Elzar: Someone needs to fire these amateur hour realtors... Do they even want to sell these houses anymore?


You're kidding, right?

Do you have any idea how many people have looked at this otherwise unremarkable house BECAUSE there was a baby in the photos?
Sure, 99.99% of them aren't in the market for a house in WA. But the realtor got the word out about the house, and that is exactly what their job is.

Having a baby in the pictures also makes it easier for parents...and especially parents-to-be...to imagine their kids living there. Heck, as crazy as pregnant women get, I wouldn't be surprised if there were some making completely irrational decisions to buy that house, because of the baby in the pictures.

ElizaDoolittle: When I first saw the baby, I grinned and thought PhotoBomber!  But the kid is in almost every photograph.  This had to be deliberate.  The house is empty, so the kid doesn't live there.  Is it the realtor's kid, or did the owners want their kid in the photos?  Either way, eyeroll.


No kidding. Not to mention that the ones where the kid is sitting on the counter is farking dangerous. How stupid is this Real-Liar.

/Not bad in theory, goof with the pictures a bit, upload to fark/reddit/share via facebook, hope for mainpage/viral shares, instant free advertising.
//That is if it was on purpose. If the baby got into that many pictures accidentally then fire them.

I'm not sure how adding another money pit to a money pit would sweeten the deal.

The My Little Pony Killer: But you were usually close by with one or both hands free to catch the baby. The realtor obviously isn't.


I have video that proves I was across the room with a camera in hand when the kid discovered gravity.
He cried when he fell off the table, that was about it. No bruises, no concussion, etc.

Toddlers aren't THAT fragile. I wouldn't chuck one out a second story window, but they literally spend all their time falling down. They get pretty good at it.

JMel: I'm so glad that I live in Texas. 500 more sqft, muuuuuch bigger piece of property, great neighborhood, excellent city (although it did have its first murder in like 50 years a few months ago), booming area, and my house was brand new and $70K less.

And only 25 minutes from Downtown Dallas* (*without traffic).

Now if you excuse me, i'm going to go home and kiss my house.....and my hot neighbor.


Only problem is, it's Texas.

Yeah that was my thought too. The kid is crawling in some of the pictures. Person taking the picture is a real jackass.

Lighten up, Francis.

Babies climb on things. When my kid was that age, he loved to climb things on his own. Counter-tops and bathroom sinks were the first place he would head.
