Emergency Kits

September 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Help yourself to a Mountain Dew.

Safety first. Two fire extinguishers just in case.

Entry without carpet on the left. Kitchen in the back left. Dining in the back right. Living room with stained carpet to the right.

Dining room with extra carpet. And emergency kits.

The dark carpet helps camouflage the stains.

Hallway, no carpet.

Opposite view, hallway, no carpet.


Guest bathroom. And there’s the guest!


Another view of the bedroom. Did we have to see the bras?

Back yard. With outdoor carpeting.

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.

Dusty Piano

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 · 7 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.

Matching drapes and wallpaper.

Not Short On Belongings

August 14th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona, but long on the list of personal belongings on display.

Are you distracted enough by all the stuff to ignore the two missing tiles?

The closets are full.

The sellers ignored the ceiling.

Another view of the room.

And another view. Shoe‘dn’t the footwear be stored in a closet?

Stuffed full.

More ceiling damage.

He could not.

Kitchen islands are great for adding extra storage space.

Fine dining.

Too many cobwebs on the chandelier.

Missed opportunity to highlight the big picture window and vaulted ceiling.

One light bulb does not match the others.

What happened to the tiles by the drain?

Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 9 Comments

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.


Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.


Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.


We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.


Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.


Sorry again for the nudity.


Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.


Here’s another view of this room.


All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.


The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.


Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.


Wonderful life. Fun.


He’s counting all of the overhead lights.


It’s Christmas year ’round.


The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.


Shoes are lined up on the stairs.


Beware of pickpockets and loose women.


Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.


He’s waiting to join you in the shower.


The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

Home Office

Our reader Sarah wants to know why there are office chairs at this Wilmington, Delaware home. With laminate flooring, they probably roll around very well. Let’s hold a staff meeting and ask the cat if he knows.


Same house, different room. With a view of the ocean.

No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.


Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?


We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.


We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.


Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.


Crack in the corner of the room.


We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.


And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.


Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.


Now let’s visit the kitchen.


Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.


Help wanted!


Old flooring.


Here’s a bedroom.


We turn to the right.


And to the right again.


Another bedroom.


And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.


We look to the right.


And to the right again, showing the stained wall.


We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.


Total rehab needed.

Clowning Around In Canada

May 21st, 2017 · 5 Comments

Thank you to two readers who sent this photos, M.L. and Jennifer. A house of clowns in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, not far from the town of Ontario. Enjoy!


The sellers collected thousands of clowns.


Everyone loves clowns.


Especially buyers.
