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.

170327c

Visual distractions.

170327d

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

170327e

Too much furniture for a small space.

170327f

Giant bed.

170327g

Too much going on.

170327h

Themed bathroom. Looks very small.

170327i

Again, too much furniture for a small space.

Greenhouse Effect

March 7th, 2017 · 6 Comments

Specially designed bathroom with a domed window. They added bamboo blinds for privacy.

170307a

This design is impractical in Phoenix. The sun is nearly straight overhead in summer. And it’s a hot sun. That bathroom would be like a sauna. Bathroom probably was an addition without a building permit.

170307b

As home owners and flippers try to modernize their homes in Phoenix, many are choosing frosted glass garage doors. Looks nice and modern but totally impractical in Phoenix. This is a photo of a house I sold last year. The garage faced south. The inside of the garage was boiling hot.

Howl You Rate This House?

March 6th, 2017 · No Comments

There’s a wolf at your door. Watch out!

170306a

When you step out of the wolf bedroom, you might trip over the extension cord. The staging in this house is bananas.

170306b

Minimalistic kitchen with no upper cabinets or counter space or dishwasher.

170306c

Looks like they replaced the original counter and sink since the “new” one doesn’t line up properly. With all those hair care products and toiletries, you’d think the mirror would not be on the right of the vanity and that there would be better lighting.

170306d

Another bedroom.

170306e

And one more.

Grecian Nightclub?

February 26th, 2017 · No Comments

Our reader Eileen sent us these photos of a home in Greece, New York. For sale $200,000 below comparable properties in the area because…its owner reportedly owned about 50 properties in a money-laundering scheme for drug sales. $10 million in drug sales from 2013-2014 were recorded in a ledger found at this particular property; 1 kilogram of cocaine = $36,000. High finance, for sure! Here’s a link to a new article.

The house looks like a nightclub with several dance floors.

Rapper’s Delight: Hip hop and go-go dancers in this room, complete with photo mural of New York City.

Shake Your Groove Thing: disco, disco!
