Vague Real Estate Photos

October 6th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Sometimes you can’t get a clear idea about the look of a house.  Especially if the photos are not up to par, as promoted for this Mesa, Arizona home.

Sideways bathroom.

Upside down hallway.  Well, it helps buyers see the ceiling’s water stain more clearly.

We can’t see what the shower looks like.

We can’t see what the bathroom looks like either.  No other photos available of the bathroom.

Use your imagination for this bedroom.

The photographer shifted to the right, but we still can’t see the bedroom.

The only photo of the kitchen and we can’t see it.  Is your curiosity piqued enough to see this house?

A knotted curtain!  Ugh.

It looks like a dog wearing a sweater standing on its hind legs.

Bacteria Factory

October 3rd, 2014 · 5 Comments

These sellers were super dirty.  Disgusting floor of a bedroom.  You can see the outline of a dresser and a bed.  Did they ever wash their feet or wipe their shoes?  Is that dog feces?

Is doesn’t look any better from a distance.

Another filthy bedroom.

And a third dirty bedroom.  How many years (decades?) does it take to reach that level?

No surprise that the bathroom is dirty too.

The kitchen’s not so bad.  Although the ceiling and refrigerator door handles could use some cleaning.

That’s really old carpet in the living room.  So if it doesn’t have a pathway of filth, why are the bedrooms so nasty?

The house has roof leak issues too.

This is the back of the house.

There’s a detached workshop too.

The roof of the workshop has separated from the walls.

Interesting Baby Names

October 2nd, 2014 · 7 Comments

Cutesy letters for baby names on bedroom walls continue to show up.  But the names become more, um, different.

Pasy?

It Has a Lot Going For It

September 29th, 2014 · No Comments

Unfortunately, the lot is what’s worthwhile.

The coved ceiling is a plus.  Too bad the owners neglected this home.

How old is that wall heater?

Some caulk to fill in the cracks and fresh paint will do wonders.

Bonus room!

So much potential.

It has a water softener!  But it also has an old electric service panel, an old evaporative cooler, old wood shingles, and a cracked foundation.

Under the Grapevine

September 24th, 2014 · 2 Comments

They solved the problem of not enough closet space.  Just add lattice to the wall and now you can hang hangers from it.  The gargoyle nods his head in approval.

Who Needs Closets?

September 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

Maybe these Blythe, California sellers have it right.  Why hide your clothes in a dark closet with a door?  You can’t see your clothes.

Much easier to see what you have this way.
