Worst Pics in the MLS 2: The Suckening

User Forum Topic
Submitted by Rich Toscano on August 4, 2016 - 11:02am

I wanted to resurrect the old "Worst Pics on the MLS" thread, but it was getting pretty long so I'll just start a new one.

I hope everyone is following the site http://terriblerealestateagentphotos.com (or Twitter equivalent or whatever), because it is a brilliant study in photographic ineptitude.

This horror-themed pic in particular is up there among the worst I've seen... I mean, couldn't you wait until the bat was done attacking you?

There was a similar blog called Lovely Listing that had wittier commentary, but alas it's been retired.

My two favorite trends in bad real estate photography are: shots out the car window because the photographer was either too lazy or too scared to leave the car, and the terrible Photoshop makeovers.

Did they really include that pic in an MLS photo? Crazy stuff!

Hi CAR! Haven't seen you around much, welcome back.

You know, I'm giving the site owner the benefit of the doubt that these are legit listing photos, but who knows. Then again, the pic does have a "casa.it" watermark on it - that looks to be an Italian property site.

Maybe it's Transylvanian.

Or maybe it's 1313 Mockingbird Lane.

Thanks, Rich! Yes, I've been working on some stuff in the non-virtual world over the past year+...coincidentally, with another Pigg. :)

It's been extremely time consuming, but we're finishing up now, so I hope to spend some more time here again.

Scrap value means instant equity

At $0.05 each, that's quite a bit of equity! And you get a Buddha too.

I'm hoping the cans were at least sanitized before placement. Otherwise that entire place is going to have that old beer stank.

If he (and it has to be a guy) drinks that much beer, it might have that old beer smell anyway.

The pics themselves show some skill. That condo is only 815sf but looks bigger.

fireproof.

wonder if they make acoustics weird....

Svelte, aluminum and steel are both naturally sterile. However, the cans older than 3-4 years probably have BPA lining. I don’t know if it escapes into the air but I’d worry at least a little, especially around children and pregnant women.

Stale dried beer is an awful smell but isn’t hard to remove like tobacco smoke smell.
