The Best of @REConfidential

Home is where people feel free to let their freak flags fly, so when a real estate agent takes a client on a home tour, what they’re actually touring is a part of the homeowner’s strange side. The things our agents encounter on an almost-daily basis include nudity, drugs, sex, abstract wallpaper, taxidermic oddities and countless other ways that are best described in pictures.

Since Redfin chronicles these on Twitter at @REConfidential, we decided to show our blog readers some of the best, and ask that you visit the @REConfidential Twitter feed and give us a follow if you get a laugh.

Awkward guest bathroom

This guest bathroom greeted us on a tour of a 5,000 sqft home in a gated community. Seems overly hospitable to me… pic.twitter.com/jCtCdgAG

This little piggy…

Looks like the sellers forgot to find a better place for the partially butchered pig. Warning: pic is a bit gruesome. pic.twitter.com/i7LUrDw0
