Perhaps the house isn’t quite ready to sell yet.
This one too.
They can’t figure out why no one is coming to see their house. And they keep getting low-ball offers from investors.
These sellers at least made an effort to patch the hole.
The room now has a vaulted ceiling?

Bad real estate photography of a bathroom.
A slight improvement but still bad.
Getting better but still not acceptable.
Sigh. You would assume a photography with a tripod would know better.

Miserable looking dog in a kitchen.
He does not look happy.
Maybe he’s mad that his owners are selling the house?
He’s literally being pug-nacious.

Pink was a popular color in kitchens in the 1950s and early 1960s. Let’s take a look at four pink ovens that are still in use today after five decades.

Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos of a San Diego, California home. Built in 1956.
Imagine this space without the seller’s belongings. Wow.
Fresh like a daisy.
Check out the oven. Vintage 1956.
Indoor pool! Too bad it was neglected.
Could be a really cool space.
Vintage sink and bathroom.
Tudor style home.
The front landscaping could use some help.
Great potential here.

Please fix the shower curtain.
Please help the fallen-over chair. Thank you.

A winter lawn (lush green rye grass) makes a Phoenix-area home look pretty. Dog urine, however, will kill rye grass.

Think really hard and push. You’ll see big results if you put your mind to it.

It was popular in the 1990s and early 2000s to create massive built-in entertainment centers or media niches. Back in the day when TVs were narrower and also when big TVs were very deep. But nowadays, most of these media niches are functionally obsolete. Today’s TVs are wider and shallow.
This TV actually fits in the niche. But the surrounding niches only encourage home owners to become collectors. Future hoarders?
Sometimes they are used only to display items.
They can also be demoted to secondary status. The knotted curtain gets full priority in this room.
Or completely ignored. They’re also great dust collectors.
