Cat Litter Box

June 24th, 2014 · 9 Comments

Cat litter box.  With a turd.  In the middle of the master bedroom.  Of a $1 million home.  I was shocked to see this while on a Realtor home tour.  The seller was home.  She didn’t think to remove it before agents showed up??!?!  Gross!

Here’s how a bedroom looked in 2007.  He tried to sell it for $179,000 back then, but had no buyers.

And how that bedroom looked in 2014.  The bedroom is now a workshop.

I see cleaning supplies, but the kitchen sink is dirty.

The back yard.

The back yard offers lots of room for extra storage.

A photo of dead tree branches is a great touch.  By the way, this house sold for $23,000 in 2014, thanks to the condition of the house.

Yesterday Was Flag Day

June 15th, 2014 · 3 Comments

June 14th is Flag Day.  A day to proudly display the American flag.  Here are some home sellers with their own versions of displaying the American flag.

Wrong!  The flag was hung backwards.  The blue field is supposed to be at the upper left.  [Phoenix]

Wrong!  The flag is backwards in this Tempe, Arizona home.

The blue field is in the upper left, so bonus points for that.  But using the American flag as a window curtain is not cool.  [Jonesboro, Arkansas]

These Wickenburg, Arizona sellers used the flag as a curtain, but at least it wasn’t a real flag.

It’s not backwards or over a window.  Thank you.  [Superior, Wisconsin]

What a difference a room makes.  The living room (with American flag) is neat and tidy in a Marshfield, Missouri home.

But when you get to the dining room, bam!  Clutter & family photos.  And an American flag.

Old Glory.  Long may it wave.  [Goodyear, Arizona]

Hey, wait.  That’s not an American flag.  Oops.  (It’s a flag from Liberia)
