Another quality short sale!

The owners are hoping the bank will let them sell it for less than what they owe.

Therefore, you would think the sellers would present their home in the best possible way.

After all, they are asking a huge favor from their bank.

What Knot?

Help us rid this scourge of home decorating: the horrible knotted curtain!

Now people are adding knotted curtains as decoration in doorways!

A pair of scissors, please, so we can cut off the excess fabric and save our eyes from the knots.

Why knot up the curtains?  Why knot not let the drapes hang down on the sides of the windows?

There’s more fabric in the knot than in the rest of the curtain!  Why buy such big curtains for a small window?

Triple knotted?  Ridiculous.

This person’s not going anywhere.  She/he turned her/his bedroom into a studio apartment.  It’s a living room and a kitchen and an office too.

In the next room, we see boxes with the wording “Paper’s, get rid of” and “burn letters.”  I volunteer to help clear out this room so it shows nicer.  With all that clutter, buyers won’t notice the clean, nice window blinds or large room size.

Short & Not Sweet

Short sale in Gilbert, Arizona.  Notice how the carpet was originally pink in color (where the bed used to be).  And notice the carpet torn up.  And the window “drapes.”

Dirty walls, cluttered bedroom, camouflage curtain.
