DONT HAVE YOUR AGENT POST PICTURES LIKE THESE! 


Bizarre color schemes, filthy bathrooms and someone sleeping in a messy bedroom are just some of the unbelievably bad pictures posted by estate agents in their misguided bid to sell properties.

Bathroom walls covered ceiling to floor in mould, a swimming pool full of green algae and a living room crammed with oriental souvenirs including life-size statues and several plants are examples of the bizarre images designed to promote the properties.

The genuine images were posted on the Terrible Real Estate Agent website, which was set up by Andy Donaldson after he came across some awful photographs while hunting for a flat in London in 2013. 

This picture of someone asleep in a bed is among a host of terrible images posted by estate agents in their desperate bid to sell properties

Mr Donaldson, a 40-year-old digital media manager from Aberdeen, said the website started off as a joke between friends. 

But it soon became a viral sensation after he started sharing the hilarious images on Tumblr, drawing in around 100,000 hits a day. 

He said: 'The blog continues to attract hundreds of submissions and it is particularly popular with estate agents themselves, here and in the US.

'To begin with I spent a few hours a week searching for funny or bad images for the blog, but since it went viral I am now sent pictures from all over the world.'

'I get up to around 100 new images each week – and I have more than 2,000 great images saved for publication.

He added: 'The photos I am sent come from websites all over the world – from the UK, US, Canada, across Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan and even Kazakhstan.

'The intention of the blog is not to ridicule individual agents or agencies – it is a difficult job, and everyone makes mistakes sometimes.

'But if an agent wants to complain about their photograph being used on my website, they would have to admit that it was their photograph, and I think the estate agents prefer to remain anonymous.'  

Since then he's produced calendars and books and has had interest in Germany, USA and Canada.
