4. Chino Hills, CA—Sold for $4,500,000—View what remains of the listing HERE.

5. Vancouver, WA—Sold for $230,000—View the old listing HERE.

The listing for this home was literally crawling with babies. From inside the sink to the hallways, this Vancouver, Washington house featured the same crawling baby in at least eight of its photos. The photogenic tyke caught the attention of sites like Hooked on Houses, and eventually a new owner because the home sold within months.

10. Philadelphia, PA—$1,850,000—View photos of the rest of the home HERE.

Dogs routinely appear in listing photos (more proof), but they’re not usually captured during such private moments.

11. Mars, As In The Red Planet—$30,000—View photos of the rest of the home HERE.

12. North Hills, CA—$2,600,000—View photos of the rest of the home HERE.

Some have speculated this was taken by the backup camera from a Toyota Prius. If successful, this could prove to be an incredible time saver for real estate photographers.

13. Chicago, IL—$289,000—View photos of the rest of the home HERE.

A lack of ceiling or walls is still no excuse not to stage a room for a listing photo.
