You mean it doesn't come with the apartment?
Pass.

I disagree. Put up more Rowan Atkinson posters.

De-slided

My brother is a real estate photographer, so I've sent that off to him to laugh at. Perhaps he can find a way to use it to drum up more business.

Amateur hour.

Looking at home listings, I saw a house that was 50k below average pricing for the area.

I started to click through the photos thinking, hmm, what's wrong with this place, it's a little dated, but nothing that a coat of paint and some refinishing won't fix. I'm not seeing what would cause a 50k reduction here.

Must be plumbing or roofing or something.

Suddenly, it all became revealed to me.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: And always remember to hide the Anal Lube.


Friend of mine is a contractor and does a lot of repairs and expansions - ie he's in a house that's occupied but the owners are usually away during the day.

He likes to take cell phone snappies of the things that people leave out in plain sight, often in the living or dining room. Dildoes, lube, magazines, DVDs, he's sent me snaps of all kinds of stuff. My favorite was a naked female pirate with a glued-on snatch made of what looked like Brillo pad.

Real Estate Agent:  Just a gentle reminder that potential buyers are interested in shots showing the house, the rooms, to get a sense of the size and layout of the house.

They're not at all interested in your idiotic shots of the current owner's couch against the wall, or a desk in a corner.

You're selling the house, not the shiat in it.
 
2013-10-31 04:46:02 PM
There was a thread from 2011 that reminded folks not to leave a dildo on the back of the toilet when trying to sell their house.

NSFW

I'm glad we found a house, but part of me misses the joy of seeing the mind-boggling shiat people do to their houses that they are trying to sell.

Rev. Skarekroe: Who would have that poster in the first place?


I would.

I think it is brilliant poster and the placement doubles its appeal, if not increasing it by even larger multiples.

I also want to know if there is a fantasy wonderland behind that tiny door without a knob. Is it Narnia? It must be something British. I suspect all of these photos are from the UK. There's just something about their half-assedness that suggests a country with less than half the advertising and marketing of the USA or Canada.

If the home owner was advertising for a student who never has wild parties, she was a marketing genius, though, so that undermines my theory very slightly. But she could be a freak marketing genius, one of very few living in the British Isles.

That one picture makes the slideshow worthwhile.

Caption:  You'll be sharing Pretty Baby's room. But she's a deep sleeper and she won't mind at all.

Quelle trouvaille charmante!

Nice dildo. Should be in the living room as an objet d'art, not on the back of the toilet commode.

But seriously, how do you know that wasn't a major selling point?

Girls On Top style, or possibly for a person looking for a lesbian roommate.

Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: You're selling the house, not the shiat in it.

This falls under the "get a real photographer to shoot the house instead of using your cell camera" doctrine.

// your cell phone camera is likely not capable of capturing the true feel of a room, hence we get shots of nothing but a couch and the wall it's against (the "lens" in the cell camera isn't wide enough to capture anything else.

// It also probably means that it's a small room, sneaker zoom until your back is against the opposite wall, oops, still not wide enough.

One of my favorite sets of real estate photos was the ones that were of completely empty rooms, except for a baby.

Black Adder selling the house to Mr. and Mrs. Pants:


Mrs Pants: What about the privies?

BlackAdder: When the master craftsman who created this home was looking at the
        sewage, he said to himself, "Romeo," -- for 'twas his name -- "Romeo,
        let's make them functional, and comfortable."

Mr Pants: Oh, well, that seems nice, doesn't it, Dear!

BlackAdder: I think we understand each other, sir. So it's sold, then. (goes to
        a pot and pours into a cup) Drink?

Mrs. Pants: [Insistent] But what about the privies?

Blackadder: Um, well, what we are talking about in privy terms is the latest in front wall fresh air orifices combined with a wide capacity gutter installation below.

Mrs. Pants: You mean you crap out the window?

Blackadder: Yes.

Mrs. Pants: Well in that case we'll definitely take it. I can't stand those dirty indoor things.

I don't know how anyone can mention Mr. Bean and BlackAdder in the same sentence, without disliking the former.

and would it kill them to show where the front door leads into? all the rooms always seem disconnected from the others so it's hard to tell what leads to what.

I remember seeing that years ago. Looks pretty obvious that there's supposed to be a deck going across both houses so you'd go up the stairs and then along the deck to the door. I'd assume they were still under construction.

Not sure if it is still around but there used to be an awesome website named lovelylistings.com that was full of such pictures.
