They say that a picture is worth a 1000 words – in real estate, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Even keeping in mind that real estate agents are not professional photographers, over the years we have seen some real doozies posted on the Internet! Those are the ones that are certainly not going to sell the house, but they will leave a lasting impression on the viewer.
I was reminded of that again today when I came across the site, HookedOnHouses.com. (This is now one of my favorite sites!) In addition to a wonderful section on celebrity homes, they have a collection of some truly awesome BAD listing photos that make your jaw drop and leave you shaking your head.

So for fun, I decided to check out just the new listings from today on our own Las Vegas MLS to see what I could come up with. While I didn't find anything earth shattering in today's new postings, I only had to go through about a dozen listings to find some photos should not have gone online.
