When she writes me, my friend signs off as ‘the other Marilyn.’ We met many years ago and we’ve gone through lots of Alameda real estate together. I’ve often told her she knows more about the Alameda market and marketing property than 95% of the agents out there. But she’s not quite ready to give up her engineering day job. Obviously the photos she’s seen with some of listings finally got to her. She shares her observations and some comments!
“As always, I enjoyed your weekly blog. But, it reminded me of a real estate question that has been puzzling me for a while. A lot of the photos in the MLS listings seem to be basically photos of furniture.
This agent apparently thought that this photo of someone’s old couch that doesn’t even fit into the room was important and/or would entice people to want to buy this house.
I think I’m missing a fundamental real estate concept here.
In furniture photos like this, what exactly is the agent trying to sell? I know it’s a petty point, but I’ve been wondering about it for quite a while. “
