Around me, the realtors want wide to make a room look spacious. That creates a challenge for finding points of view that won't make things look too strange. If it looks too distorted I show the realtor the back of the camera and let them decide. They invariably take the wider shot.
That's interesting. My clients don't want to have a buyer disappointed when a room is not as big as they thought from the photos so I am careful not to deliberately misrepresent the size of a room.
