, with the doors closed, which would take in most of the kitchen.

Use that preview function! This could have been re-shot so it was straight and that would have solved most of the problem. Standing a little further back or investing in a wide-angle lens would have also helped.

For Sale: Stretch Armstrong's Condo

For Sale: Stretch Armstrong's Place

Obviously something has gone horrible wrong with this photo. Perhaps the REALTOR® cropped the photo and it got stretched by the MLS system? Whatever the case, it’s an odd way of stretching the truth about the place. OK, sorry for that.

A Politician's Kitchen? Get it - crooked?!?

A Politician's Kitchen? Get it - Crooked!!?

At least they capture most of this kitchen in the shot, which is good. But it would have looked better if the REALTOR® used a simple image editor to crop the photo to remove from the frame the walls on the sides and straighten out the picture.
