Ugly Realtor Photos

Filed in Heights News & Events by on May 23, 2014

My pet peeve…ugly Realtor photos (Not actually “of” Realtors, but ugly house photos “by” them). I have written about this before and will again.

Ugly Realtor Photo 1

This is the “Featured” Photo!

I realize that we can’t take great photos of everything, but the photos shouldn’t feature the street, garbage cans, closets, etc. They should also be in focus, not shot with your phone as you zoom past the house without slowing down.

If these are your photos…go re-shoot them!

To make this worse lazy Realtors shoot everything with their camera phone, and don’t even know to turn it sideways. Vertical shots may be okay for some things, but if it’s the featured photo (meaning it’s the first photo shown by HAR’s software squishes it into a horizontal format. The featured door and fire hydrant shown here are shown on HAR as half height and double width.

Must be Selling a Fire Hydrant

That’s it for now….I’m sure these Realtors are really prospering with their fine work.
For some reason, Lindale Park homes seem to have the crappiest photos. I don’t understand that. Lindale Park is an area I love.

Maybe the “Soft Focus” was Deliberate
