A big thanks to Nina for sending us a link to a real estate listing for a home in Sweden, and it’s not your average listing. The photos have been tweaked with an old-world treatment and the owners (I’m guessing) were asked to pose in several of the photos in costume. Nina thought the listing was lovely, and I did as well when I glanced through them briefly the first time. After a second and third look, my feelings changed towards CREEPY. It sort of reminds me of an old Hitchcock/horror movie where in the next shot all the participants will be sprawled in pools of blood. Am I nuts? What do you guys think?
I'm baffled by what it is exactly that people find "creepy" about a fully-clothed woman and child ascending a flight of stairs to sit in a sun-filled room and read.
I am bothered by hat on the man. When it was fashionable for men to wear hats protocol required a man to remove his hat when entering a home. To this day I dislike hats worn indoors especially at the table. I think it is rude. The whole old fashioned theme did not ring true for me . . . largely due to the hat!
did anyone notice the guy (whom I find annoying) reading a paper…..in a room with a painting of a man reading a paper?
I find the boy/man annoying – he's that one character every college had – the overly dramatic, into himself and his *feelings*
ook. college was long ago, the character persists!!
Lin – the kid looks overjoyed.
I kind of like it, but I have followed this estate agent's work for a while. This one might be a bit out there, but listings from faboulous frank, the name of there real estate agent in question, in general are a sign of how much focus there is on online listings in Sweden.
From what I have seen from agent's listings around the world, especially for normal, middle-class, flats and houses, most, if not all, other countries have a lot to learn from how Swedish real estate agents work. To begin with Hemnet.se where you can find probably 90% of all Swedish real estate that is for sale at any given time, is something that every country should have, it is definitely one of the things I miss the most, while trying to find a new place to live away from home!
Amityville here I come.
Maybe they wanted to sell "history" since they can not sell well main maintained house…
Why oh why are they wearing their hats inside?
Clearly I'm focused on the important elements.
Why must there always be a little girl in a white dress? If that house wasn't haunted before, it is now, at least in the minds of anyone who has viewed these photos. She chants her nursery rhymes in a sing-song voice as she runs up and down the stairs. Maybe for some, this is a selling point?
But seriously, the house is loaded with potential, and the photos are really fun. Why not?
I don't find it creepy at all, I think its funny, it actually made me laugh. Mind you I never really watch scary/horror films, and I'm not scared of dead people 🙂
I would definitely check out this house if I were looking for an old home. However I would prefer that the actors had posed with a smile … I'm sure people were not that dull then.
Thanks for sharing!! love to see what others are doing.
