Holiday Inn Wants Their Towel Back

January 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Karen sent us these photos of an Aberdeen, Maryland home. Here’s evidence of a stolen Holiday Inn towel! Shame on them.

The other bathroom has a busy look. Let’s remove all the stuff on each side of the shower.

Which looks twice as bad when it’s reflected in a mirror.

Yes, it’s a game room, but the rifle could go, as well as the Pepsi clock and life preserver.

When you enter the house, you see visual clutter. Clear out the foyer.

Nice home. Just needs tidying up here and there. Moral of the story: present your home in the best manner and don’t steal hotel towels.

Boxing Day

December 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Today is Boxing Day in Canada. Last year, we posted a photo of a punching bag to celebrating boxing. But some Canadian readers said we got it wrong. This year, we’re posting photos of boxes. We hope we get it right this time. Happy Boxing Day!

This Phoenix home has lots and lots of boxes. They really know how to celebrate Boxing Day!

More boxes in the bedroom closet!

Toy collection pinned to the wall. Plus pin-up calendars. And a messy home office. No boxes?

Since they’re selling the house and since it’s Boxing Day today, they should box up all the books and movies.

Cluttered bathroom.

February Is TV Sweeps Month

February 4th, 2016 · 1 Comment

February is a big month for the Nielsen ratings.  People are filling out their log books all month.  And leaving their TVs on all day long.

It will ruin the ratings if they turn off the TV.

But there are no ratings for video games.

Why would they install a huge TV to the side?  Won’t their necks be sore?

They Didn’t Get the Memo

January 27th, 2016 · No Comments

Most buyers nowadays would prefer a home that’s neat and tidy, not cluttered.  Just saying.

It’s okay to pack it all away before selling.  You’d have to pack it anyway when the house sells.  Why not do it now and sell it faster and for more money?

Don’t let buyers get distracted by all of your stuff instead of focusing on the features of the house.

Ask a friend for advice on what to remove and tidy up if you are not sure.  Another suggestion:  take photos of your rooms and then look at them.  You’ll see things differently.
