The tireless “how much Photoshopping is too much” debate extends to the real estate market. According to an article from bankrate.com in MSN’s real estate section, the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) legal counsel says the organization’s code of ethics requires agents to provide a true picture, although some touching up is allowed. Basically, it’s up to each agent to decide what the limitations are, which has some potential home buyers annoyed.
Some realtors take their own photos, while others hire professional photographers. So is there really a big difference between editing the lawn to look greener after the photo is taken vs. paying a pro to take the shot with the most flattering light and angle? Maybe, maybe not.
