When you think of your dream home you may be thinking country house, a house close to the beach or maybe a penthouse in the city. Would the interior be modern and cool or something older with a bit more character? While it’s exciting to think of your dream property the reality of many property listings can be rather disappointing and somewhat outrageous.
I have put together 26 property photos that should make you laugh and show you how to promote your property if you don’t want to sell it.
If you want to watch your washing dry that’s fine by me but maybe you should use that ladder and do something with that wall
Here’s an example of how a storage room should look like. That racking looks extremely safe not to mention the light or the whatever is all over the floor!
Come on at least clear the room of clutter before taking a picture. I’m glad the beautiful curtains are closed you don’t want people looking in or maybe you don’t want people looking out.
That’s a modern TV right there. Why don’t I sit in all the dust and watch the latest Netflix series oh hold on wait can someone help me turn this bad boy on?
Just take the picture no one will notice the rubble next to the entrance or the gaping hole above it! Have a swig of gin or whiskey and forget all about it.
Check out my garden pit guys doesn’t it look nice and green? Maybe someone will want to make this into a pool?
Don’t bother making the bed, the quality on my phone isn’t that great I’m sure no-one will notice!
This is the room where I store my crap, you can do the same, better yet I’ll throw this in free if you buy my property!
How romantic! We can both sit here and do the laundry. I’ll take the dirty chair and have a shower after said no one ever!
What is this room? Why is the water pipe like that? Must be some new design!
I love sitting on my desk and hoping the desk doesn’t break. That’s where I do all my best work.
Damn it, I knew it was a random place to put a curtain but I should have closed it so no one can see the mess behind it!
Who needs a bedroom door when I can put 2 chairs out and pretend I have personal security?
This won’t be on the market for long…. but for what reason?
Just a normal modern otiose bathroom…
Glad I painted the doors purple, my feng shui is on point!
I’m always thinking of ways to be more efficient that’s why I have my washing machine in my bathroom. Undress, put clothes in washing machine, shower, done! See I’ve just saved my self 5 minutes! Does my shower curtains and washing machine cover match?
Who doesn’t like cocks on their kitchen wall? It’s very Nandos’esque right? Everyone loves a cheeky Nando’s!
Not a bad picture but damn that’s bright!
I have a magic car park. The cars stick to the roof!
My underwear can be in this picture, they’re clean. Let me leave a clutter of paperwork on my desk too that way they know a serious worker lives here!
This room has the best view in the house, great to dry clothes and store random crap.
First of all, why that colour? Secondly, that’s the smallest bath I’ve ever seen? Is this where elf’s live?
Don’t know what I’m taking a picture of but better take it anyway!
French doors, check! Just need to fix the glass.
Let’s take a picture of this, leave the step ladder and duster in there. This is going to be a cool picture!
I’m all for people taking their own property photos but please use your common sense! If ever in doubt hire in the professionals.
I hope you enjoyed the funny fails and got a giggle or two out of it. Please share and like.
In order for a company to grow and reach it’s future aspirations and goals it must include Digital Transformation.
The speed of change in the the digital transformation world is exponential. A few benefits of the digital transformation include; new ways to engage with clients, more data insights to harness and more innovation in the work force.
By 2022 worldwide spending on technologies and services that enable digital transformation is expected to reach almost $2 Trillion with companies allocating 10% of their revenue to fuel their digital strategies. This year 75% of all digital transformation spend are accounted in hardware and services.
Now more than ever it is imperative that IT strategies are a large part of any company’s business plans in order not only to grow but to compete effectively. The need of IT to support the future of the business is paramount
For any leaders and business owners this can be a challenge, with more business applications, more connected devices and higher expectations today’s’ business leaders must move at such a fast pace similar to that of the front end business. They must focus on projects than can really improve the business for the future.
We are now living in a digital first world. Here are some reasons why digital transformation is essential for any business to grow and stay ahead of the competition.
Employers are always looking for productivity improvements with digital technology playing a huge role in this and helping employees with their primary day to day roles.
Digital transformation provides valuable opportunities for core business functions such as payroll, finance, HR and lead generation moving them away from manual processes and or bringing in the experts and their services thus allowing the leaders of the company to focus on wider business opportunities and the staff to focus on what they do best and enjoy the most.
The customer of today expects the same kind of services they receive with technology in their personal lives but for a business this can be challenging. We now have so much choice both in terms of where and how to deliver applications from and who to partner with in the delivery of services.
Businesses increasingly demand more agile and hybrid IT services as well as network capability. Not forgetting about getting the user experience right is a critical part of the process. This goes much further than the usability of apps but includes the experience of the IT Team, their tools as well as bringing in expert partners.
Are you struggling to find regular and consistent real estate clients? Our expert team and Hybrid services can help you!
Security will always be top priority. One of the biggest challenges business owners face is collating more and more data whilst keeping it secure. This complicated task continues to be challenging. It constantly needs strict enforcement around access, compliance and protecting attacks. If you have the best strategy but have an under performing network this could cause staff to go elsewhere due to faster speeds, flexibility and overall better quality. For example if your agency is getting low quality leads from portals and exhibitions whilst your competitor is getting regular and consistent good leads to nurture and close where would you rather be?
It is essential that a progressive business implement a security strategy to keep their customer and company data secure on all networks and apps regardless what services or service providers are being used. We at Qube Media ensure we are fully compliant and ensure our data security is taken very seriously.
In order to transform digitally you must surround yourself with business and technology partners that understand the business goals and vision and can operate ethically and with transparency to achieve these.
