Selling your home will probably be the biggest financial transaction you make in your life, except for buying one. The way you advertise it will make a big difference between luring prospective buyers and ending up on the subreddit Ridiculous Real Estate.

You should always look at other listings your realtor has photographed, and always look further than just a one-image newspaper ad. But even with a professional taking pictures of your property, things can go wacky.

However, if your house is ugly, overdecorated, or cluttered, even the best photographs won't help.
