Home Signs

August 29th, 2015 · 5 Comments

Our reader Tyson is not a fan of cutesy signs in homes.  He sent us examples from a Queen Creek, Arizona home.

Eat!

Love Is All You Need!

It’s as if the sellers tried to copy new model home decorations.  All the signs come across as overkill.

Walls Need Help

August 28th, 2015 · No Comments

Were they stoned when they stoned this wall?

A door was sealed over?

If they didn’t like the paint color, they could have painted over it instead of peeling it off.

It looks like siding and paper for an exterior wall, but this is inside the house.  Odd and ugly.

Why, Why, What?

Why take this photo?  Why include it in a real estate listing?  Why not wait until the room renovation is complete and then take the photo of an empty room?

Mirror Mortals

August 26th, 2015 · No Comments

It’s pretty obvious, folks.  You take the photo, look at it, if you see yourself in it, take another photo.

Is that a print film camera?  Why are there buckets in the bathtub?

We see you.  Can’t you see you?

Nice try, but we still see your arms and camera.  Try again.  What is on the wall below the sink?

Oh, lady, come on.  Hire a professional photographer if you can’t figure it out.

Not only is a blurry photo not acceptable, you’re in the photo.  Take another photo.  Digital pictures are free.  It won’t cost a penny to take another one.

Walk-In Tub

August 19th, 2015 · 10 Comments

We’re not making fun of this bathroom.  We know you are curious what those walk-in bathtubs look like.  Here’s one from Apache Junction, Arizona.  You walk in thru the small door on the side, then assumedly take off your clothes and sit down on the bench there, then you fill up the tub.  The weight of the water keeps the door closed during your bath.  It’s not really a bathtub; more like a sitting bath.  It uses a lot of water.  After bathing, you drain the tub and have to wait and wait and wait.  Can’t open the door until it’s empty.  Hopefully you don’t shiver to death while waiting.  Don’t forget your towel!  If you use the hand-held shower head to wash your hair, you’ll likely get water splashed outside the tub.

SkyRanch In Carefree, Arizona

We are not picking on this Carefree, Arizona house.  Just thought you’d get a kick out of seeing these fancy sports cars.  How many of these can you identify?  [click on photos to expand]

How about these?

This is a 5,576 square foot home on 1.13 acres that is located in SkyRanch in Carefree.  It sold recently for $1.25 million.  In addition to the huge garage you just saw, there is a 54′ x 51′ hangar.  Yes, you can park a plane in your hangar.

SkyRanch is a fly-in community.  There is a runway right there behind the houses.  It’s approved for planes under 12,500 pounds.  The house in the middle of the photo with the white roof is the home that just sold.
