Five Dirty Bathrooms

November 16th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Look at the dirt and hair on the vanity counter. Then look at the shower floor. Yuk.

Let’s start with the mirror and the shower door, thank you.

Don’t let the tile pattern distract you from the soap scum and rust.

A good cleaning is needed here.

It is popular nowadays to install a back splash in a kitchen. Personally, I think it looks too busy and visually distracting and unnecessary. Let’s look at twelve different types of back splashes, starting with circles.

Thin horizontal multi-color glass pieces.

Micro-thin pieces.

Thin vertical multi-color glass pieces.

Metal.

Random pattern six-inch ceramic tile.

Multi-size ceramic tile, almost a Versailles pattern.

Quilt pattern.

Brick steps.

Diagonal.

Floor tile on the wall.

Time for another Spider-Man movie. Along with yet another new actor portraying Spider-Man.

Will movie reviews on the Web be positive?

170707b

I stopped watching Spider-Man movies at the 2nd one when a cocky Tobey Maguire danced down the street. I felt it jumped the shark at that point.

If only home sellers had Spidey sense when staging and selling.

Amateur Real Estate Photography

June 27th, 2017 · 2 Comments

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.

170627a

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.

170627c

Watch out for shadows!

170627d

We said, watch out for shadows.
