Not ALL REALTORS post deceptive pictures. The agents which do that probably believe that they are doing a service to the Seller, whom they represent.
In California, agents are not to be deceptive in their marketing tactics.
I hate wide angled lenses because they are so misleading.
I know many buyer agents will preview homes before showing their buyers. If this didn't happen for you have a conversation with your agent. Perhaps it is tenant occupied and there are extenuating circumstances.
Keep the faith.
Have an amazing evening.
