Built-In Media Niches

April 18th, 2017 · 2 Comments

It was popular in the 1990s and early 2000s to create massive built-in entertainment centers or media niches. Back in the day when TVs were narrower and also when big TVs were very deep. But nowadays, most of these media niches are functionally obsolete. Today’s TVs are wider and shallow.

This TV actually fits in the niche. But the surrounding niches only encourage home owners to become collectors. Future hoarders?

170418b

Sometimes they are used only to display items.

170418c

They can also be demoted to secondary status. The knotted curtain gets full priority in this room.

170418d

Or completely ignored. They’re also great dust collectors.

Can’t see the house because the seller’s cars are in the way.

Are they selling the car or the house?

Same house as above photo and same poor quality.

170414d

Really?

April 11th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Lots of dead leaves plus a tumbleweed for good measure. The sellers didn’t bother to rake and sweep the patio.

Untidy Bedrooms

March 30th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Hint, hint. It’s better to clear off and make the bed before taking real estate photos.

170330a

These sellers converted a bedroom into storage and a home gym. Looks like they like to do planks.

170330b

Too much going on in this real estate photo. Looks like a robot on the right side.

Spill the Beings?

March 29th, 2017 · 3 Comments

What is that giant stain on the carpet? What spilled there? Blood? Motor oil?

170329a

Did it run toward the wall or did come from under the wall?

170329b

Similar stain in another room. Creepy. This wasn’t a one-off. More like two people were “offed.”

170329c

From another room in the same house. Shots fired?
