Pot Stickers

August 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

The seller painted marijuana leaves on the bedroom wall, hoping to sell to the highest bidder.

Pot leaves. And what happened to the ceiling?

They grew pot in the bathroom too. Plus some mold and mildew?

No Bare Walls

August 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

People complained about boring white walls. Then they complained about bland tan walls. So here are some new options.

Exposed brick!

Polka dots!

Puzzle!

Fake mold and mildew!

Brown smears in a bathroom is not a good look.

Alien Nursery?

July 28th, 2017 · 4 Comments

As seen in a house for sale in Florence, Arizona. I’m stumped. Any idea what’s going on here? Bed support? Car repair blocks? Alien baby pods? Koi pond? Modern art installation?

Holding Down the Fort

July 26th, 2017 · 4 Comments

This home in Douglas, Arizona has a basement. The owners covered the stairs with metal and used concrete blocks to hold down the metal cover.

Full House

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.

Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.

170723richmondtx02

Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.

170723richmondtx03

We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.

170723richmondtx04

Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.

170723richmondtx05

Sorry again for the nudity.

170723richmondtx06

Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.

170723richmondtx07

Here’s another view of this room.

170723richmondtx14

All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.

170723richmondtx08

The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.

170723richmondtx09

Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.

170723richmondtx10

Wonderful life. Fun.

170723richmondtx11

He’s counting all of the overhead lights.

170723richmondtx12

It’s Christmas year ’round.

170723richmondtx13

The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.

170723richmondtx15

Shoes are lined up on the stairs.

170723richmondtx16

Beware of pickpockets and loose women.

170723richmondtx17

Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.

170723richmondtx18

He’s waiting to join you in the shower.

The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

Makeshift Bidet

June 16th, 2017 · 11 Comments

I saw this toilet on a home tour yesterday and stopped in my tracks. What is that?! A kitchen sink sprayer attached to a toilet?! To help them spray their bums? I mentioned this to another agent and he said, “Oh, I have that on my toilet.” What?!?! He then said, “It’s to spray off reusable diapers when they’re dirty. I have a 2-year-old.” That might be handy, but gross just the same.

Double TV

June 15th, 2017 · 8 Comments

If you have a built-in entertainment center that’s too narrow for today’s TVs, here’s a solution: leave the older TV in the entertainment center and then mount the newer TV in front of it. And use wire to hold it up!

Natural Shower

June 12th, 2017 · 5 Comments

The sellers thought this was a cool idea.

170612a

Buyers will think this is…? [Note: The sun is nearly straight overhead at noon on June 21st in Phoenix. That window above the shower will get full sun and heat up that bathroom like a sauna.]

Paint Fail

May 23rd, 2017 · 3 Comments

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sponge paint or faux paint. That ugly trend had disappeared in Phoenix until now.

Did they use a baby diaper to sponge the wall?

170523a

And did these sellers use a baby diaper to smear against their walls?
