Questionable mls pictures on otherwise cute homes for sale
916 N. 6th Street in Burbank. It's currently for sale at $549,000. Although it's not my listing, I've been in this home several times over the years. In spite of the creepy Alice-in-Wonderland-with-a-knife, it's really nice -- it has 3 beds in 1481 square feet and lots of original details have been preserved. Only one bathroom, though. This house and the two next to it (one of which I sold) were built by the same builder in the late 1920's and it's in a great Burbank hillside neighborhood. The current owners are selling this at a loss. Now, I know weird listing pictures are nothing new at all, but for the sake of marketing, don't you think this interior picture of Alice (there are four angles) should have been left out? Somehow, weird interior pics just don't make me want to buy otherwise splendid character homes. Other shots show Frankenstein's monster in the living room, skeletons, etc.
