A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words…   Leave a comment

By Michelle Portesi

We here at ‘Your Friend in High Places’ have talked a lot about the importance of sprucing up your house and yard along with good staging when trying to sell your property. We haven’t however, discussed the importance of taking good real estate photos after you’ve put in all that elbow grease and effort.

As the saying goes, A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words. Nothing gives a potential buyer a more enticing incentive to call about seeing more of your property or a sense of your home’s features than good photos.

So when I ran across this website of ‘Epic Real Estate Photo Fails’, not only did I get a good laugh out of it, but they were certainly prime examples of what NOT to do.
For your viewing enjoyment, here are a few examples:

.

pool-in-living-room-58b8bb323df78c353c0c730f (1)

One Question Remains…WHHHHYYYYYY? Is this ‘indoor pool’ considered a feature?

.

pig-58b8bb775f9b58af5c79135f

Really? A pig AND a piano? I’m rather confused as to this room’s actual intended use.

I’m not sure how they managed to do this, but it feels vaguely like the photo equivalent of one of those cubist Picasso paintings.

For more photo amusement, some of which were in such poor taste I didn’t dare post them here, go to this website: https://www.thoughtco.com/hilariously-terrible-real-estate-photos-1924229

…and then call Lynn Richardson, Your Friend in High Places. She would NEVER take photos like these to sell your home!
