The condo's been on the market for a week, but the snow storm that hit the mid-Atlantic took a lot of people off-line Wednesday and Thursday. So, this has been a pretty easy week. Since the brokers' open house on Tuesday, we've enjoyed our squeaky clean home without much interruption.
My thoughts might change after a while, but I've decided that living in a home on the market is a little bit like living in a store. I don't mind it at all...yet.
I've taken to checking out the MLS daily now and I'm amazed by the pictures on some listings. There are two other condos in my area on the market. The listing for one only shows pictures of our clubhouse, pool, and two closeup pictures of counters in the model unit that was here in 2005. The other listing, for a smaller unit, only has one, exterior photo.
When I took the photos for our listing, I took pictures of what I'd want to see - a walk through the condo, with images taken from multiple angles, and all closets shown. I'm always trying to imagine how my things would fit in a house I see on the MLS and it's amazing that many listings don't let you do that because they only show bits and pieces of rooms.
Any thoughts on what it's like to live in a home that's on the market? How about your take on MLS photos?
