The Top 10 Worst Property Photographs (according to me)!

There are so many Realtors out there today who constantly complain that they haven't sold a house in months, and part of that reason is because their photography skills are terrible. The first impression is everything when selling real estate, and the first impression is usually the photographs. 85% of all homes are sold by buyers surfing the web. Therefore, image is everything. If bad photographs are attached to a home for sale making it look less desirable, then the potential buyer will quickly move on the next property. I have compiled my list of the Top 10 Worst Property Photographs on the internet today. Enjoy!

It's a corner of a room...I think. Not sure which room, exactly. But at least it's in focus, right?

I think there's a house behind that tree, but I'm not quite sure.

The cherry blossom's are beautiful. But last I checked, it's the house that's for sale, not the trees.

That's a snow covered pool, or a huge ditch in the backyard. Either way, Winter is over.

Is this a house for sale, or a prison cell?

Realtor Rule #343: Never take photos while intoxicated!

4 For Sale: Wonderful Home. Windows Sold Separately.

3 Messy? looks fine. No one will notice. Don't worry!

Does that pile of underwear on top of the ironing board come with the house? Maybe that person on the far left was about to clean up, but they snapped the picture to quickly.

And you're #1 Worst Property Photograph (according to me), is...

1The Blurry Living Room! I guess this Realtor forgot to wear his glasses that day.


  1. These are hilarious! What are some of these agents thinking!! YOu don't need an expensive camera just common sense! Thanks for giving me a good laugh!

  2. OMG! I could send you some pretty bad pictures too. But these are great, how smart do you have to be to know that a blurry picture or a picture of dirty underpants ain't going to get the house sold!!! Maybe they should make you pass photography 101 to get a real estate license.

  3. Great piece. Just what the realty world needs... a smart young realtor to tell 'em like it is. Watch out houses, Nick is gonna buy and sell you!
