Oceanview House Marketed With Baffling Pics of Trash

New, 17 comments

The five-bedroom house at 47 Lobos Street is up for sale and asking just $725,000, a fairly low price for the San Francisco market. However, whoever put the place on the market sure hasn't put a lot of care into getting it ready for sale. The very first photo on its listing is of a garage with bags of trash and bins sitting out front. The second photo is even more baffling: it's of some discarded wooden framework. It only gets worse from there.

Whoever is currently living in this place—according to the listing it's tenant-occupied at $3,500 per month—clearly collects a lot of trash, given that pics of the interior show overflowing bins as well. We don't begrudge the current tenants their messiness, but we really wonder why whoever shot the photos chose to feature an up-close image of a wire rack with a lifetime supply of Tupperware.

There's also a shot of a mound of cleaning supplies, another of a dark room filled with old stuff, including a solitary crutch, and another up-close of what appears to be some damage to a wall. Oh, and of course, there's the picture of what appears to be a Spongebob Squarepants pillow—always a big selling point when listing a home. And, in the garage, literally a chest full of watermelons. We are so, so confused.
