The fan is featured prominently in this cluttered space.

The protective cover is missing from the fan. But it still works just fine.

Really?!? Rumor is…the resident issued an executive order to have this fence built. And that he made the neighbors pay for it.

Swan Dive

February 7th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Swans etched into shower door glass were popular back in the day.

170207a

The swan turned back into an ugly duckling. How do you squeeze past the vanity and the door to get to the faucets?

170207b

Cleaning that grout must be loads of fun.

170207c

The home’s second bathroom appears to have be renovated by amateurs. Note the uneven grout lines.

170207d

Sigh.

How Atlanta Falcons Fans Reacted Last Night

February 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

By using pareidolia (seeing human faces in inanimate objects), let’s review what happened during last night’s Super Bowl game.

When the score was 28-3, Atlanta Falcons fans had smirks on their faces. “Ha ha ha, Patriots, you’re gonna lose.”

170206a

Then it was tied 28-28!! “Oh no!!!”

170206b

And then when the Patriots won the game in overtime, the Atlanta Falcons fans were not happy. “#@*%^!@!*”

Before & After Home Staging Examples

February 4th, 2017 · 5 Comments

I listed a condo that was currently rented. Photos mean a lot to buyers. It’s important to leave a good first impression. My first impression of this condo was not good. I immediately got to work, moving and removing items before taking photos.

Before Kitchen. Looks cluttered. And the tenant had recently cooked sausage, leaving a greasy fry pan.

170204a

After Kitchen. I cleared the refrigerator and removed the knives, soap, cutting board, measuring cups, utensils, spatula, fry pan, towel, and iPad. You will notice that the microwave clock times do not make sense. After removing the items and moving on to the next room, I realized it would be nice to share before & after photos. I painstakingly replaced all items that were moved (so the tenant wouldn’t know). And then took the photo. Thus, the Before photo is actually the After After photo.

170204b

Before Living Room.

170204c

After Living Room. I removed the tray, the plate, the glass, the dog bed, family photos, the dog, paper towels eaten by the dog, and glass cleaner.

170204d

Before Office.

170204e

After Office. I removed the bicycle, golf club bag, and inflatable swan.
