Today is time to tidy up this house.
Time to put the clothes away.
At least the lid is down.
Please clean the grout.
In the second bathroom, the newer vanity is smaller than the original vanity. Mind the gap.
Getting an early start on Christmas.
Staging assistance needed here.
At least there’s only one pan hanging from the pot rack.

Here we have a messy house. Either two things happened: the seller is a messy person and doesn’t care how the house looks when selling or the renters moved out with their stuff left behind and the seller didn’t bother to clear it out before selling.
Now this mess becomes the buyer’s problem.
Hold on, maybe this was an estate sale. The owner died or went to a nursing home? Then it becomes the family’s burden to remove the stuff before selling.
The buyer discounts her/his offer to reflect the cost of trash removal.
The seller or seller’s family then gets less money on the sale.
Imagine how big this room would look once empty.
Room used as a pantry.
More fun for the buyer.

A smorgasbord of visual treats for you. So much to take in.
Knotted curtains, of course!
Those are some serious knots!
What happened to the kitchen cabinets?
The kitchen curtains weren’t knotted?
Explain why the belt is hanging there in the kitchen. Is it to scare the kids into behaving?

This Avondale, Arizona home includes a relaxing shaded swimming pool!
You’re protected from the hot Arizona sun.
It also includes a mural of a mountain stream.
Watch your step.
Painstaking attention to detail with the shower tile.
Easy access to the electric sub panel. Would make a great kid’s room.
A second bathroom is always welcomed.

Before Family Room. An investor bought this Glendale, Arizona home for $131,000.
After Family Room. The remodeled home then sold for $180,000.
Before Dining Room.
After Dining Room.
After Bedroom. Carpet and paint give you the best return on renovation, especially an emotional reaction from buyers. From “Oh, no” to “Oh, yes.”
After Kitchen. They kept the cabinets.
Before Front of House.
After Front of House.

Rumor has it that a new season of Hoarders TV show will begin May 28th on Lifetime! Keep an eye out for any announcements.
Meanwhile, this Tempe, Arizona home is on its way to qualifying someday for Hoarders. The walls are covered. Next is the floor.
It’s a banner crop! Peterbilt, Zildjian, and Pearl.
The kiddies have free access to the liquor!!
He is a fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
It’s no surprise the kid’s room is filled with stuff.
What 5-year-old needs a TV that big or at all in his bedroom?
The tidiest room of the house. Notice how the bedroom window goes to the family room from the earlier photos.
Hat collection. Because everyone needs 30 hats.
Once the kids are liquored up, they can grab a knife!
Quick! Fill that empty space on the wall.
Too bad there’s so many visual distractions in this home. The kitchen, the floors, and the rooms like very nice.

Please visit this Mesa, Arizona home. The sellers have prepared lunch for you!
It’s more fun to lounge on a bed mattress while watching TV.
They painted the toilet orange. Isn’t that a neat idea?
The junk is so evenly distributed, you’d think it was placed carefully.
There is a mirror on the ceiling.
Is that a chore list? 1. Replace wood blinds 2. Install ceiling fan 3. Clean up room
The palm tree trunk doesn’t line up.
That’s a wig on the vanity!
Such a shame they neglected this house. Swimming pool and backing to a greenbelt. A home flipper will want this house.

It is highly recommended that you straighten up your house before selling. And remove visual distractions, like Spider-Man blankets.
Repeat…no visual distractions, like Arizona Cardinals football blankets. Or a bra on the bed. Or wolf bedspreads.
Please turn off the TV, clean the ceiling fan blades, and unknot the curtains. Yes, we see you, Mr. Socks, sitting on the bed.
Please remove kisses and frosting on the windows. And maybe remove the mirrors from around the bathtub.
Please remove the vacuum, the shelves (with full encyclopedia set) blocking the window, the blanket blocking the other window. And the bicycle, the wind chime, and the dream catchers.
Please turn off the TV.
Please remove the dogs.
Please remove the hangers and the flyswatter. And unknot the curtains.
Just one lifetime won’t be enough time for us.
