Dog Stars

October 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Most dogs are not included in the sale of the house.  So why take and include a photo of them?

This dog gets its own bedroom!

“If I sit still like the elephant, no one will notice me.”

“Stop drilling me to get up!”

“Remind me to return the power drill to the neighbor.”

If the dog won’t leave, then have the photographer move the camera to the right.

The dead tree adds so much to the curb appeal.

The orange tree is dead.

Two half-dead trees or should we be more optimistic and say two half-alive trees?

This tree doesn’t look healthy.  Why did the seller take a photo of it?

Flooring Choices, Not Choice Flooring

October 17th, 2014 · 3 Comments

You only live once.  Go ahead and install laminate flooring at different directions in one room.

Or spend a weekend installing your own mosaic tile floor.  Bonus points for originality.

Throw in some random colored tiles to add excitement to the floor.

Octagon shaped objects usually mean stop, which is what should have happened before installing this tile.

Vague Real Estate Photos

October 6th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Sometimes you can’t get a clear idea about the look of a house.  Especially if the photos are not up to par, as promoted for this Mesa, Arizona home.

Sideways bathroom.

Upside down hallway.  Well, it helps buyers see the ceiling’s water stain more clearly.

We can’t see what the shower looks like.

We can’t see what the bathroom looks like either.  No other photos available of the bathroom.

Use your imagination for this bedroom.

The photographer shifted to the right, but we still can’t see the bedroom.

The only photo of the kitchen and we can’t see it.  Is your curiosity piqued enough to see this house?

Attic Access

Five homes with holes in the ceilings.  Because?

The ceiling’s so low, perhaps the seller cracked the drywall open with his head.

Or maybe the seller wants to show the insulation to buyers?

This home has no insulation.

There’s no hole, but…
