Many realtors are downright horrible at taking effective photos of property for sale.

It is a seller's market in most of the USA -- I have no doubt these will find somebody who wants the house; maybe a non-believer, somebody for whom "orbs" is a selling point, or just somebody without dust allergies.

And what are these?

The woman filming the orbs around her daughters is a medium, and wanted to show what orbs are like.

She says they are her daughter's guides or guardian angels, or whatever term you want to use.

Near the end of the video, there is an amazingly bright one that flies close to the camera.

The quality of that video is quite poor, and hampered by the fact it's an old video and she's recording it from the tv....means those could be insects.

And I can't watch anything without a storyline for 15 minutes...

Oh come on now. I did watch the whole thing and those are not insects.

I'll make it really easy for you. Go to about the 14.30 mark where the super bright one flies close and tell me that's an insect.

The poorer the video, the more you can read into it because there's not much information in it. Most of the things zipping around look like they're probably dust blowing around, but what I see at 14:30 doesn't look like an insect -- it looks like a digital artifact in a very low quality image. It's a low-information video played on a TV screen then photographed with a cell phone, and that's supposed to be convincing evidence? Come on.

Almost all photos I've seen of "orbs" are explainable as dust motes, insects, or image artifacts (which are common in digital cameras). I've only seen a couple of "orbs" that were head-scratchers. Orbs would have no effect on my purchase at all. If I knew there had been murders in the house or some other terrible events, it would creep me out and I'd look elsewhere.

Aren't orbs in photos sometimes just "the light" or "dust"? Must they always be disembodied spirits?

Probably not insects.

I am guessing plastic beads.

They were insects.

I saw a much better quality video attempting to catch a light phenomena at a lake...saw lots of things that looked just like those orbs...and they were identified by the people trying to capture the the lake lights as insects.

The light phenomena didn't show up.
