Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – Corner Lots Are One Thing, But…..

The corners are exceptionally vertical. Every room has a corner, and I guess some are better than others. In fact some are so well built that they become a “feature” of the home that would make any buyer want to rush right over. Here’s two good examples.

 They invented flash bulbs in 1915

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – How Much Time Could It Take?

The Library Has Built In StorageSometimes I’m just baffled. Could it really be that difficult to stuff the newspapers into the vanity, close the door, and THEN take the picture?

At least the toilet lid is closed. I’ll give ‘em that!

Worst MLS Photo – The Funniest Worst MLS Photo Ever

Sometimes I couldn’t help doing a rerun on this one. Ask my subconscious why this photo was the setting for an argument in my dream last night.

The original caption that I used when I first published it in the old blog was

 “Sometimes “funny” is just a matter of timing. I think it’s a timing issue, and not a subtle hint at the seller’s motivation”.

If you really get off on the Worst MLS Photos, you can see the first 2 months worth of them by following this link.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – Clutter Continues To Accumulate

Cooking is so easy when the water dispenser is right there at your fingertips. The “clutter” folder just keeps swelling in size. The folder is starting to be like the clutter itself. Once it starts, it takes a real dedicated effort to clean it up. I think the best time to do it is just before the agent takes the pictures for the MLS. Sadly, I think I’m the only one who feels that way.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – It Was A Dark Dreary Home

777257_201_17Even in the daytime, the light just never penetrated to the interior of the home. Buyers just love dark and dreary. This one should go fast!

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day –

765034_201_12It’s a great idea to mop the floors,and vacuum the rugs in preparation for putting a home on the market.

 

It’s important to leave the mop, and bucket, and vacuum cleaner handy so that you can be perfect if you get a call about an upcoming showing.

 

 

 

Vaccum in the living room

 

Since we took the day off yesterday, you get a double dose today.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – Add A Splash Of Bright Color To Dress Up A Room

774528_301_20I like bright primary colors. I don’t see all the different shades of a colors. It’s a weird sort of color blindness. It gets me in trouble all the time when I call purple blue, and green brown. But Yellow is yellow! And I really appreciate it when people decorate with bright yellow.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – Lowest Priced Home In All Of Vintage Las Vegas

775797_901_53I’m going to put in an offer for for Beagle Bayley. Suddenly (at 9 years old) he figured out he’s able to leap all the way to the kitchen counter. So now my dog thinks he’s a cat. He’s “in the doghouse” now, till I can break him of the this new habit. Nothing that even vaguely resembles food is ever safe from a Beagle. I caught him trying to chew his way into the upper cabinet where the top ramen is kept.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – If All Else Fails, Shoot The Fluffy Bunny

774229_301_19We were honored by Athol Kaye in Ct. again by having him publish one of MY Worst MLS Photos that I had sent to him.

I hadn’t published it yet, so technically, he beat me to it.

He has a whole tutorial for agents on his site about what’s a good picture and what’s not.

I share it with you. But the money quote from Rule Three: Just take lots of shots:

“Not only that, you should shoot anything that remotely qualifies as a “feature”. Fancy doorknob? Yes shoot it. Wine rack? Shoot it. Gold fixtures in the bathroom? Sweet fluffy bunnies you should shoot them. These can become the accent shots that break up a virtual tour from endless room wide shots.”

This might be a little too much of an “insider joke” but if you read his “rules”, you’ll get it too.

You can help make the real estate photo world a little better also

1) If you find something while browsing the internet for real estate listings, cut and paste it into an email and send it to me.

2) If you know someone whose home is for sale, give them a critique if their agent published pictures I’d love to make fun of.

3) If you’re going to list your home, ask the agent for copies of ALL his previous listings (including pictures). Sellers should know how their agent will market the home.

4) If you know someone who’s thinking of selling, give me a call or at least refer them to me. I promise, they’ll never see a bad picture in their listing.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – The Internet Ad Said I Could Make A Fortune Selling Stuff On Ebay

All that wasted floor space in front of the bed...We could put some of the boxes there!They made it sound so easy. I sent them my money and they were supposed to ship all the stuff right to my customers. But UPS kept coming day after day. Pretty soon it became obvious that I didn’t have enough room for it all, so I put the house up for sale. I’m going to buy a bigger one with all the profits as soon as I figure out how to use EBAY.

All pictures today are from the same listing.

Theres some room in front of the hutch. Put some there.There's plenty of room in the walk in, put some there too. If we pull the couch out a little, we could stack some behind it, and still be able to watch TV.

 

 

 

 

Look Marge, an empty corner. Let's put some boxes there, too

UPDATE: I forgot this one but it’s from the same listing, so I’m adding it today.

775978_501_15This one just cracked me up.  Not sure why, exactly. I’ve had a dozen half developed caption ideas but none of them jelled. Maybe one of you has a good caption that you’ll leave in the remarks.

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – Built in Clothing Racks Are A Major Selling Point

Where are the dirty clothes that are supposed to be  hanging on the exercise equipment?People’s stuff isn’t very important when it comes to selling a home. Sure a well furnished, clean, and properly staged home will sell faster than a cluttered, dirty home, but the actual furnishings or belongings of the seller should not be the focus of the picture.

Is this a big room? Or a small one? Is it even a bedroom for that matter? Is the treadmill the bonus giveaway?

And why aren’t there clothes hanging all over it as they are on every other treadmill in America?

Worst MLS Photo Of The Day – A Subtle Game Of Footsie

761177_301_19The only way to get rid of the dead beat brother in law is to sell the house. Joe is such a dead beat, he wouldn’t even get out of the recliner to let the pictures get taken.

Other than Joe’s feet, it’s not a terrible picture by any means. The agent is emphatic that Joe does not convey with the house.
