The back yard and pool area is absolutely stunning. And it is amazing what a fresh can of paint can do to a room. I try to tell people this all the time.

I love the hardwood and tile flooring.  The paint in the dining room really makes it shine.  Great photos.

I too love the landscaping and back yard. That would sell me in a second! But very, very nicely done!

Hi Pippa,

If you can move the property to South Carolina, you got a deal.

It is amazing what a difference painting can make.

We just listed a home which was re-carpeted, re-painted and had the kitchen counter tops upgraded to Granite. To see the photos, see my blog "Ready For Sale".

A great listing, some great photographs and a great post.

Good luck with it.

That is an amazing house and some equally awesome photos. Are you marketing that with a single property website? I own and promote doubleenddomains.com which is an excellent tool. I can make you a demo site if you like or answer any questions you have. Good luck with your transaction.

I had a client I did a new home in Bergen county some time back get relocated to Texas, he had built a new home in Texas when he moved there and than was moving back here. (3 MOVES). Corporate relocation's. We figured it was about 1/2 the price minimally in Texas to northern Bergen county.

Are you a photographer? What camera did you use? Those were some very nice pictures. Keep up the great work. Great work.

I agree with Lanre, whichever camera was used (if it wasn't the settings themselves) did a fantastic job presenting the lighting.  It definetely appears a wide angle lens was used perhaps. Very stunning pictures.

Lanre ... No, I'm not the photographer.  These were professional photo's!
