Cabin Joy

May 24th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Summer is almost here. Phoenicians will be dreaming of cooler temperatures in the mountains of Arizona. Perhaps Crown King, Arizona? Here’s a cabin with a stove to keep you warm.

May I have some hot cocoa please?

Here’s another view of that room.

Paint Fail

May 23rd, 2017 · 2 Comments

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sponge paint or faux paint. That ugly trend had disappeared in Phoenix until now.

Did they use a baby diaper to sponge the wall?

And did these sellers use a baby diaper to smear against their walls?

Bite Me

Why couldn’t the photographer or seller remove the Bite Me pillow for the photo? Do you like the wallpaper?

Three Messy Living Rooms

May 20th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Messy living room. Good grief.

170520a

Help me understand. These homes are for sale. Are the sellers that clueless?

170520b

From a house in Florence, Arizona. The state prison in Florence is cleaner than this house.

Poor little bird.

Birds of a feather did not flock together. These cages are in another room.

Short On Staging

May 17th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Short sale home in Chandler, Arizona. A little de-cluttering would be nice.

170517a

More clutter here, so less clutter when selling please.

170517b

The view to the family room shows a lot of family photos on the wall.

170517c

Cluttered bathroom.

170517d

A vacuum near a bathtub is always handy.

170517e

Poor photography.

170517f

The plane crashed landed.

170517g

Let’s put the ladder away too.

170517h

How about fixing the patio ceiling?

170517i

And fix it here too.

170517j

And here.

Let’s tidy up the back yard too.
