Please Define What “Newer” Means

May 29th, 2017 · 3 Comments

This photo’s caption reads, “Newer built-in micro(wave) and plenty of counter space.” The house was built in 1989 and that sure looks like the original microwave & oven. So….28 years old = newer?

Short On Staging

May 17th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Short sale home in Chandler, Arizona. A little de-cluttering would be nice.

170517a

More clutter here, so less clutter when selling please.

170517b

The view to the family room shows a lot of family photos on the wall.

170517c

Cluttered bathroom.

170517d

A vacuum near a bathtub is always handy.

170517e

Poor photography.

170517f

The plane crashed landed.

170517g

Let’s put the ladder away too.

170517h

How about fixing the patio ceiling?

170517i

And fix it here too.

170517j

And here.

Houston Honey

May 14th, 2017 · 3 Comments

The water in the dishwasher is as golden brown as honey. Sweet.

170514houstontx1

Perhaps they could use the bleach to clean the dishwasher.

170514houstontx2

Is that a lawn mower or a generator? Either one, please don’t run them inside the house.

170514houstontx3

The toilet seat’s too long for the bowl. Hope they don’t overshoot.

170514houstontx4

The front of the house looks nice.

170514houstontx5

Until you realize they used pallets as pavers. Very dangerous to walk on. Hope you don’t wear high heels or have weak ankles.

Miserable looking dog in a kitchen.

170425a

He does not look happy.

170425b

Maybe he’s mad that his owners are selling the house?

170425c

He’s literally being pug-nacious.

Pretty In Pink Ovens

April 24th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Pink was a popular color in kitchens in the 1950s and early 1960s. Let’s take a look at four pink ovens that are still in use today after five decades.

Fresh like a daisy.
