Thank you to our reader Ella for sending us these photos of a San Angelo, Texas home.
Looks like they installed a squat toilet in the bathroom.
Precision paint stripes.
Pink & black paint plus blue carpet.
Bright red & black paint plus some blue carpet in this bedroom.
Will buyers be all smiles when they see this bedroom?
More subdued colors in this bedroom.
You won’t need a plunger if you have a squat toilet.
What goes in this corner? There’s no hole in the ceiling for a fireplace chimney.
Did they stretch out fly strips to make curtains?
The laundry room.
A second kitchen. The buyer gets to choose the flooring.
Outside we see a storm/tornado cellar or fallout shelter or dungeon or family mausoleum.
There are plenty of hose spigots so you can keep the lawn green and lush.

Southwest décor can be found in many homes in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
Saguaro cactus. In 3D. It’s padded.
It’s not the Southwest unless there are some kokopelli dancers!
Native American statues.
Realistic painting of the Southwest.

Peoria, Arizona short sale.
Staging assistance needed, please.
Another guy’s computer desk with bottle of lotion and toilet paper handy.
Quick. Buy some closet doors and throw everything inside before buyers arrive.
At least she covered up the face on the Justin Bieber poster.
This bedroom is half tidy.
Why did they remove the rug? Buyers might have thought that was the normal color of the carpet.
The pink fabric vertical blinds complement the wallpaper border.
The wallpaper border in the kitchen is birdhouses but they look like outhouses. Did you see the neon green plastic pumpkin too?
Before dining room, with furniture.
After dining room. Maybe they’d better bring back the furniture to cover up the walls.
The master bedroom. Complete with princess blanket used as a curtain.
This is a house with young children and yet the floor fan does not have a protective grille.
What happened to the flooring?
Looking the opposite direction shows more of the flooring problem.
It could have looked worse.
They gave up on the paint.
This photo was taken many months before Halloween.
The patio is surprisingly clear of clutter. Now to work on the peeling paint.

Thank you to our reader Michael for sending us these delightful photos of a San Diego, California home.
Red velvet wallpaper!! Go ahead and touch it. It’s fuzzy.
Same wallpaper in a very cluttered bedroom.
The couch is on blocks of wood.
The drapes and valances match but the furniture does not.
A knotted curtain! Ugh.
It looks like a dog wearing a sweater standing on its hind legs.
The sellers take their grooming seriously.

These Mesa, Arizona sellers wallpapered their entire home in either faux stone or faux wood. The results are, well, see for yourself.
Faux stone wall wallpaper in the master bedroom.
Were they stoned?
Log cabin effect in another bedroom.
Complete with faux river rock fireplace wall. And photographer’s reflection.
We asked the baby to move out of the photo, but just like the wallpaper, he’s stonewalling.
Over to the left, there’s more stone wallpaper.
The pot rack is now a utensil rack.
And yes, more faux stone wallpaper in the kitchen. Will this much wallpaper leave buyers feeling stone cold?

1. You might be upside down with your home’s value, but don’t prove it with the photo!
2. The only lines you should see are lines of people to visit your house.
3. Close-up photos never tell the true story.
4. Your reflection in the bathroom mirrors reflects your photography skills.
The four faces of Eve? She’s reflected four times in this photo. At least we know she’s not a vampire.
5. Fish eye photos creep out buyers. Is that mold on the walls or wallpaper?
6. Don’t take a photo from behind glass.
7. Take photos to show off the features of the house or of a room, not of personal items. It’s doubtful those towels are worth more than $3.
8. Watch out for shadows!
