Sometimes estate agents surpass themselves. The one bed maisonette that had the prime feature as being in a great school catchment area was a good example.

What made the agents think that the first two pictures would help to sell the property best?

Any other examples?

Are you tired of living in 1970 already? Can't imagine Newport would be better!

In answer to the question, perhaps they're hoping to attract someone who wants to practice cricket in the garden?

Newport is in the Isle of Wight.

xD Oops sorry, was thinking of the Welsh one!

Did you see a sheep grazing in the garden?

Clearly not the Welsh one on that basis.

They have decided to push social distancing in the garden, to try attract someone currently stuck in a flat.

More than likely. But if I was paying someone £1500 to do that I would be pissed off.

I used Purplebricks to sell last home and did all viewings myself. They also let you set the order for photos and text on RM. I phoned 5 EAs and none of them would do for less than 1.5% (£8k!), so went with Purplebricks, did most of it myself, and it cost £900ish. Don’t know why anyone would use an EA unless very high end property.

Yes, dictionary definition of money for old rope, as is conveyancing.

I briefly heard yesterday on the radio that as a result of lockdown agents are seeing a ''huge surge in demand'' (TM) for properties with gardens, which probably accounts for the garden pics being front and centre.

The photos are really bad. I'd want to choose my own photographer I think, which is probably possible.
