Please Move Out of the Way

January 25th, 2013 · 4 Comments

We’re trying to take real estate photos to promote the house.  Please get up from the couch.  And turn off the TV.

Please get up from the table and remove the dog.  Thank you.

It’s not funny.  Please get out of the picture.

Please hurry up and go outside.  And while you’re out there, try to find the missing cabinet door.  [Thanks to our reader, Grumpy, for the correction; the cabinet door is open].

Holding the door closed won’t solve the problem.  Please repair it before buyers show up.

You do keep a very clean house.  Now please step back.

Please turn on some lights on your way out.

It might be time to remove the Santa lights, the plastic tree, the wreath, and the culturally insensitive sleeping man statue.  Oh, and the porch light is crooked.

Good idea.  Clear off the table.

    OoooKaaayyy! These pictures were obviously taken by the listing agents. Why weren’t the people asked to move for a minute? Why were pictures being taken when these sellers were signing papers? Are realtors just so darned busy that they can’t/won’t take the time to try to get it right?

    Actually, if you look closely you will see that the cabinet is not missing a door. The door has merely been left open.

    I blame this on the agent and the photographer. People need to know clearly to present their home in the best way possible, minus themselves, clutter, dirt, people, pets, etc. Sad. All of the pictures are distracting and I am being gracious.

    The TV in that first picture could be dangerous if they have young kids. A girl at my daughters school broke her leg when their old tv fell on it. I’ve heard of kids dying when crushed by them.
