Oh, Deer! What’s Happening in These Real Estate Photos?

by hookedonhouses on August 1, 2012

1. The wildlife is very friendly in this area. Maybe a little too friendly.

2. I wonder if the former owner died in his sleep? Watch for Falling TVs!

3. I get the feeling Fido doesn’t want them to sell the house…

4. Bush For Sale. $179,000 or best offer.

5. Was this the agent’s way of distracting us from all the vines?

6. “Don’t worry. If the house doesn’t sell, we’ve got a backup plan.”

Stephanie J August 1, 2012 at 8:16 am

Wow. Those are some crazy photos. Thanks for sharing.

BungalowBILL August 1, 2012 at 8:22 am

Pretty amazing that people don’t really proof things before they post it. Funny though!

Lori @ In My Kitchen, In My Life August 1, 2012 at 8:24 am

Shaking my head here — hard to believe, but I guess we just don’t “see” sometimes.

Lisa~A Cottage To Me August 1, 2012 at 8:24 am

Too funny!

Oh my gosh, I couldn’t help but laugh at some of those!

House Crazy Sarah August 1, 2012 at 8:33 am

Hilarious! Do you think that deer in the first photo is a taxidermied one? So sad! I wish it was real!
The other photos – too funny! For the love of god, why don’t some realtors turn OFF the TVs for one quick pic?!?!?

Laura August 1, 2012 at 8:51 am

Hilarious! Thanks for the laughs :)

Christina from Dallas August 1, 2012 at 9:41 am

So Funny! Where the heck are the real estate agents ? This is only backfiring on them and their cut.

Michael August 1, 2012 at 9:50 am

These are some great ones, Julia.

Regarding that first picture, though, I have to say: if you can get past the decor and the very dated (although kinda nifty) diffused lighting around the ceiling perimeter, that it is a really nice space. And the trimwork is beautiful. It just needs someone to apply a more current aesthetic sense. Without the taxidermied animals.

Oh my gosh, THOSE WERE SO FUNNY!!!!!!!!!! Keep doing these, b/c I’d started slacking off reading your blog. So glad I decided to read today, and not delete the email post. These really got my day off to a great start!

Shabby Chick August 1, 2012 at 10:13 am

Hilarious, ridiculous and frightening all at the same time!

Sheryl August 1, 2012 at 10:59 am

I love it. Thanks for sharing. My Father-in-law says that th bedroom is used for only two purposes and one of them isn’t for watching TV.

Erin August 1, 2012 at 11:00 am

It took me a second on the first picture….maybe it’s time to redecorate when your couches are perfect camouflage for a massive deer!

Kim August 1, 2012 at 8:47 pm

The same thing happened to me too.

Parnassus August 1, 2012 at 11:23 am

I believe I got the link for UglyHousePhotos.com from you, and these are fully up to the standard set there. The captions are the best part, especially #2 and #6.

Kelly August 1, 2012 at 11:37 am

I look forward to these posts more than any you show. Your explanation below each picture just MAKES it! Jay Leno should really think about using these on his show. Ha!

Amanda @ Serenity Now August 1, 2012 at 11:37 am

Oooh, Julia! Those are some of the funniest you’ve shared. I can’t believe that agents would use those photos!!!

Mom in High Heels August 1, 2012 at 12:06 pm

LOL! Those are hilarious. The one with the vines is my favorite. What a distraction!

Shabby Chick August 1, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I KNOW!!! I didn’t even see the vines, had to go back and look! I would say it was a good distraction. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jessica August 1, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Are they not trying to sell the house? Are these sale by owner picture? If you remove everying on house #1, that would be a great house.
Thanks for the laughs.

Shabby Chick August 1, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Hahaha! “It’s a beautiful house. We’ll change everything.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

Screendoorgirl3 August 1, 2012 at 2:14 pm

These are so funny.I love the doggy one .Makes me wonder how many piles are scattered around. Eww!

Xenia August 1, 2012 at 4:33 pm

This is not really surprising. I remember when I was house hunting some of thie things I saw that were turn offs. You have to keep in mind that you are buying the house and not the present owner’s decor style and clutter.

Beth @ Free Stylin' August 1, 2012 at 5:19 pm

These are awesome! Thanks for the smile.

polly dove August 1, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Awesome!

Kim August 1, 2012 at 8:52 pm

I can’t pick a favorite because all of these are so funny and terrible. Thanks for the laugh Julia!

Des August 1, 2012 at 10:37 pm

OMG!!!! Those are hysterical…..thanks for the laugh!

Trish August 1, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Hysterical!! Thanks – I needed that!

Amnah Shurfa August 2, 2012 at 12:10 am

Absolutely hilarious! I had to hold myself from laughing out loud in the office!

Patience August 2, 2012 at 5:29 am

Priceless! I love it when you do these posts.

Lori @ Interior Domain August 2, 2012 at 8:50 am

These photos are just too funny! Thanks for the laugh this morning!

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com August 2, 2012 at 9:05 am

Ha! The deer is my favorite.

Julie August 2, 2012 at 11:22 am

Oh my gosh, these are great!!! Thanks for the laugh this morning!

cbean August 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Okay…you’re just having fun with us, right? Those could not possibly be genuine realter’s photos for house listing, could they ???!!??? (:

Missi at havoc-to-heaven.com August 2, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I love it when you post these photos. They make me and my kids laugh so hard. What are people thinking? Really.

Jenny August 2, 2012 at 5:17 pm


Ivan August 2, 2012 at 9:08 pm

(with tongue in cheek), maybe #1 is for a sense of scale – “Look, we can put three sofas, an adult deer AND a baby grand piano in our living room and still have room to walk around”
