Two Plungers

September 14th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Two plungers in one bathroom and one of them is a super plunger for really big jobs.  Hmmm.  And a giant trash bag for all the bathroom garbage that will take weeks and months to fill or they produce a lot of trash in the bathroom.   Or they don’t flush non-human materials.  [Fort Morgan, Colorado]

Pessimist?

34 rolls of toilet paper in the bath, 34 rolls of paper.  Take one down, flush it around, 33 rolls of TP.  Poor sap.  He’s terrified he’ll run out of toilet paper!

Cold Feet

John’s feet get so hot that he has to stick his feet out the window when he sleeps.  His cat doesn’t seem to mind.  The sheer curtains and the hats on the wall add some flair to the room.

Look What You Got!

September 3rd, 2014 · 5 Comments

The box reads, “Look what you got!”  We’re definitely seeing what these sellers “got.”  And it’s a lot of stuff.  Is that a Cabbage Patch doll?

The dining room features dog food bags, old carpet, and dusty ceiling fan blades.

The bathroom floor is uplifting.

Gently used over the decades.

Another cluttered bedroom.  The bag reads, “Last Chance,” as in last chance to impress buyers.

It’s not a bedroom closet.  It’s the bathroom shower with clothes on hangers on hangers.

8 Real Estate Photography Tips

August 25th, 2014 · 4 Comments

1.  You might be upside down with your home’s value, but don’t prove it with the photo!

2.  The only lines you should see are lines of people to visit your house.

3.  Close-up photos never tell the true story.

4.  Your reflection in the bathroom mirrors reflects your photography skills.

The four faces of Eve?  She’s reflected four times in this photo.  At least we know she’s not a vampire.

5. Fish eye photos creep out buyers.  Is that mold on the walls or wallpaper?

6. Don’t take a photo from behind glass.

7.  Take photos to show off the features of the house or of a room, not of personal items.  It’s doubtful those towels are worth more than $3.

8.  Watch out for shadows!
