Hello Jorge,
I think that if you discover a mistake very quickly you will have a short time to change the photo. I don't know how long, maybe 10 minutes. After that you must wait 24 hours.

To Royaldevon: furniture

Thank you Bev,

To foxy: many years

Thank you Loong,
Staying in the queue for an apartment like this you should expect to wait for at least 25 years, possibly 30. Unless you already have an attractive home in a different location and...

To emka: colour

Thank you Malgo,
The colour of this house looks different depending on the light and angle. It looks very red in WS #2. Perhaps it gets darker with the age. I guess these houses need to be repainted...
