A friend asked me the other day where my latest installment of Bad Realtor Photography was on my blog. I just have not seen many good ones....I guess Realtors are getting better! Here is one that was either shot through gauze or there was a fire in the oven before this was taken.
Here is a deal on a Richmond Height's house. A creative way to sell a house!
I am trying to sell my son's Mitsubishi Montero Sport with 145,000 miles on it....maybe I should try this approach!

When I was first married we bought a charming dutch colonial house in Glendale. I was still infatuated by ducks....which must have been leftover from the preppy 80's. I have to fess up, I did have ducks on my ceiling of our den. I don't know where they are now. I must have lost them in the divorce. Picture seen on this BLOG.
Here is a another series of questionable photos that realtors use to sell property.
A smoke-filled basement.
This Webster home looks like they have a log flute right onto a concrete pad....though I know it is a pool cover.
Same home....I can not figure out what is going on in this room...are their card board boxes laid out flat near the bed? A poly chintz bedspread coupled with modern chairs. What is on the right side of the picture...weight equipment?
Here is a condo development in Clayton- this picture highlights the courtyard...is it me or is this just unattractive?
Reader Wendy sent me this picture this morning! Oversized furniture in a small room...and is it just me or do you think it is hard getting in the front door and around that massive couch?
First of all....when some people think of mid-century homes, they think of homes like this. It is from 1972, which in wine terms is a "bad vintage". I don't think new construction turned out anything good until the 90's....though with McMansions and everything else, can be debated. Back to bad photography...some of this is just a bad subject, though there is lots of bad photography here also!
I don't know if this house has a tennis court or a large pet enclosure.
For you garden enthusiasts...here is a planter waiting for you to fill it!
Doors...Doors...who wants a room with Doors! I know it is to highlight the great closets.....though also great for a Price is Right fan!
Maybe this rug should have been shampooed....though I love the vacuum lines!
Do you think Spider Man was the photographer?
I think the photographer wanted to stress the hardwood floors in this shot.
This home was recently listed in Ladue. You really wonder what people were thinking when they took the photographs. It would take about 5 minutes to straighten up these rooms to make them presentable. Thank you reader Will for bringing this to my attention!
I love the toilet paper roll on the dinner tray table next to the chair. The poor owner probably has a cold.
The folding chair makes this room sing! He also needs to do laundry....check out the hamper. Oh wait....I just noticed that the bed is on the floor and the headboard and footboard are leaning up against the wall. He must have lost the screws to put it together when he moved in.
Here is a realtor shot for a house they are trying to sell. I think it was taken during the brush fires going on during the summer...or the fog coming in from the bay....oh...we are not in California are we?
Do you believe that these pictures below were used to market this CWE Condo?
The messy office...where is the flat screen monitor?
I love the unmade bed.....this is what really gave me a chuckle. Though what is in the lower right side of the pic....I think it may be a walker....now I am feeling bad that this person is handicapped and I am poking fun. Don't you think the the realtor could have helped out and at least fluffed and spread out the duvet?
