DD- totally agree. People know when they're rehabbing, when the contractors are coming... weeks in advance. They have to get rid of it for the demo crew. Maybe they think junk is normal? Maybe they think if the pic shows it really bad (aka "welcome to hoarders"), it'll make the reno look better! Personally, I'd be mortified. Again, my "before" pics were the day of signing... and with an entire house to reno and 100 feet of overgrown gardens to rip out.. didn't care about prior owners "stuff" in (just) the kitchen.
