Great Condo, Terrible Pictures

Posted on May 6, 2015 | by Denny Oh

I’ve talked about this in the past, but it kills me when agents take bad photos of their clients’ homes.  There are so many lazy and cheap realtors out there, I don’t understand how they get any listings.  Photos are by far the most important factor in selling a home, or at least in getting people interested in buying it, and taking your own terrible photos is a huge disservice to your clients.

Now that I’m done complaining about other agents, here’s a new unit for sale at the Park Place condos.  This new listing has incredible views of the bay and city. I’m not going to give any other details so I don’t put the listing agent on the spot, but if you’re looking for a large condo with great views at Park Place, please let me know.  The photos don’t even come close to doing it justice.

    Hi Denny, I completely agree with you. Having iPhone pictures is unacceptable and is a disservice to the seller. Professional Photos only no matter if its a $200,000 condo or $2,000,000 home! My newlywed buyers and I were looking for a condo in North Park under $300,000. I found a condo in the MLS with only 9, dark, poor iPhone photos…… but saw a glimpse of beauty. I encouraged them to give it a shot due to the prime location. Upon opening the door we saw crown moulding, stainless steel appliances and gorgeous wood flooring. We immediately made an offer under market value and it was accepted. Now, I am happy for my buyers because this was a huge win. But I know if this condo had professional photos, it would not have sat on the market for 199 days and sold under market value! #longrant #sandiegorealestate

    Hi Kelly – thanks for reading and sharing your story! Sometimes we can take advantage of another agent’s poor service, but it still bothers me every time I see it. I’m glad you were able to help your clients and things ended well! It’s amazing that agents don’t care enough to spend a few hundred dollars to make several thousands!
