29 Home Photos Taken by Agents that Will Have You Asking, ‘Why, God?! Why?’
Ever get invited to someone’s home for the first time and end up seeing something that makes you just shake your head, or do a double take, or even run out the door screaming? Well, as a real estate agent, this happens on the regular. You end up viewing so many homes, you’re bound to run into things that boggle the mind.
Here are a number of photos (and stories) of strange things that agents have found online or came across. Try not to get whiplash from shaking your head.

Wait, what if previous listing agents are in there??
There are some homes in this world that are just hard cases for a real estate agent to sell. Sometimes the house is too small, or in need of repairs, or perhaps in an undesirable neighborhood. On rare occasion, though, you get a home that’s dreamy in almost every way, and yet the owners have somehow shot themselves in the foot.
Fifty-six-year-old Gillian Walsh and her second husband David have one such home, which is located on a leafy street in Crosby, on the outskirts of Liverpool.
Aside from being competitively priced, their home meets all of the normally desired specs for a potential buyer. So, why won’t this six bedroom home sell after 13 months and a $75,000 price cut?
It’s spacey, looks gorgeous, and is in a wonderful neighborhood. What gives?

But when the doorbell rings “Oh my darling Clementine”, let’s just say it’s a sign of what’s to come.
Everyone has their way of building a comfortable nest. However, this house seems to have only attracted “mocking birds” across the internet.
One online commenter said that simply to look at the pictures ‘gives me a panic attack’. On Facebook, ‘Call in the House Doctor!’ was one de-cluttering suggestion; another speculated over whether the three dogs in front of the fireplace were stuffed.
If they have a pet, I wonder how often it gets lost in the yard. Seriously though, I hope they do attract a buyer that either loves clutter as much as they do, or has x-ray vision. It’d be great to see everyone turn out happy in this endeavour.
