One Thing to Remember When Doctoring Listing Photos

New, 12 comments




So, you're thinking of playing around with photoshop to remove the significant water stain spreading across the ceiling of that Bed-Stuy townhouse you're listing. That's a great idea! Nobody will want to buy a townhouse with plumbing problems and a water-damaged ceiling, especially if you are planning on claiming, in the listing, that the house is in "move in condition." Is it a nice thing to do? Not exactly. It is ethical? What are ethics, really? (Don't answer that.) The one thing to remember—and it's really just a tiny little detail to keep in the back of your mind—is that you probably shouldn't include the original un-doctored photo in the listing. That's all. Now have at 'em!
· Listing: 967 Greene Avenue [Corcoran]
