Ed and I spent all week getting the house ready for pictures yesterday. Ed is a much better (and more particular) house cleaner than I am, and it was great working side by side. By the time the photographers came, all we had to do was sit and watch.
We're going to list with Redfin, which not only is a discount broker, but also offers a cool 3D tour of your house (like Google street view). It took 3 hours in the morning for the photographer to take 173 scans of our house. The camera had 9 eyes and moves on the tripod. It was amazing.
We had the still pictures taken in the afternoon, and hopefully, we'll be officially on the market any day now!
