Unfortunately, and especially, if it's an REO home, the (potential) photos of the interior of a foreclosed home sometimes leave a lot to be desired. While I'm not specifically a "specialist" in foreclosures, I have been working with folks on both the buying and selling side of these properties. When I've listed foreclosures and REO homes I've done as much as I can to highlight what the home has and not purposely left out photos becuase they may not show as well when compared to standard listings. And to be completely level with you, yes, some agents don't probably do as much as they can in the photos department, but in many cases they have certain limitations out of their control that prevent a full set of photos.
I hope this helps, if any follow-up questions please don't hesitate to contact me, thanks...... more
