I have seen houses where this look is generous.  A

Creepy.

I have one that I'll never forget because it had no floor. There was a gaping hole to the basement, no back door, so I could see the backyard and the cellar from the front door. It was a listing of mine in 2013 and I sold it in multiple offers. I never met a piece of real estate I didn't like.

Weird photo. But definitely a few with very negative reactions. One in particular - we weren't in there 2 minutes

What has been seen cannot be unseen.  Most unsettling image in quite some time.  Grats!

Depends on the buyer.  Some like the houses rough, others want polished.
