Beautiful House - Ugly Tree

July 27th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Thank you, Michael, for sending us these photos of a remodeled San Diego, California house.  The house is beautiful, but the gnarly, old tree out front is creepy and ugly.

The tree has been trimmed up too high, so now it’s all gangly branches and no leaves.  It distracts from the house.

You can see the ugly branches from the living room window.

Beautiful new kitchen.  Looks clean, fresh, and bright.  White cabinets, especially Shaker style as seen here, with engineered quartz counters are very popular right now in kitchen redesign.  Note how the glass backsplash is only one color.

Construction Photos

December 12th, 2013 · 6 Comments

We’ve got a real treat for you today.  It’s not often we see vintage photos of homes along with the current photos, especially with construction workers.  The sellers of this 1941 Gilbert, Arizona home were kind enough to include construction photos.  They bought it in 1965 and recently sold it 48 years later.

Their house is on the left, as seen in February 1966.

They expanded the front room in 1966.  You can see the worker on the right.

It’s no wonder the house had multiple offers.  It isn’t a fancy house and certainly not modern, but when you see the attention paid to construction and knowing it was owned for 48 years, it becomes more valuable.

Veterans Day Is Today - Please Thank a Veteran

Today is Veterans Day.  Please thank a Veteran for serving his/her country.

These three sellers lost a loved one who served.  They all get a pass from our snarky comments.  Bless you.

The Waiting Room

The living room sure looks like a waiting room.  But what business are they running that would have 4 clients waiting at one time?

Guilty of Pandering

November 1st, 2013 · 2 Comments

The sellers’ kid wrote this note:  Some people please buy our house.
This photo was included in the home’s listing.
Could be a cute gimmick that pulls on buyers’ heartstrings.  Or to a cynic, using your kid.  What kid really wants to move?
