Wow!!!! This is hilarious!!!! What go to people’s mind when they list something looking like this??? It’s incredibly funny though! 🙂 Wishing you a GREAT day, Julia! xo Luciane at HomeBunch.com Jennifer Creviston says 10.18.11 at 7:04 am 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. Carrie says 10.18.11 at 7:38 am Oh my!! I really have no words. The one with the little girl is a little bit creepy!! Ellen says 10.18.11 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!!! 🙂 Rick says 10.18.11 at 8:07 am 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. rick hookedonhouses says 10.18.11 at 9:13 am Ha! Love it. Shellie says 10.18.11 at 9:18 am What is wrong with people??? Mom in High Heels says 10.18.11 at 9:29 am Wow! The hand prints are CREEPY. BTW, hosting a week of giveaways on my blog. Come on over! Dean says 10.18.11 at 9:53 am HA! The fireplace really did make me LOL. And with a Mona Lisa portrait? How bizarre. Amanda @ Serenity Now says 10.18.11 at 10:46 am The snake just sent me over the edge. Really. Ick!!! Jimmy Welch - Realtor says 10.18.11 at 10:55 am Love the pictures and the holiday….the blood hands were the best! Arie @ The Ugly Barn Farm says 10.18.11 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 says 10.18.11 at 11:42 am Julia, Snake porn on your website? Well, now we have seen it all 🙂 Jenny says 10.18.11 at 12:13 pm Yikes! Lori-Anne says 10.18.11 at 2:22 pm 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 says 10.18.11 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 😉 Kim says 10.18.11 at 2:54 pm 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 says 10.18.11 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! threadbndr says 10.18.11 at 3:35 pm OK, fuzzy puppies in your photos – can turn off people with allergies. SNAKES in your photos – will turn off almost everybody! Donna @ Cooking + Praying says 10.18.11 at 3:56 pm And before this we only thought the hoarders were scary?!! Yikes! Juju at Tales of Whimsy... says 10.18.11 at 4:13 pm Goodness gracious! Yowzers. Nick & Anne: The Just Married Blog says 10.18.11 at 4:53 pm OMG, the little girl in the door way is hysterical. Creepy…yet hysterical. So “6th Sense.” shabbychick says 10.18.11 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. says 10.18.11 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 says 10.19.11 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 says 10.19.11 at 12:30 pm That gargoyle fireplace and the Mona Lisa just look so wrong together. Louisville KY Real Estate says 10.19.11 at 12:57 pm Hilarious…Thanks for the laugh. Kelly Berg says 10.19.11 at 7:56 pm so funny. that bed is just AWFUL!! thanks for the laugh. Ami @ parsnipsandpears says 10.19.11 at 9:08 pm yikes. that fireplace and bed is super creepy. Decor Girl (@TheDecorGirl) says 10.20.11 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 says 10.20.11 at 3:02 pm Wow this is hilarious. Particularily love that spooky child in the last photo. Ricki Jill Treleaven says 10.21.11 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. real estate listings says 11.16.12 at 6:47 am Second last pick reminds me of slither movie..
