A couple months ago, we ran you through the worst (or best) property listings in Australia. From flashy to classy to trashy, there were some real gems in there—but the feedback we received was loud and clear: just show us the REALLY bad ones.

This, it seemed, stemmed from people's fascination (or perhaps disdain) of the notorious kitchen toilet:

The potential buildup of flammable gasses surely can't be OHS approved.

With this in mind, we once again scoured the internet—this time only for the VERY worst listings we could find.  And soon discovered an entire website dedicated to our cause.

This site truly is a treasure trove of questionable photos (and amazing captions), so we decided to pick 13 of our favourites. Brace yourself for a hilarious—and often times disturbing—journey through the worst real estate listing photos ever.
