Visual Distractions Everywhere

August 22nd, 2014 · 15 Comments

The seller had spent years collecting this and that and spent endless hours carefully placing each item in the perfect spot.  She wasn’t about to pack any of it for some picky buyer.  No way.

This is her home!

No one is going to tell her what to do.

You’d expect her to live in a house that was stripped of her collectibles?  The nerve!

Buyers will just have to see past the clutter.

Will buyers notice the nice floor?

Buyers are instructed not to touch any of the items.

Overwhelmed.

She could hire a professional home organizer.  Or a friend or neighbor kid.

Involved Sellers

Some sellers like to get involved with the sale of their home.  They want to be a part of every process.  Including real estate photography.

This seller is letting buyers know how relaxing his home is.  He’s taking a nap!

She has something on her hands, but it isn’t time.  Otherwise, she’d turn off the TV and remove the dirty cat tower.

Paralysis by indecision.  “Do I close the mailbox first or remove the chair or call the Dumpster company?”

See the X on the window?  It means no pets in real estate photos.

Two dogs that have nothing to do with selling a house.

The dog is distracting you from the baseboards and the lady’s feet.

The dog is the center of attention.  Its owner is sitting to the left.

Sellers On Display

Sellers keep insisting on being in real estate promotional photos.

His defense for not removing the water jug is that he’s behind the fence.

man person in real estate promotional photo picture Apache Junction Arizona home house for sale

Yes, you should have removed the yellow trash can.

woman lady person in real estate promotional photo picture Mesa Arizona home house for sale

This was the only photo of this house.  None of the front, the bedrooms, the baths, etc.  Just this one photo.

She’s too late asking the photographer to step in closer to not show the speed hump sign or the weeds.

Drapes

Window drapes in a bathroom shower will get soaking wet.  Smart idea?

Overly dramatic.

And again in another room.

Utterly useless here.  The curtain rods are only 2 feet wide.

It takes more time and energy to throw the drapes over the rod than it would be to pull them to one side.

Too much fabric and too heavy.
