Sweet Digs:Ta-daaaah!

What all the hoopla’s about:
It’s as if “Extreme Makeover: Home[page] Edition” did a major renovation on the Redfin site. Actually, the Redfin team has been working hard for months now on a face-lift, changing the site and incorporating customer feedback. Glenn Kelman, Redfin CEO, wrote about the revamp on the corporate blog.

I’m getting vertigo just looking at the photos from today’s most clicked property. These images are just plain scary and look like they could be stills from the movie “Blair Witch Project“. I am often amazed by the varying quality of images for house listings. Photography 101 should really be a required course for all real estate agents. It’s a disservice to the both seller and potential buyers if the photos are wonky… and don’t get me started on uninformative descriptions!

    You are so right. With some of the photos I’ve seen, I’m not sure if they are really trying to sell their houses, or just scare people away.
