The suit of armor. A ramp. And a secret door. Grab me a golf ball and a club and let me play miniature golf! When I was growing up, we called it goony golf. Also known as goofy golf or putt putt golf.

Those dreaded knotted curtains are back. And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.
Here they are from a different angle.
Knotted curtains are like a virus. They spread to other windows in a house. Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.
We don’t luv knotted curtains.
People are now knotting bed sheets used as curtains.
Either knot them both or none. We vote for none.
How is a buyer supposed to exit that door with a giant knot hanging there?
Please make this trend go away.
It’s knot a good look.

Today is July 25th. Christmas in July is celebrated today. Here are several homes that celebrate Christmas well past December 25th.
San Antonio, Texas. As seen on May 25th.
Another San Antonio home with a Christmas tree still up as of May 25th. Hint, hint: it’s okay to update your real estate photos.
The decorations were removed, but the tree was still there when this Phoenix home was listed on February 3rd.
The decorations are gone and half the tree was packed away when this Phoenix home was listed on March 28th.
This Scottsdale, Arizona home was listed in March, with the Christmas tree still decorated.
Don’t trip on the cord when you enter the house! This San Tan Valley, Arizona home was listed as a short sale January 9th with the Christmas tree still up. It took 7 months under contract for the short sale to be completed.
This Surprise, Arizona home was listed as a short sale in early January and it took 8 months under contract for the short sale to be completed.
Listed January 11th in Glendale, Arizona.

Buyers start their home searches on-line and they judge houses based on photos. Sellers only get one chance to impress and entice buyers.
Buyers don’t want to see fingers in real estate photos.
Buyers are turned off by over-exposed photos.
Buyers are also turned off by under-exposed photos. Yes, these are actual photos used to promote the sale of houses.
Buyers do not like panoramic photos, especially if several photos were stitched together. Look at the uneven floor.
Unless it’s a view of mountains or a golf course outside the back yard, panoramic photos indoors should not be used.
Buyers do not like fish-eye photos or peeping Tom photos through fences or in bathrooms.

Real estate photography tip: Be careful with shadows.
If you see your shadow in a photo, either move to a different spot or take the photo at a different time of day.
The time of day makes a difference. The shadow dominates the photo.
Another example of too much shadow and too little house.
Real estate broker signs are not allowed in MLS photos, so this photographer photoshopped over the sign with grass! Wouldn’t it have been better to take the photo from a different angle? And different time of day?

Please, please, let me straighten out that toilet rug. The right side isn’t flush with the floor. Pardon the pun. [Apache Junction, Arizona]
Please, please, let me turn that shower spray nozzle around. Little details like this drive me crazy. [Hot Springs, Arkansas]
Please, please, let me adjust the window blinds so they are at the same level. Uneven blinds make me shutter, er, shudder. [Hot Springs, Arkansas]

They created a beach cove in their family room. How nice.
They built a ”reef” around the fireplace.
You can hear the ocean waves lapping the shore.

That’s how the sign reads. And no selling the house with yer sponge paint on. [By the way, you can switch refrigerator handles. Would be easier if the handles were on the left side. Just saying.]
Here’s a close-up view of the sponge paint. They converted a coat closet in the hallway to a pantry.
