If you don't know how to do something right, have someone else do it. I think buyers will assume that the property is not maintained as well as it should be (especially at that price point) when the first picture has an SUV and a shadow like that.

Inna, I was just noticing the incredibly horrible pictures on one of the listings in my MLS. I've seen more Realtors in bathroom photos than I care to remember, and today, I saw an agent's head-shot on her listing upside down. Good grief. What are buyers thinking? Probably the same thing. Good grief.

There's just no excuse when marketing a property, of that price-point, not to use professional photography. 

You should probably use professional photography for lower-priced properties, too... but over one meeeeelyon dollars, should always be quality imagery.

Clearly not everyone is qualified to list high end properties.  This one may not be qualified to list low end properties.

Keep an eye open for an expired in a few months and then you can show them how to do it right.

The buyers are thinking that this can't be a $1.3 house - it looks pretty 'average', and the pictures might just show a 'large house', though it's hard to guess as they are taken from a distance Inna Ivchenko.  Very easy to think a professional photographer didn't take these pictures, and someone or the realtor, was going on the 'cheap' and 'quick' to get any pictures.  What a dis-service to their client - I would not think I hired a professional realtor and would begin to wonder what else will be sub-standard - marketing, maybe hit or miss?  Would not give me a good feeling, as this is the only time to make that First Impression.
