You can almost taste the lead-based paint by looking at it.

Might be a lot of fun to scrape the paint?

Before & After Remodel

May 2nd, 2015 · 3 Comments

Before Living Room.  The house was purchased for $125,000.

After Living Room.  They tried selling it for $200,000 but priced too high.  Then at $175,000 with no offers; still priced too high.  It eventually sold at $155,000.  Marginal profit at that price.  Lesson hopefully learned.

May our home always be too small to hold all of our friends.   Why not get a larger home?  Your friends won’t complain about being too cramped at parties then.

Taking real estate photos of bathrooms can be very tricky.

Mirrors are hard to shoot around.

Mirrors are a reflection of your photography skills.

Sometimes two photographers are needed to get the right shot.

Professional attire is recommended if you are going to be included in the photo.
