In most cases, real estate listings feature a slide show of glossy, well-lit and appealing photos that are misleading if anything.
The angles are perfectly manicured to make spaces look more expansive, the photographs are strategically taken during the golden hour, and everything is polished and bare, or staged for Instagram. While it can be soothing to look through these beautiful listings, it can also be exhausting parsing how true the representations are.
However, for every hundred gorgeous real estate shots there is at least one bizarre or straight up creepy photo that made its way onto the internet.
Luckily, for the realists among us, the Instagram account Terrible Real Estate Photos is dedicated to digging up the absolute worst photos advertising homes on the market.
While the whole account is a glorious wade into the marsh of ugly realtor shots and undoubtedly haunted houses, I have gathered 30 of my favorites from the line-up for your enjoyment.
