As a full-time Realtor, I spend countless hours every week searching the MLS for homes for my clients. I often stumble across so many horrible photos, that it shocks me the homeowners haven’t fired their agent! It’s pretty ridiculous, actually. As a Realtor and writer, I thank them for making me look even better and for giving me such great material to work with!

These homes are STILL currently for sale! Shocker, I know.


1. Here we have a photo of three homes on the street. The listing is obviously for one home… so which one is it? Do we get to pick one like on House Hunters?

2. I see a pattern here. Clearly the agent is SO busy to take a proper photo or at least crop out the wrong one!

3. Here we have a lovely and colorful family room!

4. Here we have a family room that needs some color, and better lighting!

5. No, there’s nothing unusual about having the washer & dryer in the middle of the family room! How convenient!

6. Perhaps an earthquake was happening at the very moment this agent took the photo?

7. Cute dining room / kitchen / work-out room?

8. I think priming the whole room would’ve taken less work than whatever this homeowner did!

9. Wow! Here’s a photo of nothing!

10. And here is another room with a cord laying on the floor. This really makes me want to buy this house!!

11. I seriously have no idea what this is! A built-in dog house? A mini closet for homeless gnomes and fairies? A perfect hiding spot for when you want to scare the living daylights out of your guests?

Via: Realcomp

12. It was so nice of this person to clean up before their Realtor came over to take photos! Even nicer of this Realtor to post them online to expose their clients’ filth!

13. What am I looking at here? Am I shopping for a house, or a rug?

Via: Realcomp

14. I assume this is the “dining-room-converted-into-music-room” room. I’m digging their Halloween decor… or is that permanent wall art?!

Via: Realcomp

15. What a completely stupid and useless photo of the inside of a shower.

Via: Realcomp

16. Wow. Must be the same agent that took this useless photo of the inside of a garage door!

Via: Realcomp

17. OMG. Call a home inspector and HVAC company STAT!

Via: Realcomp

18. Holy Dinosaur! You may want to ask for a home warranty!

Via: Realcomp

19. Year’s best “You had one job” award goes to…

Via: Realcomp

20. Welcome to the Jungle!

Via: Realcomp

21. Is this agent trying to create the illusion that the heavens were shining down upon this home, as a sign that it’s “THE ONE”!

Via: Realcomp

22. Nope. The agent just doesn’t know how to use their camera phone, clearly.

Via: Realcomp

23. I think the milk crates are more valuable than the home this backyard belongs to!

Via: Realcomp

24. The owner of this home is hoping to make contact with aliens… Know any realtors on Uranus?
