This is a new one:  a ceiling fan in the shower!  Let’s hope that fan is water resistant and shock-proof.  Scary.  And be careful raising your arms to shampoo your hair!

Filthy toilet.  Click to expand if you dare.  Just a suggestion: close the lid before taking the photo.  This was an actual photo published on the Internet to promote the sale of the house.

Please be careful when taking real estate photos.  Personal information might be included in the photo.  Here’s an Eloy, Arizona seller with someone’s name, their cell phone #, and their home # in full display.  There’s also a phone number for horse rescue.  Anyway, unless you want to receive unsolicited phone calls, hide your personal information.

Home Tour Highlights

April 17th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I went on a Realtor home tour yesterday and saw very nice homes.  There is always a seller or two that doesn’t get the memo on home staging or home presentation.  Here are two examples:

Collections on display.  You can’t tear your eyes away from all that stuff.  Many of the home’s rooms were like this.  Hard to remember the house and its positive features in this condition.  I wonder if instead of the seller doing an inevitable price reduction (let’s say $5,000), that they move out instead and spend the $5,000 on rent and storage.

Personal items.  I did a double take at this home’s bathroom.  No one wants to see a feminine hygiene product wrapper!
