Unbelievably Bad Real Estate Photos

Published: 09/03/2012

Over the years I've made it a habit to occasionally pass a long some of the sites that feature bad MLS photo. It's frankly amazing how many of these sites there are. These sites are always good for a few laughs. Here are several sites that I've come across recently:

  1. Bad MLS Photos
  2. Terrible Listing Photos
  3. What not to do when selling
  4. Hooked on homes
  5. Bad real estate photos
  6. Lessons bad MLS photos teach
  7. So Cal MLS Hall of Shame
  8. Lovely Listing
  9. Terrible real estate agent Photographs

It's just amazing how lazy and ridiculous agents are that actually load these photos on listings!

  1. Oh man I feel much better now! I SWEAT the details soooo much on a shoot! And I am hands down my own worst critic! But when I look at these images I feel soooooo much better!!

  2. OMG! those are some really unbelievable pictures ,no wonder a lot of people some times have a hard time trying to sell their houses. It is true that maybe they have never picked up a camara, but looking at this sometimes makes me feel better since I am a beginner.

  3. could you please for my permission next time before your reproduce my photos for this website !?!?

  4. there is certainly a lot of bad real estate photographers getting around here in melbourne it's quite funny to see i'm not sure how they're getting work but obviously some real estate agents shop on price and no doubt get what they pay for.

  5. 99% of the listing photos on the GMLS (Georgia Multiple Listing Service) fit this category ...bad!!! If it wasn't for the few pro's here in Atlanta, they would ALL be bad. Is it the same everywhere or is Georgia just special. (Actually, I remember looking at a lot of Houston Tx property listings when I had my house there and it was not nearly as bad. Maybe 90%...)
