How Selling Your House Is Like a Used Car Ad

March 30th, 2016 · No Comments

This photo is brought to us today from our reader Tyson.  It’s from a Craigslist used car ad in Las Vegas, Nevada.  He noticed the unwashed dusty car, the dent by the right front tire, the person in the photo, the dog, and the poor photography (shooting into the sun), many of the do-not’s of this blog.  Would this photo prompt people to call about the car?
