We Aren’t Ready For Your Close-Ups, Mr. Photographer

August 20th, 2012 · 6 Comments

Close-up real estate photos are good for featuring details.  But for most buyers, they want to see the whole room in one photo.  Here’s one poor example.

Close-up of the closet.

To the left, half of a window.

To the left again, the other half of the window.

And to the left one more time, another part of the bedroom.

This is the only photo of another bedroom.

This photo’s caption reads, “Bathtub.”  It’s the only photo of the bathroom.

This is the dining room.

Another close-up photo of the dining room.  There are no photos of the entire dining room.

The living room.  Floor, that is.

This is the only other photo of the living room.

    My initial reaction was: “Why bother? These pictures just take up room on the website.” My husband’s reaction, on the other hand, was: “What are they trying to hide?” These pictures are worse than worthless.

    Picky, I agree.

    I would fire my agent if they used these on my home’s feature sheet.

    Looks like photo were taken via hidden camera. Was the agent in disguise when they took the photos?

    Where do you find these photos, Leif? It would be hard to make up fake ones to just post for humour.

    SAM, I guarantee, these are actual photos used to promote the sale of these homes. I don’t have to make it up. Unfortunately.

    Are they trying to sell the house? or the furniture?
