first time home buyer: More ..... Look what I found in my attic! - 04/15/09 10:43 AM
Last week, I continued by "cleaning out" of items in the attic.  If you haven't done this in a long time, plan to do it soon.  It is amazing what you have put away and now you will wonder WHY!!
Talk about laughing!  How long has it been since you found your first "professional" real estate photo?  Do you remember the "beauty shots"?  In fact, I still see some Realtors using them in their ads today.
