Budding New Real Estate Agent

January 9th, 2015 · 4 Comments

You must be at least 18 years old to be a real estate agent in Arizona.  But you’re never too young to be a wannabe agent.  This kid’s got a knack for selling homes!  He’s stamping down the ground after installing the for sale sign by himself.

He’s already taking buyers to see the house!

Fixer-Upper

This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.

Notice how the refrigerator is missing in the photo above and is now seen on the far right side in the photo below.

Ugly, dirty cabinets.  Dirty ceiling.  Dirty kitchen.

As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain.  Ugh.

In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.

At least they are patriotic.

There’s that knotted curtain!  It makes a statement.

The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.

The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did.  Just barely.

Dirty air conditioner vent.  Dusty & cluttered bedroom.

Gut(ter) Reaction

What a weird word gutter is.  Gutter.  Seeing gutter extensions at this Mesa, Arizona home tells buyers that rainwater floods the patio without them.  This is the only solution?

Looks like someone dashed out of this Mesa, Arizona home in hurry.  They left the TV behind.

Dine and dash?

Oh, that’s why landlords charge a cleaning fee.

Tall weeds surrounding the patio = they likely never went outside.

I doubt the landlord will give them a good reference.
