A Touch of America

By
Real Estate Agent with Troxel Realty Co. LLC 6501344841

I was out photographing houses yesterday in a rural area, and trying to locate a house for a client.  I finally found it after having some difficulty locating the address numbers. 

Here is the address of the home I needed to photograph.  Originally I missed seeing it because it was on the mailbox, and the numbers were not clear.  When I went through the photos later, I thought I would share this.  It looks like a touch of Americana to me.  What do you think?

In this economy you have to save every dime you can. Why spend $5-10 on numbers when you can just draw them in.....

I am sure I would have missed that address too! It makes it hard to sell, if you can't find the house.

Michael,

Yes, a case of doing what you have to in a pinch and then never fixing it. :)

Hi Micheal,

If the post office says that is the address, who are we to think any different. They would never deliver mail to the wrong person..I am serious. No, sometimes there are mistakes but the USPS does a heck of a good job to get the mail delivered 6 days a week. I love the picture!
