The caption for this Mesa, Arizona home listing’s photo reads “family room.”  We’re not sure what’s going on behind the curtains.  An atrium?  A mausoleum?  There’s a bench for people to look away from the window or toward the window.

Ten Minutes & 3 Boxes

July 18th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Please let us tidy up this Mesa, Arizona home.  We’d only need ten minutes and some empty boxes.  You can time us.  1, 2, 3, go!  Remove the prescription bottle.  Remove everything on the kitchen counters.  Remove everything off the front, side, and top of the refrigerator.  And then remove all of the family photos in the next room.  Done!  Total cost: $0.  Benefit to the seller:  more buyers interested in seeing the home and higher offers.
