Pink Parfait

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

Please, please, let me straighten out that toilet rug.  The right side isn’t flush with the floor.  Pardon the pun.  [Apache Junction, Arizona]

Yesterday Was Flag Day

June 15th, 2014 · 3 Comments

June 14th is Flag Day.  A day to proudly display the American flag.  Here are some home sellers with their own versions of displaying the American flag.

Wrong!  The flag was hung backwards.  The blue field is supposed to be at the upper left.  [Phoenix]

Wrong!  The flag is backwards in this Tempe, Arizona home.

The blue field is in the upper left, so bonus points for that.  But using the American flag as a window curtain is not cool.  [Jonesboro, Arkansas]

These Wickenburg, Arizona sellers used the flag as a curtain, but at least it wasn’t a real flag.

It’s not backwards or over a window.  Thank you.  [Superior, Wisconsin]

What a difference a room makes.  The living room (with American flag) is neat and tidy in a Marshfield, Missouri home.

But when you get to the dining room, bam!  Clutter & family photos.  And an American flag.

Old Glory.  Long may it wave.  [Goodyear, Arizona]

Hey, wait.  That’s not an American flag.  Oops.  (It’s a flag from Liberia)

Snacks In San Antonio

Can’t afford drapes for your dining room?  Do what these San Antonio, Texas sellers did.  Steal a plastic banner from a gas station’s convenience store.

Two tacos for 99 cents.  Two mini burgers for $1.49.

The living room is the first room buyers see when visiting a house.

The way a room is staged sets the stage for buyers’ impressions.

Sellers need to decide what is necessary in a room and what items should go.

90% of buyers nowadays see house photos online before going to the homes.  They’ve made their decision at their computer.  Just saying.
