Estate agents slammed by house hunters – but can you tell why? | The Sun

May 9, 2023

AN estate agent has been criticised after social media users spotted 'bizarre' photos of their properties on Rightmove.

Three properties listed by ACDC Sales and Lettings appear to have photoshopped images, and have gained attention for their editing.

One property in Coventry has pictures that appear to show doctored floorboards and a floating fireplace.

A second, on sale for £1.1million, seems to have the same 'sneaky' edits.

One section of the wall seems to be modified – and people are questioning what the estate agents are trying to hide.

The wine cellar appeared so edited that people speculated as to whether it was fake – with one social media user branding it 'tragic'.

A third property in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, looks like its radiator has been edited.

People have taken to social media, slamming the rooms as so wonky they look like they are 'from a cheap video game'.

They said the edits were 'wild' and 'tragic', with one person claiming he was tired of estate agents 'flying to close to the sun' to make a sale.

Another user said: "I don't know what's real anymore! The more I look, the more I doubt my own existence. None of the walls look straight and it's causing me great anxiety."

A second questioned: "Why would any decent estate agent put photoshopped photos on a million pound house? Bizarre."

One said: "Why badly photoshop a fireplace in like that's going to convince someone that this place doesn't need a complete renovation."

Estate agents can photoshop images of properties as long as this does not misrepresent the property.

They can, for example, make the sky in the background look more blue.

After being contacted by reporters, ACDC Sales and Lettings removed one of the pics and replaced it with the original version.

The Sun have approached ACDC Sales and Lettings for comment.

This comes after a luxury riverside home up for sale had a major photoshop error in the pictures.
