Bad Real Estate Photo Tour

Real Estate Agent with Weichert, Relators - Home Pros TN 300100


I had previously rambled about poor pictures on home listings.  But this time, I thought that I would show everyone what I was talking about.  Click below to see some of the really bad photos that I have collected. 

Bad Real Estate Photo Tour

A hot button for me is not immediately putting pictures on the listing.  I checked my MLS and 12.4% of the listings had NO picture.  Buyers who were emailed these listings more than likely passed them up.

Another one of my hot buttons are real estate agents that show only one picture when they have ten available to them in our MLS.  Then we have agents like the one below that found a way to fill them.  I found it interesting also that the agent took the picture on one of the two days that it snowed this winter.

You gotta wonder if the agent had keys to get in the house.  I am amazed at the fact that so few real estate agents take only 1 exterior photo.

At least they are slightly different.  If you cut them out and flip them fast it might look like a virtual tour of walking by the house.

I remember seeing that house w/ the snow.  I think it was only about a month ago (in August or beginning of Sept).  I am not a realtor but, I thought...time to take a new picture!

That is unbelievable!!  One of the simplest, most cost effective things an agent can do and so many do not take the little bit of time to do it.  It makes you wonder if they are in the right business.  And the poor sellers.  Just imagine what kind of service they are getting!!  Jeeeez!
