Imagine this space without the seller’s belongings. Wow.

Fresh like a daisy.

Check out the oven. Vintage 1956.

Built-In Media Niches

April 18th, 2017 · 1 Comment

It was popular in the 1990s and early 2000s to create massive built-in entertainment centers or media niches. Back in the day when TVs were narrower and also when big TVs were very deep. But nowadays, most of these media niches are functionally obsolete. Today’s TVs are wider and shallow.

This TV actually fits in the niche. But the surrounding niches only encourage home owners to become collectors. Future hoarders?

170418b

Sometimes they are used only to display items.

170418c

They can also be demoted to secondary status. The knotted curtain gets full priority in this room.

170418d

Or completely ignored. They’re also great dust collectors.

Untidy Bedrooms

March 30th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Hint, hint. It’s better to clear off and make the bed before taking real estate photos.

170330a

These sellers converted a bedroom into storage and a home gym. Looks like they like to do planks.

170330b

Too much going on in this real estate photo. Looks like a robot on the right side.

Fan-tastic Home

March 21st, 2017 · 5 Comments

Fans are prominent features in this home.

170321a

Having a fan in a real estate photo tells buyers that the house does not cool off properly.

170321b

Another fan. Window air conditioners also tell buyers that the house is too hot. Or does not have central air conditioning.

170321c

Foil! And hats!

170321d

Another fan and another window air conditioner plus foil.

170321e

Same room, same fan, more clutter.

170321f

Another window air conditioner but no foil or fan?

170321h

Yep. This house has no central air conditioning.
