Spill the Beings?

March 29th, 2017 · No Comments

What is that giant stain on the carpet? What spilled there? Blood? Motor oil?

170329a

Did it run toward the wall or did come from under the wall?

170329b

Similar stain in another room. Creepy. This wasn’t a one-off. More like two people were “offed.”

170329c

From another room in the same house. Shots fired?

Too Much of a Good Thing Is Not Wonderful

March 27th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Multiple items. Multiple patterns.

170327a

Overly decorated living room.

170327b

Assault on the senses.

If buyers could see past the stuff and notice the high ceilings and nice flooring.

Too much furniture for a small space.

Too much going on.

Fan-tastic Home

Fans are prominent features in this home.

170321a

Having a fan in a real estate photo tells buyers that the house does not cool off properly.

170321b

Another fan. Window air conditioners also tell buyers that the house is too hot. Or does not have central air conditioning.

170321c

Foil! And hats!

170321d

Another fan and another window air conditioner plus foil.

170321e

Same room, same fan, more clutter.

170321f

Another window air conditioner but no foil or fan?

170321h

Yep. This house has no central air conditioning.
