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.

Grandma’s House

January 3rd, 2016 · 3 Comments

These photos were sent to us from a fan.  Perhaps he was nostalgic for the good ol’ days.  Not necessarily ugly by this blog’s standards, but let’s say charming, like Grandma’s house.  From Grove City, Pennsylvania.

Rudolph’s Predecessor

December 21st, 2015 · 2 Comments

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer would do anything to fly with Santa Claus.  Anything.  Bart the reindeer mysteriously disappeared.  Hmmm.  “Rudolph, have you seen Bart?”  “Bart who?”  Poor Bart.

Too Lazy To Clean Out?

November 13th, 2015 · 4 Comments

Here we have a messy house.  Either two things happened:  the seller is a messy person and doesn’t care how the house looks when selling or the renters moved out with their stuff left behind and the seller didn’t bother to clear it out before selling.

Now this mess becomes the buyer’s problem.

Hold on, maybe this was an estate sale.  The owner died or went to a nursing home?  Then it becomes the family’s burden to remove the stuff before selling.

The buyer discounts her/his offer to reflect the cost of trash removal.

The seller or seller’s family then gets less money on the sale.

Chaos.
