Real Estate Photos & The “Bowling Alley” Effect

Dining Room: 10′ x 12′
Living Room: 13′ x 23′

–MLS “Structure Information”

That distant Dining Room bay window in the center of the photo above looks like it’s practically in a different zip code.

How far away is it really?

Add the 23′ length of the Dining Room to the 10′ width of the adjacent Dining Room, and you get 33 feet.

Spacious, to be sure . . . but still in the same zip code.  🙂
