A house on my cul-de-sac, Churton Park near Johnsonville in Wellington, went for sale.

It's inexpensive by Wellington standards, in the 400's, and one of the lowest crime neighbourhoods.

So I guess the real estate agents, thought "hey, this house's is going to sell no matter what I do, so might as well do just the minimum."

Two pictures! One of the front, and one of the kitchen. The house was/is a rental, and mostly empty of furniture. It was tidy enough to photograph every room.

They totally neglected the beautiful view, of a horse pasture in the hills below, both in the ad and during the open house.

During the open house, I wandered through with almost no interaction. I felt like a shopper in a clothing store with bored teenage help.

I know it's typical of house sales nowadays, but a price range in the ad would be nice.

Definitely not going to use Guardian First National when I sell my house.

If the house is still tenanted, it's also highly possible that the tenant refused consent (as is their right) for any of their personal possessions to be photographed.
