Selling a property is a big deal. I’d be running errands with a camera crew trying to take immaculate snaps, catching the tiniest dust, staging the best possible facade—something my flat could never be. But you gotta let the pros do their job.

And some real estate agents couldn’t care less. Because when it comes to attracting potential buyers, the advertised pictures hit the bottom of the barrel. And we’re talking standards. From nasty décor and filthy interiors to prison-like rooms and "holy cow, what's that thing," these property photos are quality nightmare material. Thanks to the blog called Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos, which celebrates “low standards and a lack of attention to detail,” we now know how not to sell a property. And it’s fairly easy: whatever you do, just don’t post that goddamn pic. After you’re done, check out our previous post with terrible real estate photos here.

Wow - that is one overly busy washroom. That looks like seafoam carpet. Who puts carpet in a washroom? Now, I see the reason for the plastic sheeting.

Carpet in the bathroom and kitchen seems to have been a trend in the 80s/early 90s

Bored Panda contacted Andy Donaldson, the creator of the Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos blog, to find out more about the project. Everything started when Andy was flat-scouting online in London back in 2013. “Before long, I was spending more time saving hilariously bad photographs to my desktop than booking viewings, which left me with a dilemma: What to do with the photos?” After he posted a couple of gems with a caption, it went down really well and that’s how the now-famous blog was born.

During these past 7 years, Andy has noticed that agents are gradually catching on to the importance of listing photographs. “Perhaps partly due to the risk of appearing on Terrible Real Estate Photos, the level of professionalism is definitely improving,” said Andy. Of course, that doesn’t mean there isn’t still tons of potential material for him, but these days it’s “less hit and hope than it used to be.”

The reason why Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos keeps on having continued popularity is because of its universality. Andy says that everyone has looked for a house or a flat online, and everyone who has seen these photos out there has wondered the same thing: “why you would ever take a photograph of a sock in a fridge?”

It turns out, the horrible real estate pictures were also recognized by the art world. It was selected for a standalone exhibition in Pavilion 1 of the Hamburg Triennial Photography Exhibition, which Andy believes is a “testament to the German sense of humor.”

One of the worst estate images Andy has seen throughout these years is the horse in the kitchen, “no question.” He explains: “There was no comment or explanation, and all the other photos in the listing were horse-free.” The recent worst one belongs to an image featuring a painting of a woman breast-feeding her dog and “it still haunts my dreams,” confessed Andy.
