Do you want it or not? I haven't got all day.

Hey, buddy. Wanna buy a house?

What do you mean, what kind of house? It's a house, okay? It's just a freaking house. Do you want it or not? What, you want a photo? Oh for... fine. Here's a photo.



There. Happy? It's a house. No, not that one, that one over there, yeah, that one. See, it has a window or something, and a garage, maybe two, I don't know, look, it's just a house! How much information do you need?

Sheesh.

After some of the recent listings, NOT seeing more could be construed as a blessing ...

wow! Only one picture? Really? I know if I was selling my home for $1/2mil (so funny thinking about my tiny 2-bedroom DC suburbs house going for that), I'd seriously invest in a real estate agent who can handle taking a point-and-shoot photo that actually frames my house and not my neighbor's back deck. Although, maybe stuart was right, less is more sometimes...

I think he was trying to get the car in so he could use the same snap to sell that.

in this day of digital photography - is it really to much to expect a real estate agent to take more than one shot... even if only one gets posted - they can pick the best...

wait, maybe this WAS the best... the other probably framed the photographer in the car's side mirror!

it's trick photography: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

In my mental image of the inside of the house, there is a lonely stove, some misspelled graffiti on the walls, a dirty toilet with the lid up, and an old guy watching TV whilst pretending not to notice that he's having his picture taken.

There may also be some crucified dolls hanging on the walls in one of the bedrooms.

An alternative reading would be that they were transfixed by the play of the light through the shrubs in their autumnal glory, and wanted to show the sort of long shadows you might enjoy if you lived here.

At least they were nice enough to leave a google street view image embedded in the listing. That way you can see the nice shrubbery :D
