Here’s how folks are decorating their windows across America. Let’s start in Houston, Texas. Here we see floral pattern drapery with timeless ruffled edging.
Also popular in Houston is the layered look for window curtains. Only 2 fabrics? Why not go for three?
Pastels are making a comeback in Wichita Falls, Texas. If only they had knotted the curtains!!!
Over in North Judson, Indiana, they prefer more formal window treatments.
Elegance perfected in North Judson.
True fact: It’s written in the North Judson city charter and housing deeds that scalloped curtains are required.

Wet bars used to be all the rage in the 1970s and 1980s.
They haven’t been included in new homes for over 20 years.
Here’s a NASCAR-themed wet bar.

One of our readers wants us to solve a mystery: where is the missing fireplace?
Police all around Squaw Valley, California are searching for the fireplace. The sellers are distraught.
The house has another fireplace as a back-up, thank goodness.
And now the liquor bottles are missing!!

Joe built this wet bar in the 1980s.
And hasn’t updated it since.

They built a cantina in their back yard! Complete with fireplace, bar, TV, and boom box!

Watch out for splinters! Yee haw!

Short sales accounted for only 3.5% of all sold listings in the Phoenix metro area in June 2014, the lowest since June 2008. Thank goodness. They are typically neglected homes. Here’s a recent example. And this wasn’t someone who bought at the height of the market. This home was purchased for $92,000 in 2001 with no refinancing. It sold for less due to the condition.
Cracked toilet tank. How does that happen? Mildew on the shower grout.
More problems in the bathtub.
The baby sticks those yucky peas and carrots in the hole in the wall.
The carpet is shot.
There are a variety of items on display out front. The wheelbarrow distracts you from the broken window.
The previous photo was better than this one. And that’s no bull.
The swimming pool adds extra value to the property.
Can’t wait for the new owner to transform this property.
The roof on the addition is buckling.
Another broken window.
The security door is not attached.

Thank you, Jon & Amber, for sending these photos of a Florissant, Missouri home. The seller purchased it for $60,000, remodeled it as you will see, and listed it for sale at $125,000. It is now priced at $110,000 and hasn’t sold. Hmmm. Wonder why it hasn’t sold. Could it be the carpet???
The seller is a tiger in bed.
In true Vegas style, the master bedroom has a hot tub!
Water cascades down the stone wall into the hot tub. Very romantic. And damp.
The living room is the first thing buyers will see.
And then you see a tribal mask with googly eyes.
Even the chairs have crazy color patterns.
The sellers reduced their asking price by $15,000. Here’s a thought: they could have spent $5,000 installing new carpeting, kept their original asking price, and been ahead $10,000.
There’s carpet on the walls of the wet bar!
Who wants carpeting in a kitchen? At least the crazy colors will help hide stains.
They remodeled the bathroom with a black toilet and black pedestal sink. And carpet in the bathroom? Yuk.
