Vague Real Estate Photos

October 6th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Sometimes you can’t get a clear idea about the look of a house.  Especially if the photos are not up to par, as promoted for this Mesa, Arizona home.

Sideways bathroom.

Five homes with holes in the ceilings.  Because?

The ceiling’s so low, perhaps the seller cracked the drywall open with his head.

Or maybe the seller wants to show the insulation to buyers?

This home has no insulation.
