Estate Agent Forced To Pull House Listing From Website Over 'Offensive' Photo

After bingeing four incredible seasons of Selling Sunset and one season of Selling Tampa, we now know the importance of choosing the right snaps to advertise homes - even if the properties aren't luxury mansions.

This brings us to a hilarious real estate faux pas when an estate agents in the UK were forced to remove pictures from a £200,000 listing after eagle-eyed house hunters spotted an ‘inappropriate’ banner.

The property listing, marketed by Nicholas Humphreys Estate Agent, boasted an 'immaculately maintained' buy-to-let investment opportunity being in a popular area close to Sheffield Hallam University City and Collegiate campuses and Sheffield College.

Pictures of the house showcase the four double-bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, kitchen and private garden.

Potential buyers online couldn't help notice the snaps of the lounge in the end-terrace property in Grosvenor Square, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

In the photos taken of the living room, golden helium balloons that read 'happy birthday' can be seen decorating the space above a wide-screen TV while underneath a banner reads 'let's party b*tches'.

We have to admit this is actually hilarious!

However, those concerned that they may be left with the sassy sign can be reassured that Pattinson Auction, who is auctioning the house, has said that photos are 'for general information and it cannot be inferred that any item shown is included in the sale'.

Since being alerted to the rude sign a Nicholas Humphreys Estate Agent spokesman said they appreciated the matter being brought to their attention and that the pictures would be replaced.

A Nicholas Humphreys estate agents spokesman said: "Thank-you for letting me know, I was totally unaware of that.

"I can see how that could potentially attract some attention - good, bad or otherwise - I do understand exactly where that's coming from.

"I think the best thing we should do is remove that particular photo from the stack, so thanks very much for bringing it to my attention - and also to the people who raised it.

"I think we should remove that and find another photograph of the lounge where we ask the tenants to remove the banner or alternatively just take another angle.

"It needs to be replaced clearly."

Pattinson Auction and Rightmove have been contacted for comment.
