Judgmental House Hunting

One of my favourite Facebook pages is Terrible Real Estate Agent Photographs. The photos are amazing, but the captions….they just make it. It’s glorious.

Now that we are house hunting, I have not only been searching for our dream home (which is important), but for terrible real estate photos of houses in our area (obviously more important). Have I found some as bad as those on the Terrible Real Estate Photos page? No. But have I got incredibly witty captions for the ones I have to make up for this? Also no.

Long before I ever owned property, I liked the idea of having a colour scheme of magenta and orange for a bathroom. So bright and cheerful. Fortunately I grew up and realized that many things I had thought were lovely when I was young were actually terrible.

I don’t think the person who designed this and selected the colour scheme came to that same realization.

Look closer at this picture. Closer.

Is that a mattress on the roof of the carport? I mean, maybe it could be something else, but it sure looks like a mattress to me. Has anything terrible happened on that rooftop mattress?


I can only imagine that wallpaper which reminds me that much of one of those Magic Eye books is going to give me a headache. What a shame I didn’t get the chance to see if a picture pops up if you stare at it long enough.

I am over looking for a house. By Monday, following a building inspection that day, we should know if we will be going through with a purchase of a house we have been checking out. Assuming we don’t find out it is held together only with termite shit, of course.


I need a new name for my blog. and I don’t have a imagination to come up with a new one. Help me to do so!

    You terrible human. So judgemental! At least, that is what I would of said if I had not been in agreement with each of your observations.
