Layout Problem . . . Solved!

“One nerd is an island.  Two are a club.  Three are a clique.”

–Ross Kaplan, based on observing my 12 year-old son and his friends.

Non-Realtors would have no reason to know this, but photos on MLS are designed to lay out horizontally.

So, if you input 17 horizontal photos and one vertical one (18 is the max allowed), the result is unaesthetic and odd-looking.

The solution?

Input two such photos, side by side.

That creates a symmetric — and appealing — layout.

Thanks to Mare Sukov at Edina Realty’s front desk for figuring that one out.

P.S. The photos above are from my new listing at 4812 West 28th Street, in St. Louis Park’s Fern Hill neighborhood.
