Honestly, I didn’t just double-check, I triple-checked! And other than a “Photos of the Week” in November and an “MLS Exaggerations” in October, we really, truly haven’t run More MLS Musings since September.
Perhaps that’s why I literally have 107 photos in my musings-folder.
I don’t even know where to start!
Do I run a theme here, or just pick the best ones?
Should we look at MLS photos or should we roll with the descriptions?
Ah, I think I’ll just do this like swimming: jump in, move around, and see where the motion takes me…
I really enjoyed this photo array:
The first three photos are just so different.
Then when you get to photo number-four, you think, “Wait, is this the same house? It can’t be!”
By the time you get to the fifth and sixth photos, you’re like, “Okay, now we’re in a completely different city.”
And the next three photos literally make your mind explode with confusion.
The ninth photo comes along, and you think, “Wait………….houses have insides too?”
This condo is kind of neat:
Great couch, right?
Great bar stools too!
Oh, and in case you didn’t notice – there’s a goddam moped in the middle of the living room!
You know how I feel about MLS photos that show us where the building is located, right?
Like, Google Maps doesn’t exist?
Check this one out:
There’s the building!
Except, it’s worse than just including the photo.
This listing included it as the feature photo for the listing!
I honestly don’t even know what this is…
Those “fish-eye” photos creep me out.
I call them the “spy camera” photos, or the nanny-cam photos.
I mean, what the hell are these?
The grey colour palette and the position of the camera makes me think of this:
This one is really tricky, so head’s up, okay?
Look at the photos on the whole, not individually. Just look at what they represent.
What kind of property is this?
It’s nice, for sure.
But what’s my issue here?
Well, my issue is simple…
….it’s the wrong property.
Those photos above are clearly for a house.
They accompanied this listing:
As you can tell, that’s a condo.
And those photos above are of a house.
I took this screen-shot on the second day of the listing. I honestly don’t’ know how long it took for them to notice, but how the hell did this happen?
Imagine if you listed your downtown Toronto condo for sale and the agent included thirty-three photos of a house out in the country?
What do you reckon these sellers are thinking?
“Agnes, I know 2018 wasn’t our year, and neither was 2019. 2020 neither. But I really think that we can sell the house in 2021!”
Maybe there’s no record for “most days on market,” but this would probably be near the top, if there were.
Beautiful bedroom, right?
What am I going to say about this one?
Again, what’s the issue here?
What can I possibly point out about such a beautiful space?
This needs no explanation:
Or, it needs every explanation…
This is my dream:
To be treated to champagne and strawberries jailed in a small brick patio by 9-foot fences, staring at a brick wall:
Well, the joke is on me, since this backyard oasis is virtually staged!
Y’all familiar with the Windows program called Paint?
We used to use it when we were kids in the “Computer Lab” at school.
Somebody went to great lengths – in paint, to remove the car from this photo:
That’s Picasso-esque, honestly.
Those photo-shop skills should be put to use at the C.I.A or something…
Last, but certainly not least, if you’re a buyer out there, leave no stone unturned.
And by that, I mean open every door.
Because if you don’t open every door, including the sliding doors in the bedroom, you’ll never know if that closet has a shower and bathtub in it…
Have a great weekend, folks!Back To Top Back To Comments
