The moral of this story is: if you’re selling your home, make sure you know what pictures your agent is putting up on the MLS.
Athol Kay, a realtor in Connecticut, writes a great blog, which I religiously read for the humorous “Bad MLS Photo of the Day”. These are actual photos that appear in MLS’s across the country (no agent is ratted out, but anonymous viewers send these in), and the commentaries associated with the pictures are priceless.
Take a look at his “24 Worst ‘Bad MLS Photos of the Year”. And don’t let this happen to you. You’ve been warned.
