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?

Fingers are not needed.

Photographers should not be in real estate photos either.

Needs help.  The photographer and the bathroom.

One out of four isn’t bad.

The best room of the house.

The air freshener really helps.

Instead of a hole in the door, how about adding a window or skylight to this dark bathroom?

The clump of hair is impressive.

It’s rare to see a home in Phoenix without a patio cover.  Perhaps they tore it down?  There are holes in the wall above the sliding doors.  By the way, did you notice the cat under the table?

At least the air conditioner is still there.
