Amateur Real Estate Photography

June 27th, 2017 · 2 Comments

When in doubt, hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your home when selling. Otherwise, you’ll get stuck with these five examples.

First up, we see an amateur photographer who can take a photo of a house on his/her cell phone but can’t figure out how to transfer it correctly. He/she took a screen shot of his/her phone and used that as the photo. By the way, all 8 photos of the property were just like this one.

Speaking of screen shots, now we have an example of a shot of a screen.

Distorted photo yet it was still used to promote the house.

Watch out for shadows!

We said, watch out for shadows.

Hidden Below

When buying a home, be sure to check under the kitchen sink. You never know what you’ll find there. Mold/mildew, the seller’s shoddy repairs, etc.

Makeshift Bidet

June 16th, 2017 · 10 Comments

I saw this toilet on a home tour yesterday and stopped in my tracks. What is that?! A kitchen sink sprayer attached to a toilet?! To help them spray their bums? I mentioned this to another agent and he said, “Oh, I have that on my toilet.” What?!?! He then said, “It’s to spray off reusable diapers when they’re dirty. I have a 2-year-old.” That might be handy, but gross just the same.

Flag Day

June 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Today is Flag Day when we honor the American flag. Except for these three home sellers who display their flags incorrectly. The blue field should always be in the top left.

170614a

Dog-gone-it! Another flag fail.

170614b

Ugh.

Natural Shower

June 12th, 2017 · 4 Comments

The sellers thought this was a cool idea.

170612a

Buyers will think this is…? [Note: The sun is nearly straight overhead at noon on June 21st in Phoenix. That window above the shower will get full sun and heat up that bathroom like a sauna.]

Indoor Swimming Pool

June 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers commented on yesterday’s dirty swimming pool post and said he’d like an indoor pool if he bought a house in Phoenix. Well, Felix, your wish has been granted! Here’s a home with an indoor pool! You weren’t specific enough about the size and condition and quality and installation.

170610a

The sellers should have cleared off the counter and sink in the kitchen before selling.

170610b

And cleared off the stove.

170610c

And cleared off the floor. Good grief.

170610d

This room could use some attention too. Perhaps by the person standing on the left with the Nike sneakers.

170610e

Hey, lazy bones, get up and help the lady clear out everything on the patio.
