Not Short On Belongings

August 14th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona, but long on the list of personal belongings on display.

Are you distracted enough by all the stuff to ignore the two missing tiles?

The closets are full.

The sellers ignored the ceiling.

Another view of the room.

And another view. Shoe‘dn’t the footwear be stored in a closet?

Stuffed full.

More ceiling damage.

He could not.

Kitchen islands are great for adding extra storage space.

Fine dining.

Too many cobwebs on the chandelier.

Missed opportunity to highlight the big picture window and vaulted ceiling.

One light bulb does not match the others.

What happened to the tiles by the drain?

Three ovens and two microwave ovens in one kitchen. Vintage ovens, no less, in a 1967 Phoenix home.

Delaware Delight

July 30th, 2017 · 3 Comments

This Harrington, Delaware home left an impression on our reader Sarah. Was it the right impression?

170730harringtonde01

Careful going up those stairs!

170730harringtonde02

Bright paint color or wallpaper border won’t make up for the other flaws.

170730harringtonde03

Quality ventilation system.

170730harringtonde04

Double wallpaper borders and sponge paint. Are you green with envy?

170730harringtonde05

Getting any inspirations for your own house?

170730harringtonde06

Watch your step.

170730harringtonde07

Was the plumbing installed by a licensed contractor?

170730harringtonde08

Orange you going to write an offer to buy this house?

170730harringtonde09

Buyers are deciding about the de-siding.

Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 9 Comments

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.

170723richmondtx01

Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.

170723richmondtx02

Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.

170723richmondtx03

We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.

170723richmondtx04

Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.

170723richmondtx05

Sorry again for the nudity.

170723richmondtx06

Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.

170723richmondtx07

Here’s another view of this room.

170723richmondtx14

All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.

170723richmondtx08

The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.

170723richmondtx09

Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.

170723richmondtx10

Wonderful life. Fun.

170723richmondtx11

He’s counting all of the overhead lights.

170723richmondtx12

It’s Christmas year ’round.

170723richmondtx13

The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.

170723richmondtx15

Shoes are lined up on the stairs.

170723richmondtx16

Beware of pickpockets and loose women.

170723richmondtx17

Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.

170723richmondtx18

He’s waiting to join you in the shower.

170723richmondtx19

The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

High quality carpet. The kind that lasts for decades.

Take your shoes and socks off and feel how soft the carpet is.

170717b

Lie down and take a nap.

170717c

Vintage 1940s or 1950s kitchen.
