How can photography – and its fallibility -- make a huge difference in the purchase of your home? Oh, let us count the ways.
First, understand that pictures can only show so much – if the only bathroom is directly off the kitchen, you’re not going to know that until you walk into the house. The same goes for that third bedroom that barely fits a twin bed and looks out onto a wall. Basically, you’re only really going to understand the layout when you go to see a home in person. Pictures just don’t capture it all.
Here’s something to keep in mind: If there aren’t pictures of an important room such as a living room, kitchen or bedroom, there’s a reason. You’re going to find out about that lack of light or seventies-style décor eventually, but be warned.
Also, understand that pictures may be deceptive. If the curtains are drawn in a photo of a bedroom, it may be because the room looks onto a freeway onramp. Do you want that view?
Remember, if a picture’s worth a thousand words, then an informed take on those pictures is worth far more. Get in touch and I’ll help interpret the images.
