I had a listing of a well know international celebrity couple that had a nude photo of the themselves together. Tasteful, beautiful, exciting but appropriate for strangers to see? 

I asked them to take it from view and volunteered to house it at my place until theirs was sold!

Yes.  And it was disgusting.  People need to realize that if they want to sell their house they want to prepare the home with a sense of "Welcome Home" and not a vision of "Let's get it on!"  I have one goal in mind and it is "Let's get is SOLD!"

In the heart of Columbus Ohio was the home office for HUSTLER magazine.

Entering the lobby was a huge portrait of the receptionist, back to audience, throwing a birdie at the audience from between her legs.

Some 30 years later I walk into a West Chase home and 'Yowwie!" There is was! The subject of the portrait, and the owner of the house were not exact matches, but the tweak of a smile confirmed one and the same.

I did not get the listing, but I did get one heck of a story.

What I was doing in the lobby of Hustler is a different life and new story.

Paul,

I have seen some tastefully done.  It really does not bother either one of us if we are looking at a house.  We are not buying the pictures, we are buying the house.  I am more likely to be offended by taxidermy all over the house.  

I do understand that some potential buyers would be offended.  Perhaps the listing agent could call the Vatican and get some of the fig leaves that they discarded after using them on sculptures and paintings.

Have a great weekend, A

No, only some nude art. Why can't buyers focus on the home itself? Leaving those photo's up may be inappropriate and in bad taste (sellers' choice!), but it doesn't change the structure or the layout of the house! I am not condoning the practice, but isn't this equivalent to leaving because buyers didn't like the color of the walls?

No, but I certainly would hope that  an agent would put something in the remarks section of MLS, so you can prep Buyers.  The Sellers clearly felt comfortable leaving it up, so perhaps there was more to it.

    Something is in the air.  I showed two different houses to two different Buyers... both of the houses had nude photos of the owners prominently displayed. 

    One of the houses was "Listing Agent must accompany"; I pointed out the photo to him,  he quickly diverted my Buyer's attention to something else.  But they had seen it; it was a turn-off and a deal killer.
