Taking pictures of a space you are trying to sell or rent is key, but often real estate photography is a tricky skill to master. A blog called Terrible Real Estate Agent Photographs is capitalizing on the comedic fails some agents have fallen victim to. The Tumblr is dedicated to "inexplicably bad property photographs."

Many of the awful photos are of homes in stunningly bad states, with molding walls or multiple paint splatters. Others have decor that would leave most would-be home buyers or renters hesitating, like a swastika in the shower or a velvet-lined bathtub. Other real estate photography mistakes have to do with timing, with unfortunately positions subjects including a man bent over, speakers on the toilet or an absurdly obstructive tree.
