October 19th, 2017 · 1 Comment

There was only one photo to promote the sale of this home. And this is the one photo the seller chose. You can see his arm on the left side.

Pot Racks Gotta Go

October 14th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Pot racks tend to dominate a real estate photo. It’s best to remove them when selling. Or at least the pots.

Odd placement of the pot rack.

A million canisters. Why so many? Flour, sugar, brown sugar, cookies. That’s four. Then what else?

Visually distracting.

Backyard Paradise

October 2nd, 2017 · 1 Comment

What an amazing back yard. Take off your sock and jacket and roll out the yoga mat. Or sun tan. Or relax under the shade of the tree. Or have a barbeque. So many options.

It’s as if they spray painted the bathroom to look like mold and mildew.

Dirty Laundry

There have been no floods or hurricanes in the Phoenix area. How do you explain the filthy floor of this Mesa, Arizona laundry room? And why did the sellers include this photo for buyers to see?

Walk-In Tub

September 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Walk-in tubs are advertised with the elderly in mind. Easy to enter and exit. Safer. But what about the reality of using one? You can’t fill the tub until the door is closed and you can’t open the door when the tub is filling or filled. Therefore, you must enter the tub when it is empty. Do you disrobe before entering or after? Then you are left naked (and possibly cold) while the tub fills up. By then, you’re probably bored. After bathing, you must wait naked while the tub drains. Shiver, shiver.

In this bathroom, where do you put your clothes or robe or the towel? No towel bars or hooks nearby.

The seat/bench has a scoop in it so you can use the hand-held shower to clean your undercarriage while sitting.

2017-2018 Football Season Is Officially Here

September 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

The 2017-2018 NFL season kicks off tonight. Which team will win the Super Bowl in 2018?

The Arizona Cardinals?

I mean, people go bananas for the Cardinals.

The Oakland Raiders? Or will they take a bath this year?

The Dallas Cowboys?

Dallas Cowboys: America’s team.

Go, Cowboys!

That about sums it up for the Cowboys. People either fear them or loathe them.

Or the Baltimore Ravens? This seller likes the Ravens and the Cowboys.

Let’s Do the Twist

September 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

At least they’re not knotted. There was a time when cabana curtains were very popular in the Phoenix area, to give a resort feel to a back patio. However, the reality was that it’s very dusty and sunny in Phoenix. The curtains got dirty, they stained easily, and the color faded unevenly.

Cobwebs & More

August 31st, 2017 · 7 Comments

The seller was living in this house when the photos were taken, oblivious to the spider webs all around.

Watch your step in the kitchen.

More cobwebs and stuff in the living room.

She’s serving cob salad in the dining room?

More stuff.
