Every other week we’ll be featuring the good, the bad, and the ugly of real estate photography. Our ‘Wall of Shame’ features the bad (…and oh yes, the very ugly…) photos that some agents are using for their listings. On the opposite end of the spectrum, our ‘Wall of Fame’ features some of the most stunning photography agents are currently using to market their listings.
A little side note… on the weeks we’re not featuring the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, we’ll be providing photography tips designed to help you stay off of the Wall of Shame!
WALL OF SHAME
Shooting this photo of the master bath with a focus on the door more than the actual room or any of its features probably won't have buyers begging for a showing...the room most likely looks much smaller than it probably is and from the small glimpse of the bathroom features we do see, they look pretty nice, so why not show it off the right way? This is a $579,000 listing in Illinois
This is one of those "why even bother" photos that we see all too often... but if you're going to bother shooting this and actually posting it to the MLS, you should maybe try to at least get far enough up the stairs so they're not the focal point of the photo! This is a $699,900 listing in Tennessee
LOL!! Love how the seller is just hangin' out, waiting for the photo to be taken so he can get back to packing or cleaning or whatever it is that he's doing. Shooting the kitchen WITHOUT featuring the seller, or whoever that is, is probably a better way to market this $1,299,000 Georgia listing
Sound off! We want to hear which of these (top, center, or bottom) you think is the worst and why!
