A Farewell To Arms

The body parts keep piling up in real estate promotional photos.

An arm here.  [In this Thanksgiving themed photo, it could have been a turkey leg; instead we’ve got a turkey’s arm.]

It Has Wainscoting

November 2nd, 2014 · 3 Comments

Let’s start with the positives about this Evansville, Indiana home:  it has wainscoting.  And at least they didn’t do one more twist to knot the curtains.  And for that, we thank you.  Now about the fan, the dog, the cords on the floor, the cord on the ceiling with foil (!!), that damaged wall, the dream catcher, and the dirt.

Dog Stars

October 28th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Most dogs are not included in the sale of the house.  So why take and include a photo of them?

This dog gets its own bedroom!

“If I sit still like the elephant, no one will notice me.”

“Stop drilling me to get up!”

“Remind me to return the power drill to the neighbor.”

If the dog won’t leave, then have the photographer move the camera to the right.

The body language (arms crossed) tells us this seller is not lifting another finger to tidy up the house.  How nice.  [Thank you, Elsbeth, for sending us this photo.]

August 26th is National Dog Day.

Attack dog.

I was on a Realtor home tour this summer.  As we approached the next home, there was a pit bull a few houses away, chained outside, in the 100+ degree heat, barking.  Many agents thought it was cruel for the dog to be chained outside in the heat; many others were turned off by the dog (buyers would have to drive past it every day).

Family Intervention Needed

August 15th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Four family rooms for your consideration.

What would you remove in this family room to look less busy?

After the family photos are removed and the curtain unknotted, what else should be done here?

This one’s too easy: the gun safe, the miniature popcorn machine, the jacket, the dog, the tie-dye towel, the cuckoo clock, etc.

The vines, the clothes, the macramé.  Anything else?

Someone won two big trophies. They weren’t for home staging.

Now we move over to the kitchen where we see two refrigerators.  And more prescription bottles within reach of children.

There’s a kid looking in the window!  A peeping tom!  Maybe he can help tidy up this house.

No wonder this kitchen is cluttered; there’s only a few upper cabinets.

There’s a 2nd washing machine out on the cluttered back patio and two dryers.

There’s refrigerator #3.  In the full sun.  And a puppy in a cage.  Oh, and at least 5 bicycles.

Five scrubby pads.

Pringles potato chips make for a great midnight snack.  More prescription bottles with easy access.  “Mommy, your Oxycontin pills are fun!”
