The three wise men got really lost.  They didn’t stop to ask for directions.  They arrived in Phoenix in May when this home was listed.

Late For Christmas Or Early For Christmas?

December 23rd, 2011 · 5 Comments

Every year, the same questions:  When should I put up my Christmas decorations and when should I take them down?

These Phoenix sellers kept their Christmas decorations up all during the year, up until it sold on Halloween.

These Mesa, Arizona sellers untrimmed the tree on December 31st, 2010 when they listed the house.  They kept the tree inside until the house sold eleven months later in November.

This Tempe home was listed in January 2011; they left up the tree until it sold in November (well, at least the photo remained unchanged for ten months).

These Jefferson City, Missouri folk put their Christmas decorations up in November, before Thanksgiving.

What have we learned?  Please don’t include holiday decorations in your real estate photos.  If you absolutely must decorate the house when selling, please replace the holiday photos when the house is back to normal.

The Kids Control This House

December 22nd, 2011 · 8 Comments

These sellers let their kids take over the house.  Full reign (of terror).  Writing on the walls was fully accepted and condoned.  Now the new buyer has to deal with it.

This photo’s caption reads, “More walls.”  And less parenting.

Oh, look.  More scribbles (juvenile graffiti) in the living room.

Horse Tack Equipment

December 22nd, 2011 · 2 Comments

We were teasing yesterday about the sellers who displayed horse tack equipment next to their bed.  We’re hoping it was on display only.  Well, we found more horse tack equipment in a Mesa, Arizona home.  Complete with rifle and gun holsters.  It’s the Wild West!
