Emergency Kits

September 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

Entry without carpet on the left. Kitchen in the back left. Dining in the back right. Living room with stained carpet to the right.

Dining room with extra carpet. And emergency kits.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Hallway, no carpet.

Opposite view, hallway, no carpet.

Bathroom.

Guest bathroom. And there’s the guest!

Bedroom.

Another view of the bedroom. Did we have to see the bras?

Back yard. With outdoor carpeting.

Brick House (On the Inside)

September 17th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Sarah found this Georgetown, Delaware home with a lot of brick on the inside.

“All in all it’s just another (1000) brick(s) in the wall.”

The brick virus spread to the kitchen.

They even bricked the fish tank stand.

Partial geodesic dome home in Georgetown, Delaware. But will buyers be partial to the odd window placement?

Thank you to our reader Sarah for sending us photos of this unusual home.

On a Shoestring Budget

September 16th, 2017 · 2 Comments

The cost of selling a home can seem too high for some sellers. So they cut corners and hire an amateur photographer, for example. You get what you pay for. The photographer didn’t get out of his/her car and didn’t get close enough to the condo in order to not include the shoes on the electric wire or the ugly dumpster. What first impression does this photo now give to buyers?

Fake Mold

It’s as if they spray painted the bathroom to look like mold and mildew.

First impressions matter.

Proceed with caution.

Bad roof.

Pretty in pink.

Dirty Laundry

There have been no floods or hurricanes in the Phoenix area. How do you explain the filthy floor of this Mesa, Arizona laundry room? And why did the sellers include this photo for buyers to see?

Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Hinges & Handles

September 10th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Overkill on the kitchen cabinet hinges and handles. Thank you to our reader Sarah for sending photos of this Laurel, Delaware home.

They need to replace the paper towel roll.

They also need to replace the toilet paper roll.

And replace those ugly, dusty couches.

Fresh paint will help here.

New windows and fresh paint here too.
