Why do sellers keep using brokers who haven't figured out how to take a decent digital photograph? This was the first thing that popped into our mind as we looked at this new listing at 1217 Ditmas Avenue on the Kestyn website. (We lifted the exterior photo above from PropertyShark.) The second was that this one-family house (with two-car garage) could benefit from some staging. After all, it has some respectable bones but it has a very drab, dated feel to it. Declutter the furniture, take down those drapes, punch it up a bit, and you'd definitely have a better shot at achieving the $999,000 asking price. And get a broker who won't cut corners on the photos. You have to put your best foot forward in this market.
