July 29th, 2016 · No Comments

This home was sold as a short sale.  Short on being tidy.

Clutter free kitchen?  No dice.

Short on light.

More clutter and what-not in this room.

Wait.  If that’s the shower, why is the toilet paper holder in the shower area?  Maybe this is an old house that only has a bathtub and no shower?

Curtain Time

Creative shower curtains make a statement in any bathroom.

Hungry like the wolf?

Horsing around.  Show this to your neigh-bors.

The dying tree.

These curtains soak up all of the shower water.  Very practical.

Keeping the shower curtain closed for the real estate photo makes the bathroom look smaller.  And a loud pattern then dominates the room.

July 17th, 2016 · 5 Comments

Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.

Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.

“A scrub is a guy who thinks he’s fly.”  It’s also medical clothing that thinks it’s a curtain.

The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 2 Comments

This Phoenix fixer could be worth $500,000 in San Diego.  Notice the roof and wrong type of paint.

Remember the window with the sideways board; I’ll refer to it later.

Artificial grass turf carpeting everywhere!  No need to waste water on real grass.

Looks just like a football field.  Each line of weeds is 10 yards?

Uh oh.  The wall fell over.

This San Diego, California home is only 978 square feet.  It sold recently for $655,000!  In this condition.  Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos.

What do we know about suggesting home staging and de-cluttering?  The house still sold despite this.

Imagine how much the house will sell for once renovated.  Would it get $1,000 per square foot?

We still recommend clearing off the clutter before selling.

Looks like it might have a basement apartment.  Must be a real treat when it rains.
