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

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.

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.

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.

Table this one for discussion

Table this one for discussion

It even looks like they staged this table for the photos. But the angle is too low to really appreciate it, and there is insufficient lighting.

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!

I'm not a FAN of this image...

I'm not a FAN of this image!

Everybody lives differently, and sometimes it’s hard to counsel a client to de-clutter the house before you list it, but I believe it is the agent’s responsibility to do so. In this case, just simply removing that fan that is stealing all the attention would have made a huge difference in presenting this property.

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.
