Is this totally red room a set for the movie The Shining?  Redrum = murder spelled backwards.

Enticing curb appeal.  Only one shared wall.  White picket fence out front.  You know you want this house.  [Trenton, New Jersey]

Home In San Diego, Literally

August 30th, 2015 · No Comments

Home!  It has a sign that reads “Home.”  We weren’t sure.  Now we know.  The bigger question is: What’s that dirty rag doing on the floor?  [Thank you, Michael, for sending us these photos of a San Diego, California home].

Of all the cookbooks to fake stage in a kitchen, they pick “Dump Cakes”??!?!  There’s another view of the dirty rag.

Really nice home.  Really nice.  Too bad the kid is in the photo.  If you’ve been looking at several homes in one day, how do you remember each home?  “Oh, yeah, that’s the house with the Dump Cakes and the kid.”

Today would have been Michael Jackson’s 57th birthday.

The King of Pop lives on in Glendale, Arizona.

Yes, that’s a table fan!  I’ve never seen one before.  Hmmm.  Interesting.  Hope it’s high enough not to hit tall buyers.  Hope it doesn’t wobble.  Hope buyers don’t trip on its electric cord!

Home Signs

August 29th, 2015 · 5 Comments

Our reader Tyson is not a fan of cutesy signs in homes.  He sent us examples from a Queen Creek, Arizona home.

Eat!

Love Is All You Need!

It’s as if the sellers tried to copy new model home decorations.  All the signs come across as overkill.

Shoveling the Sunshine

August 28th, 2015 · No Comments

We have so much sun in Phoenix, you have to shovel the excess away.  And dream of Christmas when it’s hot.

Walls Need Help

Were they stoned when they stoned this wall?

A door was sealed over?

If they didn’t like the paint color, they could have painted over it instead of peeling it off.

It looks like siding and paper for an exterior wall, but this is inside the house.  Odd and ugly.

Why, Why, What?

August 27th, 2015 · No Comments

Why take this photo?  Why include it in a real estate listing?  Why not wait until the room renovation is complete and then take the photo of an empty room?

It’s pretty obvious, folks.  You take the photo, look at it, if you see yourself in it, take another photo.

Is that a print film camera?  Why are there buckets in the bathtub?

We see you.  Can’t you see you?

Nice try, but we still see your arms and camera.  Try again.  What is on the wall below the sink?

Oh, lady, come on.  Hire a professional photographer if you can’t figure it out.

Not only is a blurry photo not acceptable, you’re in the photo.  Take another photo.  Digital pictures are free.  It won’t cost a penny to take another one.
