Knotted curtains are still around, unfortunately.

The knots wrinkle the fabric permanently.

It’s not attractive.

Really?

If the fabric is too long, cut it.

House Faces

February 11th, 2016 · No Comments

When an object is made to look like a human, we commonly call that anthropomorphizing.  Trying to spell that word is fun, so when I googled it and found out the definition is different (talking about an object as if it was human).  I then googled “when an object looks like a face” and the word pareidolia came up.  There’s an entire website devoted to objects with faces.  Let’s take a look at house faces.

Cute.

This architecture style was very popular in the Phoenix metro area in the late 1990s.  Here’s a 1998 home in Surprise, Arizona.

Overly ornate exterior.  The Tammy Faye of home faces?

Watch Out For Spiders & Scorpions

February 9th, 2016 · 5 Comments

I showed this house yesterday.  We were greeted by stained, ripped carpet on the stairs.  Not a good sign.  And then we saw this in the master bedroom.  Scorpion bug spray on the dresser.

Time for a new mattress in another bedroom.

And the hole in the wall was another great selling feature.  The buyer said no.

February Is TV Sweeps Month

February 4th, 2016 · 1 Comment

February is a big month for the Nielsen ratings.  People are filling out their log books all month.  And leaving their TVs on all day long.

It will ruin the ratings if they turn off the TV.

But there are no ratings for video games.

Why would they install a huge TV to the side?  Won’t their necks be sore?

Family photos and collectibles will require a lot of time to pack up when this home sells.

Not much room for guests to sit in the cluttered dining room.

Interesting juxtaposition between the Native American art and the Redskins football pillow.  You might want to rethink that pillow, Mr. & Mrs. Seller.
