We continue to see people show up in real estate promotional photos.

I guess a grilled sandwich is not an option right now.

Better Real Estate Photos Needed

June 29th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Come on.  We can do better than these.  Buyer rely on photos to determine if there is an interest in seeing a house.

A photo of a photo.  With a car blocking the house.

It does get hot in Phoenix, but it won’t kill you to step outside the car for 15 seconds.

Super creepy.  No fish-eye photos please.

The photo’s caption reads “master bedroom.”  Does it have a window, a closet, or a door?  Is it deeper than five feet?

Bargain Basement

June 28th, 2016 · 3 Comments

A few readers have asked recently if there are basements in the Phoenix area.  Very few.  Some in the older homes built in the 1920s-1940s.  Maybe a few in the 1980s-1990s.  The ground is too hard here.  Not worth the money and time to dig or excavate a basement.

And then this Glendale, Arizona home popped up this morning; sold for $60,000.  A fixer-upper with no air conditioning.  With a hole in the floor.

Here’s your basement!

Don’t Look Up

Martha complained that Rick’s smelly #2s could peel paint, but this is ridiculous!

Nothing to see up here, folks.  Keep looking down at the upgraded flooring and admire the custom drapery.

Careful the peeled paint doesn’t fall into your food in the kitchen.

Cats & Dogs

The cat is looking back in disgust at the cluttered mess.

Will the dog attack or not?  That could scare buyers away.

Attention hog dog.
