Real estate agent rant

For the last 3 months or so Ive been looking into buying a house. I keep being surprised by the pictures that real estate agents publish... don't these people have decent camera's ? Or are all clocks here in CH really quite oval and does everyone have a 21 by 9 cinema wide TV ? And the way thr houses are shown from exactly such and such an angle to make it look like it is practically free standing in a field of flowers. Do they really think we won't google map the environment ? Like we wouldn't notice the honking great big church bell tower 20 meters from the bedroom window.

Its a miracle houses get sold at all, with the documentation pictures in mind prospective buyers are going to be so disappointed with the real thing.

And for this the real estate agents charge what, 3% or so ? For putting a few pictures in a pdf and posting it on homegate ? I'm still waiting for the first agent answering my question about room height (being 192cm tall 210cm room height is not enough), is that really too much trouble for a 20k commision ?

Also, once you decide not to look at anything within 500m of a church tower the amount of available houses goes way down... never realised there were that many churches here...
