Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos

By Homewithbaxter @homewithbaxter
A lot of the "before" photos of our home that I've shared with you on the blog are not true befores. I didn't start blogging until 6 months after we moved in so I wasn't in the habit of capturing those "oh-so-important-to-blogging-befores." I've felt like you don't understand the full effect of what I was working with when we moved in and therefore don't truly appreciate the amazing transformations I've done thus far (totally kidding!!!).  But I thought it'd be fun to show you our listing photos.
I thought that these photos were gone for good until I discovered Redfin the other day.  I created an account and POOF there were the photos from the listing!
You're in for a real treat. When we were house hunting,  Jake found this house and showed me the photos. Pretty sure I vomited in my mouth.  But, he convinced me to go look at it because it had many desirable traits if I could look past the decor (property, central air, dog fence, 2 car garage, sunroom, hardwood floors, etc.)  Of course, today I'm glad he dragged me to see it because 1) we ended up buying it (duh) and 2) its untapped potential is finally starting to reveal itself. :)
...But back to what it looked like when we did our walk through (all photos from Redfin):
1.The "formal" living room.  We had to take down those drapes when we moved in.  Quite a few spiders living behind there.  Ick!

2. Living room and dining room.  More drapes....

3.  The den.  Can you now see why I've been so excited about our den remodel?! Oh yea, they left those drapes for us too.  We put them out on the curb and I saw my neighbor snatch them up.  Maybe she made them?  Gawd, I hope my neighbors don't read this blog.

4.  The country kitchen. This kitchen was actually way more updated than a lot of the other houses we saw, so I'd say it was actually sort of a selling point even though it was not my style at all.  As you know, we underwent a remodel to remedy this (sneak peak pics here), and I owe you a kitchen update soon!

5. The foyer.  I loved the wainscoting, but the carpet had to go! Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
6.  The master bedroom.

7. The guest bathroom.  Why can't this kind of brass be back?  Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
8. Guest Bedroom.  The previous homeowner took these drapes... Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
9. Guest Bedroom 2.  This is the room I've been working on and hope to reveal to you Friday! Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
10. The Office.  Seeing this photo is like night and day compared to my home office makeover.   Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
11. The Sunroom.  I actually do like those pillows. :)

12. The Front.  I love the quintessential colonial look but HATE those dang bushes.  We're hoping to haul them out this fall. Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
12.  The Backyard.  The privacy was a definite selling point.   Our Home's Real Estate Listing Photos
What did your listing photos look like?  Better? Worse?
