One of the most popular posts on this blog is Unbelievably Bad Real Estate Photos. There’s something hilarious about seeing some of the photos that Realtors are willing to use to market a property. As a result there are large numbers of sites that earn advertising dollars by showing off Bad Real Estate Photos. This photo is a classic example of that.
On one level this is funny but on another level it’s sad to see a someone that is trying to earn a commission for selling a property that apparently can’t tell the difference between a good marketing job and a bad marketing job. This agent should get a job at Micky D’s.
I believe in general it is getting harder every day to get by with this kind of nonsense because sellers are getting more sophisticated and the top listing agents are putting more emphasis on quality marketing. Most sellers that I meet can see that this is not quality marketing. Most sellers I know could do better than this with their SmartPhones.
