This photo’s caption reads, no joke, “Couldn’t get Emily to move.”  Then may we suggest moving the camera away?

Mr. & Mrs. Seller, are you sure your house is ready to sell?  Nothing else you think you could do before buyers arrive?  Is that a hat collection on the back wall?

Termite damage at an office building in Scottsdale, Arizona.  This is the front door of a title/escrow company.  I saw it yesterday when my client had a signing appointment.  The termites created a tube behind the slate tile baseboard, which was hidden from view.  And then they chewed the wood trim up at least 7 feet.
