I cannot imagine anyone buying or even looking at a home with creepy dolls.  Who would think that was good advertising?

An investor's dream ... scary dolls don't factor into the numbers.  They look at the bottom line only. 

A creepy mindset of anyone who thinks it is in any way appropriate or professional.

It says contract pending... I don't think investors care, as long as the numbers work. 

But I would never turn a listing into a creep show - fixer-upper or otherwise. I am not sure which kind of buyer this listing agent is targeting?

Jeff,

When you place a link here, please be sure you have it opening in a new page.  What happened in this instance is that Z opened two pages, and I had to close both of them and re log in to Active Rain.  I have not idea why the agent did that...warped sense of humor?

I think someone is trying to get exactly this reaction.  A dumb publicity stunt to attract eyeballs.

It does not matter. That house will not be bought by a typical buyer, so, they couldn't care less.

That house was creepyier than the dolls, though it would not attract much interest at that price around here.

However the dolls must be working, they caught your attention and prompted a share.

Jeff Pearl Reminds me of the GEICO commercial where the guy goes into the attic of his newly purchased home only to get creeped out after discovering a variety of manikins in various decor and in different states of physical condition.

Apparently we are all to ancient to recognize the market segment this is targeting. That is happening more frequently the past years.
I do similar things to appeal to the buyer who I project will show greater appreciation of the property.
Creepy dolls....don't see how I can make that work.

If I was the seller, I would raise a stink with the agent...unless the seller o.k. it in the beginning.

Not cute. Not funny. Creepy and stupid. The house already looks bad enough.

Well being Louisana it may have something to do with voodoo!  Who knows but it is creepy!  Since the house looks like a haunted house maybe they think it will help sell it!
