One of the first steps of putting your house up for sale in 2017 is taking flattering pictures of your property.
Of course, you can do this yourself, but many people opt for a professional job because the competition is so steep out there. Sometimes, a phone camera often just won’t do your home justice.
That said, it can be hard to plan for a professional photo shoot. If you have kids or pets, especially ones who aren’t camera-shy, then you just know they’re going to run around the house during the photo shoot.
After all, kids and pets have a knack for making mischief, like the pup who left ink paw-prints all over his owner’s home.
The last thing you want is a major mess in your pristine camera-ready interior.
But a mom in Australia recently experienced a different kind of household mischief. After she posted a listing photo on Bell Real Estate, she discovered that the shot also featured a sneaky interloper hiding in plain sight.
At first glance, this looks like a normal photo of a kitchen in a perfectly ordinary real estate listing.
The property in Australia is being sold by an agent with Bell Real Estate.
The kitchen looks pretty and functional.
It has plenty of storage and a pretty color scheme, not to mention lots of light flooding in.
But the kitchen also comes complete with an interloper.
There’s a sneaky someone who managed to wander into the shot without anyone noticing.
Do you see the intruder in this pretty photo?
Here’s a hint: our interloper is in the left-hand side of the photo.

Now that it’s all zoomed out, you can’t unsee him — though he does manage to blend in pretty well!
In fact, it turns out that no one realized he was there when the photo was staged.
There he is! Turns out, while the photographer was hard at work staging the scene, she had a mischievous audience of one.
This little guy is the son of the homeowner, and was clearly very interested in everything going on in his house.
Nobody even noticed his little face peeping out, and he made it all the way to the real estate website without anyone spotting him.
It wasn’t until a family friend spotted him that everyone started to notice that the photo wasn’t what it seemed.
The friend proceeded to post the photo with a caption saying, “I am literally obsessed with this kid who snuck into his family’s professional ‘house for sale’ photo shoot.”
In an additional comment, she shared, “DISCLAIMER: I actually know this kid and this house, it’s fantastic and you should all buy it and move to Belgrave with us.”
The house and family have certainly gotten a lot of attention since. Something tells me that the house will have no problem being sold.
