Want to buy a doublewide, pilgrim?


Is this a thing? A thing that real estate agents do? A "this random image will seal the deal" thing? I do not know.

(Found by Megan, who wonders if he's included.)

Is that a freshly dug grave near the front door?

Meg said...

Too many snarky comments come to mind. Head explodes.

Okay...
1. The blue house/shed/thing-is that an outhouse?

2. Are they really using the honest-to-god houses on proper foundations as a selling point? Like living next to a real house will make your trailer somehow seem...high fallutin'?

3. Does anyone else think the pool looks a little swampy?

4. That does look like a grave!

A little over a year ago when I was apartment hunting in NYC I was AMAZED by how many random images were included on real estate pages. Celebs, dogs, lovely clouds, etc. I always wondered if they were included in the monthly rent...

I would really love to send my kids to the "Battleground" school. It'll be just like when we lived on the South Side of Chicago.

Yeah, you're right. That really does look like a grave in the front yard. I guess that's where John Wayne's buried.

And I think it's really funny that they posted pictures of their neighbors houses. They look nice, but they're not for sale.

I live in Chicago and am apartment hunting, and soooo many ads --done by professional rental companies, no less!-- feature random images either in addition to or in place of images of the unit for rent. It's really frustrating. I want to see if the apartment has a kitchen; I don't care that you've found a really awesome photo of Homer Simpson or the Bean or two people earnestly shaking hands, whatever. Not helpful!
