How many photos is too many?

by sfishome on May 14, 2010

I read a NAR research report that said consumers get “tired” after about 5 or 6 photos.  So how about 35 photos where it appears they are trying to win a photo contest, not sell a home?  Here are 4 individual photos from the same listing that I put together:

What exactly do the above 4 photos sell?  And are the below any better?

The first set seems to be selling plants and fruit.  The second set seems to be selling furniture.

So tell me Buyers – do these convince you that you have to see this property?  Do you learn anything about it or just get some design ideas?

And Sellers – does this convince you that your agent is doing a good job marketing your home?

To me it looks like a photographer trying to show off and get more business.  Maybe it lends a luxury feel – but if NAR is right that buyers get “tired” after a handful of photos, no one will see them.  What’s your opinion?
