Ever come across a photo of a house that’s for sale and wonder, what were they thinking? Here’s a collection of bad MLS photos from a variety of websites and listing services across the country.
Maybe I’m wrong…Feel free to write your own photo captions in the comments and rank them on a scale of 1 to 5.
1 = It’s actually a good photo
2 = Not that bad
3 = I’ve seen worse
4 = Really bad
5 = Horrible, what were they thinking?
If you find a bad MLS photo, let me know and it may be featured on this blog in the future. Email your name and a link to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know the city where the listing is located and/or the MLS number, please include it.
