It is the Shed not the House

I have to repeat a funny story that happened lately on this blog.  Some friends of mine Allen and Nancy, expats here, are selling their house.  They plan on selling their house here, and buying a RV and plan on traveling around the USA and Canada.  They have it lined up where they can stay at RV parks and work off their rent and board for their RV, by some kind of work program.

They are selling their house by themselves, without a realtor, and Allen designed a web site and page, and is trying to sell it himself.  I told them I would post an article on this blog, and show some photos and post the website, and maybe they might find a buyer.

So I wrote the article, put a ton of photos off of their website, and included the website address, the usual stuff.  After I write an article or post something I always share it with the social media I have, like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.  I share every article I write  this way, and have been for a while.

All other social media, I can pick the photo I choose to use as a cover or introduction to the article.  A good photo will attract some viewers sometimes, that maybe might not necessarily read the article, but the photo grabs them.  It is like a newspaper with a headline grabbing photo on the front.  Well, the Nazis at Facebook pick out the photo for you.  I swear I can write an article and have photos of ten attractive woman, and one ugly woman, and Facebook will put the ugly woman on the post.  I have tried everything, even contacted them about it, to no avail.

So now when I write an article it is like roulette, you never know what photo is going to come up on Facebook.  I sometimes only include only one photo sometimes in an article, just so that will show up.  I am going to do that today also.  I have written numerous articles where the photo with the least significance to the story appears on the Facebook share.

I am in several Facebook groups, and one of them is Blogging Mexico.  I shared my article about their house on Blogging Mexico, and this photo showed up on the post on Facebook.

Now this is the photo of the sheds, not the house.  So I got this response from someone from the Blogging Mexico group.

Wow prices are getting unreal in Mexico. Can you find me some land further in and I can build new cheaper??”

This guy thought the shed was the house that was for sale for $220,000, and he thought prices here have gotten out of hand.
My response: “That is the shed, house is a lot bigger, Facebook posted that photo for some reason.”
Another response from someone else:  “Photo fooled me too…I thought it was a sarcastic post – look what $220K gets you here…a shed.”
I think that is very funny, people actually thought the sheds were for sale for $220,000, and that was all you got for that price.  So thanks Facebook for confusing readers, I really can’t blame the readers, I think it fooled a lot of people.
So if you want more information about this house go to this website.
Or you can contact them direct,
