After Kitchen.  Purchased by a buyer for $179,000.

Before Master Bedroom.

After Master Bedroom.  Nothing new was done here, but notice the change with everything cleared out, with a better photo angle, and with a better camera.

Before Master Bathroom.  It was already remodeled.

After Master Bathroom.  Again, nothing new was done here.  But different angle + different camera = better photo.

Before 2nd Bathroom.

After 2nd Bathroom.  They changed the toilet seat and removed the cabinet.

Before Front of House.  With dirty driveway.

After Front of House.  New garage doors.  But the photo looks more fresh.

Before Front of House.  Looks cluttered.

After Front of House.  Better lighting.  Better angle.

Before Dining Area.  For that all important second refrigerator.

After Living Room.  The rest of these photos don’t match up, but you get the idea.

Before Family Room.  With foil in the window.  The office chairs match the chairs from the Before Master Bedroom photo.  The previous owners used this room as a family room.  The investors turned it back into a master suite.

Before Bedroom.

The kitchen with a mattress nearby.

Blond Ambition

Thank you, Michael, for sending these photos.

She’s showing off her naturally blond hair.  And her San Diego, California back yard.

She’s trying to get out of the picture, but too late.

In this photo, it looks like her pants are down after coming out of the bathroom.  But it’s actually her hand.  Still, was it necessary for her to be in the real estate photo?

The photographer asked the man to leave the room for the picture, but he was just too slow.  Don’t forget your baseball cap!

And here’s a third person trying to escape from the clutter.

Let’s give them some credit.  The kitchen sink and counter look spotless.

The living room.  Sigh.  Oh, wait.  Is that yet another person standing on the right edge of the photo?  I see a hand and sunglasses.

Shocker.  There’s no one in this bedroom.

Have a Beary Nice Valentine’s Day

February 14th, 2014 · 1 Comment

The only thing in this room that should be stuffed full is the Valentine’s teddy bear.  The rest of the clutter can go.

Gaudy Vegas Carpeting In Missouri

February 13th, 2014 · 9 Comments

Thank you, Jon & Amber, for sending these photos of a Florissant, Missouri home.  The seller purchased it for $60,000, remodeled it as you will see, and listed it for sale at $125,000.  It is now priced at $110,000 and hasn’t sold.  Hmmm.  Wonder why it hasn’t sold.  Could it be the carpet???

The seller is a tiger in bed.

In true Vegas style, the master bedroom has a hot tub!

Water cascades down the stone wall into the hot tub.  Very romantic.  And damp.

The living room is the first thing buyers will see.

And then you see a tribal mask with googly eyes.

Even the chairs have crazy color patterns.

The sellers reduced their asking price by $15,000.  Here’s a thought:  they could have spent $5,000 installing new carpeting, kept their original asking price, and been ahead $10,000.

There’s carpet on the walls of the wet bar!

Who wants carpeting in a kitchen?  At least the crazy colors will help hide stains.

They remodeled the bathroom with a black toilet and black pedestal sink.  And carpet in the bathroom?  Yuk.

Stuffed & Stuffed

February 12th, 2014 · 12 Comments

Thank you, Rachel, for finding these photos.  I think we’re just as shocked as you are.

Stuffed animals on display.  Because that’s how you sell a house.  Aim for a specific type of buyer.  Alienate the others.

Never fear.  There’s more taxidermy!

The rest of the house is filled with dusty collectibles.

There’s a dog on the black chair.  Wanna bet he ends up stuffed and mounted some day?

Artwork with nudity.  Who wants to see that when eating?  Not appropriate when selling.

And another view of the nudity.  It’s like a museum.

Too bad the stainless steel appliances are ignored by visual distractions.

And more stuff.
