LOS ANGELES: More of that house portrait trend, i.e., hiring a high-end photographer to shoot your own home. It's purely a vanity project, but hey, if you can afford it. And it could help when it's time to sell. Via the Chicago Tribune: "George Penner of Deasy/Penner & Partners, a boutique real estate firm in Beverly Hills, Calif., has observed that potential buyers are often more impressed of late at seeing a house's portrait on the wall than in a magazine. "It gives the house cachet," Penner said, "and may even give it an edge in the market." [Chicago Tribune]
