She could use the Trader Joe’s bag to hold the clutter.  And then we’ll discuss the window blinds.

They spent good money on the sofa, so it had better last a long time.

Too Cluttered For Buyers

April 8th, 2015 · No Comments

These five family rooms need help with home staging.  They’re too visually distracting for buyers.

The sellers are hoping the toys will distract you from seeing the bent ceiling fan blade.

Does everything need to be on display?  Stop clowning around.

At least the TV is turned off.

Happy 61st Anniversary To the Wallace & Ladmo Show

April 1st, 2015 · 3 Comments

The Wallace & Ladmo Show was a local morning TV show for the Phoenix area targeted to children.  It’s first day on the air was April 1, 1954.  The last day aired was December 31, 1989.  35 years!  I attended a recording in the 1970s with my cub scout troop.  We were thrilled because you got a bag of goodies.

Here’s a Phoenix home for sale that has a photo of the Wallace & Ladmo Show cast!  Fun.

Another quality short sale!

The owners are hoping the bank will let them sell it for less than what they owe.

Therefore, you would think the sellers would present their home in the best possible way.

After all, they are asking a huge favor from their bank.

Santa’s Reindeer Dasher

Looks like someone dashed out of this Mesa, Arizona home in hurry.  They left the TV behind.

Dine and dash?

Oh, that’s why landlords charge a cleaning fee.

Tall weeds surrounding the patio = they likely never went outside.
