So, I'm watching tv last night and get a text from a close friend.
Never saw this one coming.
Text included a photo. A local listing photo. An OMG local listing photo.
My friend is a real estate agent and someone in her office found this photo on Zillow.
The photo was quickly deleted, but not before it was saved. That is what happens on the internet.
Remember, when you post something it is forever.
You've seen listing photos with the agent caught in the mirror.
Sure, we see those all the time.
What I haven't seen before, in a listing photo, is a person in the mirror with nothing on from the waist down.
Donald Duck and Winnie the Pooh style...
nothing but a shirt.
Female...in all her glory.
I told you it was an OMG photo.
The house is listed fsbo so I assume it is the owner in the picture.
I mean, she didn't hire a real estate agent so she probably didn't hire a photographer either.
Maybe you can save a lot of money if you hire a pantsless photographer???
God, I hope not. Just how badly do you want to save money?
I have to believe it is the seller, caught with her pants down. Literally.
My friend said this is a good example of the importance of hiring a real estate agent.
It is...but there are some pretty bad agents out there based on mls photos I see.
How about this being a good example of the importance of hiring a professional photographer!
For those of you who don't use a professional photographer...
One very important question to ask yourself
