Isn’t it amazing how little care some real estate agents seem to put into their real estate listings? From bad MLS photos to typos in listings, I know most home stagers have seen it all.
In the more relaxed spirit of summer, I just saw a funny clip from Ellen which pokes fun at bad real estate listings. Thought you’d enjoy these examples of what not to do when selling a home!
On a more serious note, what are the worst things you’ve seen real estate agents do after you’ve carefully staged one of your client’s homes? My pet peeve is the real estate agent who walks into a home I’ve just carefully arranged for photography and throws his coat over a chair, leaves his shoes in the middle of the hallway, dumps papers all over the dining room table and then takes the listing shots!
