More Bad MLS Photos

This text:

OWNER HAS TWO DOG! MUST ARRANGE WITH OWNER WHEN SHOW. OWNER DID A OUTSTANDING JOB ON THE REMODELING. KITCHEN REMODELED WITH GRANITE COUNTER TOPS, STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES AND CUSTOM MAPLE CABINETS. BOTH BATHS HAVE BEEN UPGRADED AND REMODELED. THE WHOLE HOUSE HAS BEEN REPLUMBED WITH COPPER PLUMBING AND UPGRADED 1/4' DUAL PANE WINDOWS. THERE ARE BLOCK-OUT WINDOW BLINDS IN THE BEDROOM. NORTH/SOUTH EXSPOSER. LARGER IRRIGATED LOT WITH SPARKLING RESUFACED POOL WITH ORANGE TREES AND POSTINOS. BACKYARD IS GREAT WITH PLENTY OF ROOM WITH CHILDREN'S PLAY AREA AND LARGE COVERED PATIO.



is accompanied by this photo (and only this photo):


The owner may have done an outstanding job remodeling, but the Realtor didn't do such an outstanding job photographing. In this age of digital cameras barely larger than a credit card, this is just unacceptable.


By the way, only certain Phoenicians would know that "postinos" isn't an architectural feature. It's a local wine bar. Don't even get me started on the awkward sentence construction. Was the pool resurfaced with  plaster or with actual orange trees?


I'm shaking my head, and heading off to the next meeting of the Professional Organization of English Majors. (Fans of Garrison Keillors weekly radio show and it's fake commercials will get that reference; others can see here but I warn you that old GK has a distinctly Midwestern sense of humor.)
