Bathroom Painting Gone Wrong

July 12th, 2011 · 6 Comments

It might be a seaside mural, but the yellow, pink, and blue trees are throwing me off.  From the overly creative mind of a Chandler, Arizona seller.

Homeless Shelter Bathroom

July 12th, 2011 · 7 Comments

It’s a shed in someone’s back yard.  But looks like a homeless person decided to use it as a bathroom.  The seller couldn’t clean it up????  Good grief.  Hold your nose and clean it up!  Yes, this is an actual photo presented to the public.  What do you think when seeing this?

Tired Home Decorating

July 11th, 2011 · 3 Comments

It takes all kinds.  What were they thinking when they put two tires on the wall?!  Definitely the road less traveled by other home decorators.  Is this a new tread, er, trend?  We’d rubber, er, rather they remove the tires when selling.  Otherwise, buyers might race out of the home.

Mold & Mildew In a Closet

Hold your breath.

Owned by the bank, but they won’t fix the problem.  They’re selling it “as is,” of course.  But they risk harming the health of workers, agents, and buyers (with kids) who visit the house.

Casual Home Staging

July 11th, 2011 · 5 Comments

There are a variety of decorating styles in this Glendale, Arizona home.

Hang ‘Em High:  After sponge painting the walls gray, the seller got out a tall ladder and went to town.

Ran Out of Nails:  After hanging everything in sight in the living room, she had no nails left for the bedroom.  For that, we’re thankful.

More Shelves Please:  What do you get someone who has everything?  Shelves!  There might be room for another one or two.

The Neglected Sofa:  Closets are for hiding stuff, not sofas.
