House Tour - Basement and Backyard

Continuing on with the tour of our house. If you missed the first two parts, check out the Main Floor and Upstairs. Here is our disorganised, messy basement. The TV area: My crafting area: Gratuitous picture of my little one in her new snowsuit from Nan and Poppa: My backyard with the beloved patio that was so much hard work: I will miss it and all the trees and birds around here, but I'm having fun planning out our new yard. Trees will be planted as soon as the ground thaws in the spring (so, in June)
JK has recently discovered that she loves playing in the back yard. She screams if I try to take her inside before she's ready.*****
As I expected, I absolutely hated the pictures on our real estate listing. They were dark and horrible. The lone picture of our living room did not show the size of the room, or the lovely fireplace. Nope, it showed our couch. That lady should not get paid to take pictures. So I emailed our realtor and asked him to put my pictures on the listing instead. I think he may be annoyed with me, but he said he'd do it and I emailed the ones I wanted yesterday afternoon. Their admin person said it has been updated and the mls site should soon show the change, but as of right now, it's still the old ugly pictures. The realtor's website has the old ugly pictures, plus two of my pictures. They had better be taking down the ugly pictures. I tried to explain myself clearly without being overtly offensive, and I apologised for being a perfectionist control-freak. But our realtor doesn't seem to think that pictures on a real estate ad are important at all. I beg to differ.

  5. I see you got the chinese guy commenting too. WEIRD. lol Sorry about the bad photos on your mls! How annoying. And YES, photos are very, very important on a real estate ad. Lots of people are shopping online these days and first impressions are everything! My bff is a real estate agent and she despises bad photos on a listing. Good luck getting them changed!!
