So much fun can be had in this Philadelphia, Pennsylvania back yard.  You can play in the weeds, you can pick up sticks, you can wave at the dog next door, and plenty more.

Didn’t Get the Memo

April 10th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It is highly recommended that you straighten up your house before selling.  And remove visual distractions, like Spider-Man blankets.

Repeat…no visual distractions, like Arizona Cardinals football blankets.  Or a bra on the bed.  Or wolf bedspreads.

Please turn off the TV, clean the ceiling fan blades, and unknot the curtains.  Yes, we see you, Mr. Socks, sitting on the bed.

Please remove kisses and frosting on the windows.  And maybe remove the mirrors from around the bathtub.

Please remove the vacuum, the shelves (with full encyclopedia set) blocking the window, the blanket blocking the other window.  And the bicycle, the wind chime, and the dream catchers.

Please turn off the TV.

Please remove the dogs.

Please remove the hangers and the flyswatter.  And unknot the curtains.

Patio Pets

March 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment

We’re seeing dogs on sellers’ patios lately.  They might be used to distract buyers from noticing the clutter.

What ladder?  What lawn mower?  What tire?  All I see is a dog.

The four dogs and their owner are hoping you don’t notice the peeling paint and clutter.

At least the seller picked up the dog poop.  It is disgusting to visit a home with a poopy back yard.

Pee pad?  Gross!

Another quality short sale!

The owners are hoping the bank will let them sell it for less than what they owe.

Therefore, you would think the sellers would present their home in the best possible way.

After all, they are asking a huge favor from their bank.

Dirty bathroom.  Why would the bank be motivated to forgive their debt?

Cat and lots of furniture.

Fifty Shades of Grey Metal

Christian & Anastasia would not listen to their Realtor about removing their “love” cage before selling their home.  Guess who’s in the doghouse now because the house hasn’t sold.
