Like a Dream

Thank you, Rodney, for finding this rental on Craigslist.  It is an explosion of angels & whatnot.

If only they had evened up the window sheers.

It doesn’t say if the house comes furnished.  Or dusted.

It does say that prospective renters will be required to have a “baground” check.

And also that the neighborhood’s “environment is upscalled.”  Rodney, I know you want to live here, so I’ll gladly write you a reference letter.

Before & After – Empty vs. Furnished

January 31st, 2015 · 10 Comments

One of the most common questions when sellers consider selling their homes is, “Will my house look better furnished or empty?”  The answer is usually “it depends.”  As we’ve seen many times on this blog, furniture & furnishings can make or break a home’s appeal.  Today we have a great example to compare empty versus furnished.  However, the Before photo is probably the furnished one; the After photo when empty.

Short & Not Sweet

January 27th, 2015 · 4 Comments

Short sale in Gilbert, Arizona.  Notice how the carpet was originally pink in color (where the bed used to be).  And notice the carpet torn up.  And the window “drapes.”
