Emergency Kits

September 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

Entry without carpet on the left. Kitchen in the back left. Dining in the back right. Living room with stained carpet to the right.

Dining room with extra carpet. And emergency kits.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Hallway, no carpet.

Opposite view, hallway, no carpet.

Bathroom.

Guest bathroom. And there’s the guest!

Bedroom.

Another view of the bedroom. Did we have to see the bras?

Back yard. With outdoor carpeting.

Brick House (On the Inside)

September 17th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Sarah found this Georgetown, Delaware home with a lot of brick on the inside.

“All in all it’s just another (1000) brick(s) in the wall.”

The brick virus spread to the kitchen.

They even bricked the fish tank stand.

Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Hinges & Handles

September 10th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Overkill on the kitchen cabinet hinges and handles. Thank you to our reader Sarah for sending photos of this Laurel, Delaware home.

They need to replace the paper towel roll.

They also need to replace the toilet paper roll.

And replace those ugly, dusty couches.

Fresh paint will help here.

New windows and fresh paint here too.

Tornado In Kingman?

September 8th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Did a tornado or hurricane hit this Kingman, Arizona house? Good grief.

What happened?

Really?

Disaster scene.

???

This is a different fireplace than the one in the above photo.

What happened up there?

Messy bedroom with a hole in the ceiling.

Another hole in the ceiling.

And now an even bigger hole!

Explain that! The Kool-Aid guy visited?

Tanks, but no tanks. We’ll pass.

Dusty Piano

Let’s Ensure the cat litter box is always clean for visiting buyers.

Furniture included with full price offer.

Vintage kitchen.

What were mattress companies thinking back in the day with that horrible urine-yellow color? Or maybe they were actually very clever!

Mirror, mirror, on the floor. Who’s the fairest house of all?

Wall to ceiling to wall wood paneling.

Some bleach and this bathroom could be cute.

Cobwebs & More

August 31st, 2017 · 7 Comments

The seller was living in this house when the photos were taken, oblivious to the spider webs all around.

Watch your step in the kitchen.

More cobwebs and stuff in the living room.

She’s serving cob salad in the dining room?

More stuff.

Kitchens Gone Wrong

August 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Messy kitchen with damaged plumbing.

Half of a window is better than no window. At least the curtain wasn’t knotted.

Let’s clear off the counter tops and refrigerator.

Did a poltergeist open the doors and drawers?

Organized chaos tells buyers this kitchen is too small. Check out the ceiling stain too.

August 29th, 2017 · 1 Comment

The sellers are very proud of their swimming pool.

It has solar power too.

Feel free to use a spare bedroom as storage.

Extension cords.

Lots to see in the kitchen. Just don’t look at the ceiling.

Custom chandelier.

No need to worry about raking leaves.

Free weeds.

Fine Tuning Needed

August 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Pamala for sending us photos of a Eugene, Oregon house. Pamala is impressed with the front of the house.

She writes, “Room looks the same right side up or upside down. I love a polished ceiling, don’t you?”

She wonders if the sellers could have waited to finish their construction project before selling. “Is that a crack in the wall by the window?”

Perhaps they have cable TV in the shower?

The seller did not repair the damaged bathroom vanity or paint the bathroom.

Aah. The feel of soft grass under your bare feet.
