When times were simpler. [Peeples Valley, Arizona]
They matched the green in the carpet with the green in the sofa pattern. [Payson, Arizona]
Muted colors but still has a wow factor. [Blythe, California]
The velvet is crushed, like my spirit. [Mesa, Arizona]
1962 home. Is the sofa that old? Or at least from the 1970s?
These Peoria, Arizona sellers placed their sofas back-to-back.
Makes for awkward conversations.

34 rolls of toilet paper in the bath, 34 rolls of paper. Take one down, flush it around, 33 rolls of TP. Poor sap. He’s terrified he’ll run out of toilet paper!

Football, football, football. Which teams will do great this year?
The Arizona Cardinals?
The Dallas Cowboys?
The Pittsburgh Steelers?
Or the Green Bay Packers? [Please note the chunks of cheese on the wall and the two bottles of hand lotion in this man cave.]

These Mesa, Arizona sellers wallpapered their entire home in either faux stone or faux wood. The results are, well, see for yourself.
Faux stone wall wallpaper in the master bedroom.
Were they stoned?
Log cabin effect in another bedroom.
Complete with faux river rock fireplace wall. And photographer’s reflection.
We asked the baby to move out of the photo, but just like the wallpaper, he’s stonewalling.
Over to the left, there’s more stone wallpaper.
The pot rack is now a utensil rack.
And yes, more faux stone wallpaper in the kitchen. Will this much wallpaper leave buyers feeling stone cold?

Four bathrooms in need of renovation.
Sure must be fun to take a shower in that tiny dark space.
Ripped flooring or stains?
Dirty toilet, dirty walls, dirty floor. Odd toilet placement.
Nothing a little glue and bleach can’t fix.

This is really bad. I mean, c’mon now. Two things wrong with this Mesa, Arizona patio roof:
1. They used the wrong roofing material, roof shingles, when they should have used rolled SIS roofing material. The slope of the patio roof is too low for regular shingles.
2. They didn’t trim the sides.
The only thing they cut were corners. What other home maintenance items did they skimp on?

August 26th is National Dog Day.
It is the dog days of August.
How much is that doggie in the window?
I was on a Realtor home tour this summer. As we approached the next home, there was a pit bull a few houses away, chained outside, in the 100+ degree heat, barking. Many agents thought it was cruel for the dog to be chained outside in the heat; many others were turned off by the dog (buyers would have to drive past it every day).

1. You might be upside down with your home’s value, but don’t prove it with the photo!
2. The only lines you should see are lines of people to visit your house.
3. Close-up photos never tell the true story.
4. Your reflection in the bathroom mirrors reflects your photography skills.
The four faces of Eve? She’s reflected four times in this photo. At least we know she’s not a vampire.
5. Fish eye photos creep out buyers. Is that mold on the walls or wallpaper?
6. Don’t take a photo from behind glass.
7. Take photos to show off the features of the house or of a room, not of personal items. It’s doubtful those towels are worth more than $3.
8. Watch out for shadows!
