Our New House {The Real Estate Photos}

*In case you missed Monday's post...we bought a house! Catch up on the details over here.*

I don't know about y'all, but I LOVE stalking looking at real estate listings. There's something so fun to me about virtually touring other people's homes. Interior design and home blogs provide the same sort of thrill, but they're typically edited to showcase only the pretty stuff. Real estate photos, on the other hand, can be amazing, but they can also be downright awful. You'd think that the seller would want to have great photos to show the house off in the best way possible so the it sells quickly for asking price, right? There's a reason home staging and real estate photography are whole industries in and of themselves!

And yet...sometimes you find yourself looking at photos like the ones that were on our house's listing that leave something to be desired.   Let's just say that it didn't show very well :). The house sat on the market for awhile and I'm thinking these photos might have had something to do with it. 

Want to see the house as we saw it for the first time? 

Let's start at the front, shall we? Hello weeds! Our house is the one in the middle you can barely see with the front porch and very brightly lit second level.

In through the front door, you enter the living room. With all that furniture lining the walls and the lack of light, it looks cramped and sort of dungeon-like. The people who lived here before us sadly never opened their blinds - there's actually a good bit of natural light on this floor!

Heading into the dining room...

Nothing like crooked photos to make it look like the house might be falling over, right? I promise it's not. I can't wait to show y'all photos of this space soon. It's changed SO much in the past couple of weeks!

The kitchen is a great size, but unfortunately, the folding table and hanging pots make it look cramped and small.

Now we're off to the second level. This is the back bedroom with the unusual furniture placement. I think they used it as an office and tv watching room of sorts.

This is the middle bedroom. I'll be honest, those pig cut outs and animal masks totally freaked me out the first time I saw them. Creepy, aren't they? Yikes.

The infamous purple bathroom. Enough said.

And lastly, the master bedroom. This room has changed a ton as well. It's amazing what new flooring, paint and a new light fixture will do!

So that's the real estate photo house tour! Now tell me, if these were the photos you saw of the house, would you have gone to see it in person? Would you have bought it?

When I walked into the house for the first time, I knew it had great bones and incredible potential, but knew it was going to take some work to get there. It's already come a long way! More updates to come soon!
