Your Condo Hard Sell Is No Longer Needed

It’s not clear exactly who it was that first noticed the oh, maybe 9- or 10-inch-tall object sitting upright in the background of a bathroom photo included in the for-sale listing on Cressida Glen Ln. in Crescent Park Village. The listing for the Alief property — just minutes from the Westpark Tollway! — was first posted 15 days ago, but it wasn’t until early yesterday morning that email and online discussions about it really got going. The photo caption read “Large master with jacuzzi tub” and showed the sink, toilet, and a bit of the shower curtain, but that’s not what caught your attention. “I called [the real estate agent] to give her a heads up and she hung up [on] me so I took a picture to post on the internet for eternity,” a Reddit user commented around 1 pm. An hour or so later, the photo was gone from the listing.

What photo? The NSFW one below:


No, not that one. That’s just the living room. Gotta set this one up just a bit first. “SHORT SALE– This open 2.5stry 2/2.5/1 shows like a model,” read the listing. And really, at $68,900 for a 4-year-old 1,430-sq.-ft. condo in the 77072, how could you go wrong?

Oh. Did you need that last image enlarged? Probably not, but just in case:

Not long after the Reddit user’s phone call, the listing wasn’t just withdrawn temporarily; it was terminated. (Although the other photos in the listing are still posted here.) “Makes me wonder if the homeowner saw it and got mad at the agent for posting the picture and fired her,” writes one of the readers who was kind enough to point Swamplot to the listing. “Who knows?”
