Every morning on my Chicago area social media feed, I see acres and acres of empty rooms posted by Realtors. So many empty dining rooms, breakfast rooms, kitchens, living and bedrooms. Do I stop and click on the photo, intrigued to have a look at the room, the house, the property? No, I just scroll on by... Do I read the eloquently written description? Do I appreciate the professional photography? No, I just scroll on by... Why? It's that they all look the same; devoid of any senses, any flavor, any style.
