😯 Holy moly.

But, if it's in a desirable area, sometimes I love houses with stupid pictures because that gives me time to see if the house looks better and we can get an offer in before anybody else notices. Buyers will turn their nose up at homes that have stupid pictures.

I think 2005 represents the best it ever was and would assume it is downhill from there. If you have time to preview it might be advisable or just scratch it off the list.

I'd be so tempted to call the listing agent and ask if it is okay to take pictures during a preview since you noticed the photos were twelve years old.  Who knows?  Of course, you could get there and the home could be in worse shape.

Oftentimes, agents are lazy or cheap.  The agent who used twelve year old pictures seems to be both.  An overachiever in all the wrong ways.

Did the Realtor use old photo's? If so that is a terrible Realtor I feel sorry for the clients. If it has been on the market for 12 years the Realtor should be updating the photo's long, long before 12 yrs.

Anna Banana Kruchten, CRS - maybe, they used the wrong timestamp on camera! The benefit of a doubt until you see the home.
