A real estate agent has edited photos to advertise a dilapidated house with moldy bathrooms, holes in carpets, and dirty kitchen appliances.

The two-bedroom unit, in Wollstonecraft on the northern coast of Sydney, was launched last month with an asking price of $ 775,000.

The apartment was described online as a & # 39; rare opportunity & # 39; s with photos & # 39; of clean bedrooms and a spotless kitchen.

But it was later discovered that the photos were heavily edited to hide the dirty interior of the unit.

A forensic analysis showed that at least one of the photos, including the bedroom, had been digitally altered, & # 39; ABC reported.

The kitchen looked like it was unspoiled on the photographed photos and showed clean countertops and appliances, but the photos were edited

The photos placed on the online list showed a clean master bedroom with carpets in good conditions and perfectly painted white walls.

However, the walls of the room were actually discolored and the carpets were stained and fell apart.

The kitchen looked like it was in a pristine state on the photographed photos and showed clean countertops and appliances.

But the real kitchen was anything but clean. Photos showed a dated stove covered with dirt and rust, and countertops and back wall loaded with mold.

The real estate agency has since updated their online list with only legitimate photos showing the poor condition of the house after inquiring with NSW Fair Trading.

The damaged carpet of the main bedroom is now visible in the modified photos, but photos of the kitchen and the corridor have been completely removed.
