With this series we take a look at 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
Oh my-- a triple threat-- crooked, over exposed, and taken in a way that makes a small room look tiny. Yikes! I think I probably would have re-taken this or just not posted it at all... it's not doing much to help market the home. This is a $719,000 listing in California
Cute dogs... but I doubt they'll make a 'splash' with potential buyers expecting to actually see pictures of a house!! 😉 And that's not to mention that the date on the photograph is 2008... and we found this online recently! This is a $765,000 lisitng in Nevada.
Sound off! Tell us which of these (top, center, or bottom) you think is the worst and why!
