Go ahead, Junior. Sleep up in the loft. Don’t worry. The ropes will hold you up if the boards break. They’ll also keep you from falling out. [Crown King, Arizona]

These Mesa, Arizona sellers wallpapered their entire home in either faux stone or faux wood. The results are, well, see for yourself.
Faux stone wall wallpaper in the master bedroom.
Were they stoned?
Log cabin effect in another bedroom.
Complete with faux river rock fireplace wall. And photographer’s reflection.
We asked the baby to move out of the photo, but just like the wallpaper, he’s stonewalling.
Over to the left, there’s more stone wallpaper.
The pot rack is now a utensil rack.
And yes, more faux stone wallpaper in the kitchen. Will this much wallpaper leave buyers feeling stone cold?

This is really bad. I mean, c’mon now. Two things wrong with this Mesa, Arizona patio roof:
1. They used the wrong roofing material, roof shingles, when they should have used rolled SIS roofing material. The slope of the patio roof is too low for regular shingles.
2. They didn’t trim the sides.
The only thing they cut were corners. What other home maintenance items did they skimp on?

They thought affixing stones to the wall would look cool. And thought selling the house like this was cool too.
This stone wall is finished. Should we be grateful?
How many hours were spent gluing each pebble?!

Those dreaded knotted curtains are back. And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.
Here they are from a different angle.
Knotted curtains are like a virus. They spread to other windows in a house. Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.
We don’t luv knotted curtains.
People are now knotting bed sheets used as curtains.
Either knot them both or none. We vote for none.
How is a buyer supposed to exit that door with a giant knot hanging there?
Please make this trend go away.
It’s knot a good look.

What do you think of this remodeled shower? They spent a lot of time installing the stone wall. Must be tons of fun to clean around the stones & grout: soap scum, mildew, hard water deposits, etc. You can already see the discoloration.

Real estate photography tip: Be careful with shadows.
If you see your shadow in a photo, either move to a different spot or take the photo at a different time of day.
The time of day makes a difference. The shadow dominates the photo.
Another example of too much shadow and too little house.
Real estate broker signs are not allowed in MLS photos, so this photographer photoshopped over the sign with grass! Wouldn’t it have been better to take the photo from a different angle? And different time of day?

Hmm. What to do with broken pieces of floor tile? Hmm. I know! I’ll make a wall mosaic in the bathroom!

They created a beach cove in their family room. How nice.
They built a ”reef” around the fireplace.
You can hear the ocean waves lapping the shore.

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!
