Pot Stickers

August 7th, 2017 · 4 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 · 2 Comments

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

Exposed brick!

Polka dots!


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?

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.


So clever.

Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 11 Comments

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.


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


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


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.


Sorry again for the nudity.


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


Here’s another view of this room.


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


The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.


Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.


Wonderful life. Fun.


He’s counting all of the overhead lights.


It’s Christmas year ’round.


The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.


Shoes are lined up on the stairs.


Beware of pickpockets and loose women.


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


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.
