December 22nd, 2013 · 2 Comments

These Trenton City, New Jersey sellers had ideas floating around about making this a cool loft/attic space.  They tried to paint the ceiling red, but didn’t put enough paint on the roller.  They tried…  No, they didn’t.

Vacant Or Furnished? The Big Real Estate Question

December 4th, 2013 · 4 Comments

This question comes up a lot:  Should I sell my house with furniture or empty?  It depends on the furniture and depends on the space.  Some homes have great rooms or open concept spaces that confuse buyers when unfurnished.  Others might look better without furnishings.   Here’s a good example.

Furnished Family Room

November 17th, 2013 · 2 Comments

These Houston, Texas sellers came up with this idea.  Add wood paneling strips to look like icicles.

New Season of Hoarding: Buried Alive Started Last Week

November 6th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Hoarding: Buried Alive TV show on TLC started its new season last Wednesday.  A new episode is shown tonight (it features a very dirty kitchen and a home with a rat infestation).

This Phoenix home isn’t quite at that level, but sure to scare most buyers.

They have plenty of toilet paper in the bathroom.

Cluttered bedroom.

Lots going on in the kitchen.

By the way, they are selling it as a short sale.  I hope the bank recognizes the effort they put into getting the house ready to sell.
