Our old house, which we’ve lived in and loved for 10 years went on the market.
And then last week, we got an offer, accepted it and now it’s off the market. Hooray!
We are beyond thankful that the right family found it, fell in love with it and made an offer. The deal isn’t done, done until the closing date, but we’re feeling good about it.
I thought it would be fun to share the listing photos – the last official photos taken in this very regularly photographed home :)
You’ll notice a few differences between the photos you usually see of our house and what follows.
- When listing a house, it’s all about staging, not decorating. Believe me, it was hard for me to take everything that has our personality out of the house and go so minimal. But it looks clean and like a blank slate ready for a new family and that is the point when trying to sell a house.
- The photographer turned on all the lights and processed differently than is typical on the blog or in a magazine. It isn’t necessarily my style and yet I absolutely recommend hiring a real estate photographer to take photos of your house if you are selling. People shop online and photos are everything.
Okay! Here is our beloved ‘old’ house:
Ah, sweet house. It has been so good to us. A place where we raised our babies, made such good friends, hosted countless parties, invited friends to live with us and was the perfect builder-grade canvas for us to add our style.
