The Nightmare Before Halloween

November 12th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Twas the night before Halloween and all through this house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse?

Now let’s take a look inside this Great Bend, Pennsylvania house. [Thank you to KG for sending us these photos]
Here we see a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray, plus sugary breakfast cereals.

Ashtray in the bathroom.

There is a child’s toilet in the living room! Dad is paralyzed with indecision: should he remove the toilet first or the Halloween balloon or unblock the front door?

And there’s the child! A little big for that training toilet. He seems sad. Perhaps because he’s not allow access to the balloons?

Party like it’s 1999. Or 1979.

Sorry, but that planking fad ended three years ago.

Band practice.

Like father like son. A drum set in the boy’s bedroom.

Cluttered kitchen.

Enclosed patio with dog and clutter.

Cluttered Coolidge Cottage

November 9th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Lots of stuff piled on in this Coolidge, Arizona home.

Baskets, spinning wheel, pot rack, and more. Lots of visual distractions.

It’s hard to see the kitchen because of the pot rack.

TV’s on. At least the pet is not in the photo.

There are two fly swatters in the kitchen, a shovel in the living room, and now a broom in the bonus room.

I have that same desk in my home office. It’s at least 20 years old. From Office Max.

Another view of the office and bonus room.

At least the doggy pee pads don’t have urine or feces in this photo. But why take a photo of it?

Keep Out

November 5th, 2017 · 1 Comment

These Hallstead, Pennsylvania sellers want buyers to keep out of the bedroom. [Thank you, KG, for sending these photos]

Pride of ownership.

No sign needed here. Buyers may be inclined to keep out of this bedroom too.

This bedroom has a lovely view out the window. You’ll have to trust us.

Creepy knives.

Happy birthday to all of us.

The living room. The chair has little booties.

The living room as seen from the front door. The sellers felt it was important to cover up the nice flooring with a rug.

The holiday canned food drive is off to a roaring success.

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Trash Day

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Save! Yes, save everything. Keep it all.

Collect more.

Put everything on display.

It’s fun to sleep in the living room when the bedrooms are full.

A case of foam lunch trays might not be enough.

Keeping the blinds closed makes a Phoenix home feel cooler in the hot summer.

Fine dining.

Kinda ironic that the trash can is empty.

At least the sink is empty, thank you.

Tidying up the kitchen was obviously a back burner agenda item.

Let’s Ensure the cat litter box is always clean for visiting buyers.

Furniture included with full price offer.

Vintage kitchen.

What were mattress companies thinking back in the day with that horrible urine-yellow color? Or maybe they were actually very clever!

Mirror, mirror, on the floor. Who’s the fairest house of all?

Wall to ceiling to wall wood paneling.

Some bleach and this bathroom could be cute.

Cobwebs & More

August 31st, 2017 · 8 Comments

The seller was living in this house when the photos were taken, oblivious to the spider webs all around.

Watch your step in the kitchen.

More cobwebs and stuff in the living room.

She’s serving cob salad in the dining room?

More stuff.
