Cluttered Coolidge Cottage

November 9th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Lots of stuff piled on in this Coolidge, Arizona home.

Baskets, spinning wheel, pot rack, and more. Lots of visual distractions.

It’s hard to see the kitchen because of the pot rack.

TV’s on. At least the pet is not in the photo.

There are two fly swatters in the kitchen, a shovel in the living room, and now a broom in the bonus room.

I have that same desk in my home office. It’s at least 20 years old. From Office Max.

Another view of the office and bonus room.

At least the doggy pee pads don’t have urine or feces in this photo. But why take a photo of it?

Pot Racks Gotta Go

October 14th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Pot racks tend to dominate a real estate photo. It’s best to remove them when selling. Or at least the pots.

Odd placement of the pot rack.

A million canisters. Why so many? Flour, sugar, brown sugar, cookies. That’s four. Then what else?

Visually distracting.

In the second bathroom, the newer vanity is smaller than the original vanity.  Mind the gap.

Two Pot Racks

November 6th, 2015 · 4 Comments

About the only time you’ll ever need a dozen pots and pans at the ready is Thanksgiving.  Why do people put their pots on display, especially when they collect dust?  There’s probably no room in the cupboards.  They also have their keys on display.

Visual Distractions

August 14th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Please let me have 10 minutes to stage this kitchen.  I need a few boxes.  Won’t cost a penny.  Let’s remove the family photos, the hanging wine glasses, the hand towels, everything on the counters (including the second microwave), the pot rack, the refrigerator stuff, the coats, the pet bowls & leash, etc.  Why not show off how clean and bright this kitchen really is?  Is that a granite countertop?

Over in the dining room, let’s remove the family photos, everything else on the table, including the prescription bottles.

Pot Racks Aren’t Cool

We continue to see pot racks in homes for sale.  Not cool when they dominate the kitchen.

Not cool when they look ugly.

Not cool when they clutter up a kitchen’s look.

Not cool when you hit your head while doing dishes.

Not cool when they make a small kitchen look smaller.

A Pot Rack In the Bedroom?

November 16th, 2014 · 1 Comment

So much going on in this Gainesville, Georgia bedroom.  First, the pot rack.  Why?  Clown in the corner.  TV box used as a window shade?  And more visual distractions.  We’d rather see the wood floors and the two windows.

Humble Humboldt Home

October 8th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Not quite finished home for sale in Humboldt, Arizona.  Drywall missing from the walls and ceiling.  This is the kitchen.

Cabinet doors are missing but there are stainless steel appliances.

Another view of the kitchen.

The dining room.  Imagine hosting dinner parties here with friends under the glow of the chandelier.

The bathroom toilet is the same one used on the International Space Station?  The can of ant & roach killer doesn’t instill confidence.

This is the master bedroom upstairs.  At least the drywall was installed.

This place has ants and roaches and now flies too.

This is the master bathroom.

This is the view looking down the stairs.  Plenty of shelves and wall space to display your knick knacks.

These Mesa, Arizona sellers wallpapered their entire home in either faux stone or faux wood.  The results are, well, see for yourself.

We asked the baby to move out of the photo, but just like the wallpaper, he’s stonewalling.
