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.
WALL OF SHAME
Showcasing beautiful hardwood floors is great...zooming in on a damaged, dirty (and maybe even a little moldy) hardwood floor is not so great. This is a $950,000 listing in California.
We couldn't just do a little light staging before taking this one? I mean, at the very least, putting the toilet seat down so it doesn't look so 'freshly used'??...but maybe also putting that new roll of toilet paper on that's just sitting there and temporarily hiding the hundreds of products they have lying around to avoid highlighting the lack of space/storage? This is a $389,900 listing in New Hampshire.
Now it’s your turn to sound off! Tell us which of these (top, center, or bottom) you feel is the worst and why!
