Can’t see the house because the seller’s cars are in the way.

170414a

The photographer couldn’t move to the left a few feet and step forward six feet? The seller couldn’t move the truck?

170414b

Are they selling the car or the house?

170414c

Same house as above photo and same poor quality.

170414d
