Amateur Real Estate Photography

June 27th, 2017 · 1 Comment

When in doubt, hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your home when selling. Otherwise, you’ll get stuck with these five examples.

First up, we see an amateur photographer who can take a photo of a house on his/her cell phone but can’t figure out how to transfer it correctly. He/she took a screen shot of his/her phone and used that as the photo. By the way, all 8 photos of the property were just like this one.

Speaking of screen shots, now we have an example of a shot of a screen.

170627b

Distorted photo yet it was still used to promote the house.

Watch out for shadows!

We said, watch out for shadows.

Escape the Heat

June 26th, 2017 · 2 Comments

It’s been exceptionally hot in Phoenix this past week. 116F on Saturday and Sunday and 120F last week. Historically, the hottest temperature in Phoenix was 122F (50C) 27 years ago today (June 26, 1990). I was freezing in my office; the building air conditioning was set at 72F. I drove home without air conditioning just so I could defrost. 50 degree difference. The hot car felt good.
If you want to escape the Phoenix heat, consider buying a home in other Arizona towns. We have a few suggestions.

Globe, Arizona.

Eloy, Arizona. (almost as hot as Phoenix)

170626b

Superior, Arizona.

170626c

Mammoth, Arizona.

One Love – Several Stains

June 17th, 2017 · 4 Comments

That is a soiled, dirty mattress. Gross. Not sure if Bob Marley has any love for it. Go, Steelers?

Sneakers/trainers were placed there to distract you from the stained mattress.

Double TV

June 15th, 2017 · 8 Comments

If you have a built-in entertainment center that’s too narrow for today’s TVs, here’s a solution: leave the older TV in the entertainment center and then mount the newer TV in front of it. And use wire to hold it up!

No Bath Today

June 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Did they throw the bathtub out with the baby water?

170606a

It’s more convenient to leave the toilet tank lid off so you can manually fix the misaligned flapper.

170606b

Hold on. The seller’s on his way to the hardware store to pick up duct tape to cover the missing tiles.
