Why didn’t they hoard/store stuff on top of the kitchen cabinets?

They’re playing strip poker.  He lost the first hand.  Off went his shoes.  You don’t want to see the photos 30 minutes later.  He’s a terrible poker player  ;-)

Avoid Disappointment

December 19th, 2013 · 1 Comment

The back patio looks a little dusty and cluttered.  Plus stacks of bricks.  Let’s ask the seller what her plans are.

It says, “avoid disappointment” in the bedroom.  There’s also baseball caps and knives.

At least the bed is made.  Those knives are creepy.

Vacant Or Furnished? The Big Real Estate Question

December 4th, 2013 · 4 Comments

This question comes up a lot:  Should I sell my house with furniture or empty?  It depends on the furniture and depends on the space.  Some homes have great rooms or open concept spaces that confuse buyers when unfurnished.  Others might look better without furnishings.   Here’s a good example.

Furnished Family Room

Short Cited

Short sale home just a bit short of proper home staging.

What would you change here?

And what about here?

cluttered disorganized family room poor bad home staging Phoenix Arizona house short sale real estate photo

And in the kitchen?

cluttered disorganized kitchen poor bad home staging Phoenix Arizona house short sale real estate photo

Seems like a nice looking kitchen under all that clutter.

Imagine this kitchen empty.

Visually distracting dining room.

Since it’s a short sale, they don’t care about net profit.

Anything needed to be done to this bedroom before selling?

How about this bedroom?

Or this one?  Oh, look, the seller is at his computer, waiting for comments and suggestions at UglyHousePhotos.com.
