5 Very Scary Real Estate Photos

by hookedonhouses on October 18, 2011

In the spirit of Halloween, here are 5 real estate photos that might give you the shivers…

#1. The former homeowners really left their mark on this place.

#2. With that fireplace, this living room is ready for Halloween year-round.

#3. This bed looks like it could be dangerous, especially for sleepwalkers.

#4. Um, did someone forget to put Slither away?

#5. “I see dead people.”

Thanks to #1. Sherine and Steve, #2. Ugly House Photos, #3. Nita, #4. Meredith (listing), #5. Katie. If you find something unusual in the real estate listings, send it to me!

Oh, my gosh! That fireplace is HORRIBLE!!!

The snake… the bed….little girl in a black dress just standing in the hall…

The first one.. you can tell the people enjoy horror movies… the pictures on the wall..but still to sell a house?

Remind me… when I sell my house to take my own pictures.

Oh my!! I really have no words. The one with the little girl is a little bit creepy!!

Ellen October 18, 2011 at 8:04 am

Those are funny! Although if you really think about it, it’s kind of sad because that means somebody really likes that fireplace… and thinks that bed is pretty…. EEK!!! :-)

These should be on House Hunters Halloween. Will they pick the Gothic Bed house, the Psyco Shower house, or the Snake’ s Lair house. How could you forget any of these. Even if you tried.

Ha! Love it.

Shellie October 18, 2011 at 9:18 am

What is wrong with people???

Mom in High Heels October 18, 2011 at 9:29 am

Wow! The hand prints are CREEPY.

BTW, hosting a week of giveaways on my blog. Come on over!

Dean October 18, 2011 at 9:53 am

HA! The fireplace really did make me LOL. And with a Mona Lisa portrait? How bizarre.

Amanda @ Serenity Now October 18, 2011 at 10:46 am

The snake just sent me over the edge. Really. Ick!!!

Jimmy Welch - Realtor October 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

Love the pictures and the holiday….the blood hands were the best!

Arie @ The Ugly Barn Farm October 18, 2011 at 11:17 am

The little girl in the hallway really creeps me out. I don’t think I would ever feel comfortable touring a house for sale that had creepy, bloody, evil, or ghostly listing pictures.

Melanie October 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

Snake porn on your website? Well, now we have seen it all :-)

Those are great – but I can’t believe they actually showed up in real estate listings! The shower curtain with bloody hand marks is my favourite. I had a friend who had a shower curtain with a “Psycho-esque” sillouette of a man with a knife on it. She was otherwise quite conservative and classic with her decorating style so it was hilarious to see!

Lou Cinda October 18, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Shut.Up!! That fireplace looks like it has seen a burnt offering or two in its life!! All those candles on the hearth! Creepy!!

Lou Cinda 😉

That first picture reminds me of Psycho.

That has got to be the ugliest fireplace I have ever seen. Makes me wonder what type of person the owners were or if they were all right in the brain. Maybe they were Gothic.

That bed looks like a place a vampire or some type of creature would sleep. I hope the owners took it with them.

I have no words for that snake.

That doll is so creepy. She looks like she could come alive when you’re not looking.

Bre October 18, 2011 at 2:59 pm

This post is awesome! That fireplace is beyond sinister looking and that bed looks downright dangerous-and painful. With my klutzy nature I would definitely be risking severe injuries if I had such a bed-yikes!

I still love that terrifying shower curtain!

OK, fuzzy puppies in your photos – can turn off people with allergies.
SNAKES in your photos – will turn off almost everybody!

Donna @ Cooking + Praying October 18, 2011 at 3:56 pm

And before this we only thought the hoarders were scary?!! Yikes!

Juju at Tales of Whimsy... October 18, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Goodness gracious! Yowzers.

Nick & Anne: The Just Married Blog October 18, 2011 at 4:53 pm

OMG, the little girl in the door way is hysterical. Creepy…yet hysterical. So “6th Sense.”

shabbychick October 18, 2011 at 6:53 pm

Oh my. :0 We live near New Orleans, this house would fit right in there. I really don’t understand this staging that is such a trend right now. My husband was a real estate broker for 14 years, I think he would say it’s distasteful…unprofessional… desperate…oh, and creepy. To each his own, but if I were in the market for a house I’d pass on this one just because of these pictures.

T. October 18, 2011 at 7:01 pm

I’m trying to figure out what is in that painting over the snake bed. It almost looks like a giant snake! Ewwww.

Middle Sister October 19, 2011 at 9:21 am

This is the stuff that I love. A good laugh in the morning to start my day staging homes for sale. Imagine if we hung a bloody shower curtain….

Nathan October 19, 2011 at 12:30 pm

That gargoyle fireplace and the Mona Lisa just look so wrong together.

Louisville KY Real Estate October 19, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Hilarious…Thanks for the laugh.

Kelly Berg October 19, 2011 at 7:56 pm

so funny. that bed is just AWFUL!! thanks for the laugh.

Ami @ parsnipsandpears October 19, 2011 at 9:08 pm

yikes. that fireplace and bed is super creepy.

Decor Girl (@TheDecorGirl) October 20, 2011 at 9:20 am

I love it when you post these! Seriously have people selling their homes lost the ability to use their heads? I enjoyed that laugh. The snake would have sent me screaming out of the house!!!

Mrs. Limestone October 20, 2011 at 3:02 pm

Wow this is hilarious. Particularily love that spooky child in the last photo.

Ricki Jill Treleaven October 21, 2011 at 7:24 am

LOL, Julia…these are creeptastic! Thanks for posting them..they made my day! I definitely would not want to use the restroom in the house with the dangerous-looking bed.
