Miserable looking dog in a kitchen.

170425a

He does not look happy.

170425b

Maybe he’s mad that his owners are selling the house?

170425c

He’s literally being pug-nacious.

Free TV With Home Purchase

February 12th, 2017 · 1 Comment

One of our readers sent these photos of a Los Lunas, New Mexico property for sale. The sellers will leave the projection TV to the buyers. It already comes with rabbit ears for better TV reception!

170212loslunasnm1

Our reader wants to know if the seller fired their previous real estate broker since a “for sale” sign is on the ground.

170212loslunasnm2

Beware of dog!

170212loslunasnm3

Chained for your protection.

170212loslunasnm4

What fun they must have all day long.

170212loslunasnm5

The neighbor’s yard looks a little tired.

Before & After Home Staging Examples

February 4th, 2017 · 5 Comments

I listed a condo that was currently rented. Photos mean a lot to buyers. It’s important to leave a good first impression. My first impression of this condo was not good. I immediately got to work, moving and removing items before taking photos.

Before Kitchen. Looks cluttered. And the tenant had recently cooked sausage, leaving a greasy fry pan.

170204a

After Kitchen. I cleared the refrigerator and removed the knives, soap, cutting board, measuring cups, utensils, spatula, fry pan, towel, and iPad. You will notice that the microwave clock times do not make sense. After removing the items and moving on to the next room, I realized it would be nice to share before & after photos. I painstakingly replaced all items that were moved (so the tenant wouldn’t know). And then took the photo. Thus, the Before photo is actually the After After photo.

170204b

Before Living Room.

170204c

After Living Room. I removed the tray, the plate, the glass, the dog bed, family photos, the dog, paper towels eaten by the dog, and glass cleaner.

170204d

Before Office.

170204e

After Office. I removed the bicycle, golf club bag, and inflatable swan.
