This Mesa, Arizona home is a short sale. It has a lot of visual distractions.
Unless the desk is staying with the house, why take a photo of it?
There’s still some counter space available for more clutter.
The photographer spared us from seeing more clutter.

We’re seeing dogs on sellers’ patios lately. They might be used to distract buyers from noticing the clutter.
What ladder? What lawn mower? What tire? All I see is a dog.
The four dogs and their owner are hoping you don’t notice the peeling paint and clutter.
At least the seller picked up the dog poop. It is disgusting to visit a home with a poopy back yard.
Pee pad? Gross!
This photo’s caption reads, “Loveable Joe.”

The can of Raid bug spray is disturbing. The large plunger indicates the seller probably has a recurring bowel problem. Do you like the swinging saloon doors to the toilet?

Many home owners customize their shower walls with decorative tile. There’s the enlarged checkerboard pattern.
The traditional checkerboard pattern.
A combination of checkerboard and 1980s 4-inch tile with wide, dark grout.

Another quality short sale!
The owners are hoping the bank will let them sell it for less than what they owe.
Therefore, you would think the sellers would present their home in the best possible way.
After all, they are asking a huge favor from their bank.
Has little Susie been eating the wallpaper again?
The nicest room in the house.
Dirty bathroom. Why would the bank be motivated to forgive their debt?

Why is a Home Depot bucket in the foreground of the real estate photo? And why is the photo taken so far away?
How about we crop the photo to eliminate the bucket and the rickety pergola? The focus should be on the pool and house. [By the way, those tall dead sticks are the ribs of a dead saguaro cactus. It is worth about $500+]

There was a time when mirror tiles covered entire walls. [Houston, Texas]
It’s a reflection of the times.
They added faux brick (bric-a-brac) to jazz up the mirrors.
I saw this on a Realtor home tour.
It’s used as a background for a bed.
