Yes, it's ok to enhance and filter, so long as you are being truthful in your advertising. You can't crop out a power line for example or "make a property appear to be something it's really not".

I shoot what's there, but I always stage the house first and  improve the "lighting" of my photos that come out too dark. But I do not "remove" power lines or hide things through Photo Shop, in fact my listings have disclosures on the MLS in advance. I want serious buyers, not just busy listings. I get mad when agents hide the obvious or say "ocean views" (when you get there you have to stand on the toilet and crane your neck out the bathroom window to peek a boo it through the trees).

Enhance, Not problem with that at all.

Digitally augment with with artists vision of potential....that may be a foul.

Misrepresenting the property. Now that is a problem.

Recently (this weekend) found one of my listing on  the DARKSIDE (Z) and they replaced my property description with that of another property. 

So, before I start the "You don't look like your image" spiral to nowhere, I would want to get the bigger picture regarding misrepresentation and those who collaborate in the process. 

An enhanced image.....that is not even in the top 15.

Be aware, a great looking property that is priced 15% below market value has a surprise behind the door. But as professionals, we know that.

John Meussner marketing of a listing is 'SHOWTIME' and one must do anything to bring people to preview the home!

Of course, one needs to be authentic and real about it, however, people now-a-days buy because of the competition. If they see 20 guests at the open house because of great staging and excellent pictures, the home is likely to be sold - soon! And that's what is our job as a listing agent!

Years ago Amanda and I flipped homes.  Neither of us had a real estate license, so we used a local Realtor.  

One of the homes we flipped was a foreclosure and had an inground pool in the back yard.  The pool was removed and there was just a mudhole left.  Also, it was winter.  

Our Realtor came out to take pictures and then sent us the link online once he had it up.  

The picture of the back yard was full of photo shopped lush green grass.  

I made him use the real pictures.  

Today we use a professional photographer.  His background is artsy, so we've had to ask him a few times to tone down the colors a bit and give a real representation of the home.

Our Realtor Code of Ethics demands truth in advertising so if a photo is enhanced so much to remove power lines, make the rooms seem twice as big, etc. that is false advertising. To enhance color or sharpen the image or remove a trash can from the front of the house present the house in a better light but are not untruthful.

Contrast, brightness, sharpness, sky on outdoor photos are all OK in my book. I hate the indoor shots where the outside is enhanced in the glass areas, but I've nothing against that ethically, it's just a personal bias. 

Changing features indoors or out? No. Removing obstructions from a picture vs. having the photographer move to an unobstructed location? No. Making the listing look pristine when the reality the buyer's see on their visit is a mess? No.

Filters and enhancments to showcase the home in the best way possible are fine vs edits that misrepresent or are misleading would not be ok unless labeled as such.  I have seen virtual staging or artist rendering that when properly labelled are appropriate.

I stopped using a particular photographer who just couldn't resist overdoing it on the filters no matter how much I asked to tone them down to a more natural look.  Why does the tile floor look shiny and bright orange, when it's actually a beige with a matte finish?

I have seen photos of the home with shrubs planted along the front of the driveway. In "real life" the shrubs no longer exist. Do the people who enhance the photos really think buyers and other agents aren't going to notice? Be real!

Sadly I've been on a few online dates just like that - had to look at their picture a few times just to see a resemblance.

So, Yes, That would bug me if I saw a house like that too.

However, More common (I think ) are the BAD picture problems.

It's obvious when you see good quality pictures and also when someone has taken the time to actually think about they pictures they show.


I just love it when I see pictures of 1/2 a hall way floor or a staight down shot of the gravel driveway, or the open toilet. Especially when the house has a sun room, pool, new kitchen or all wood library . etc..


I agree: Don't fake the pics, but do show the house in a quality way.

You still want to put your best foot forward like you were saying.



Hmmm I wonder if that hallway WAS the best of that house?~ haa~

Yesterday, during the weekly Broker Preview meeting for Irvine/North Tustin, an Agent told us about her listing.  She told us to warn our clients the home wouldn't look as nice as the photographs, so prepare them accordingly.  She also said if the Seller was home, please ask her to leave you alone while your clients view the property, and the house is probably overpriced, and even if you don't know anything about Woodbridge, please tell the Seller you know everything there is to know about Woodbridge, and Irvine.  At least she was honest.  We were all laughing while she was presenting her listing ... it was plain the Seller was unreasonable, and controlling, and I could feel all the Agents in that room were glad it wasn't their listing.

Enhancing is fine, and minor adjustments in lighting but the photos need to represent the house correctly.

A common gripe I hear from buyers is that the wide angle shots make rooms look much larger than they are, and they are disappointed when viewing the home in person.

I rather have buyers pleasantly surprised then disapointed. Less is more. I don't use 25 shots showing every angle of the seller's furniture. Depending on how many rooms I like 4 or 5 professional interior shots. LR, DR, Kitchen, Bedroom. Floor plan is a must and I think even more important than photos. 

I wouldn't alter the property but I must admit I have an exterior shot of a listing that had a white van parked in front of the building that had ugly grafitti on it when photographed (it really annoyed me) so I erased the graffiti on the van parked on the street. Not misleading because it won't be parked there when buyers come and it's not part of property.

It does sellers or online daters no good to offer a less than accurate representation to potential buyers or suitors.

If an in person meeting offers a big, bitter disappointment and causes the buyer or suitor to compare the photos with the in person product to detect a similarity, the deception has done more harm than good.

I'm not a fan of it, but if a room photographed dark because you didn't have enough light to offset a window, then yes I'm in agreement with lightening it up.  As to editing everything, it's like putting lipstick on a pig.  At some point you have to either clean the room or get a pro in.
