Full House

July 23rd, 2017 · 7 Comments

Thank you to our reader Helen for finding this packed-to-the-gills home in Richmond, Texas. Here we see the sellers posing for the photo while their child hides under the table.

Another view of the missus and her million bed pillows.

170723richmondtx02

Last Chance To Run!! Creepy Halloween masks, cow skulls, a child hanging upside down, and a lot of visual distractions.

170723richmondtx03

We apologize for the nudity, but someone “stole” her clothes.

170723richmondtx04

Too bad buyers can’t fully appreciate the features of this home. This room has nice flooring, a tall vaulted ceiling, and a big window.

170723richmondtx05

Sorry again for the nudity.

170723richmondtx06

Again, too bad it’s hard to appreciate the giant picture window and the nice fireplace.

170723richmondtx07

Here’s another view of this room.

170723richmondtx14

All that clutter would make me want to climb the walls too.

170723richmondtx08

The maid will be serving dinner in five minutes.

170723richmondtx09

Howdy, Pardner. Hope you like pillows.

170723richmondtx10

Wonderful life. Fun.

170723richmondtx11

He’s counting all of the overhead lights.

170723richmondtx12

It’s Christmas year ’round.

170723richmondtx13

The butler is not amused. Neither is the dog.

170723richmondtx15

Shoes are lined up on the stairs.

170723richmondtx16

Beware of pickpockets and loose women.

170723richmondtx17

Be nice or leave. Or the maid will give you the “brush” off.

170723richmondtx18

He’s waiting to join you in the shower.

170723richmondtx19

The back yard of this property reaches a canal. It’s a lovely shade of brown. When it rains, the cow urine & poop drains into the canal.

No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

Two Washers & Three Dryers

Their ship has sailed.

Elvis left the building after seeing all this clutter.

Their autumn decorations are out.  Year ’round.

We’re grateful it’s not knotted.

A place to tinker inside.

Family photos, mismatched floor tile, a cat, Southwest “art”, & more.

TV’s on!

Harvest gold refrigerator with water & ice maker.  That was top of the line back in the 1970s!

Two washing machines & three dryers.  And lots of junk.

cluttered back yard vintage harvest gold refrigerator two washers washing machines three dryers Phoenix Arizona home house for sale photo

Looking to the left, we see…more junk.  Over 50 used tires!  They might need them someday, you know.  Bad roof too.

The rugs add a touch of elegance to the back yard.

All this can be yours, if the price is right.

Over 36 Cups Per Day

That’s a lot of coffee mugs.  And lots of visual clutter in this home.

No shot glass collection?

Pink Parfait

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

Pretty in pink.

Fish Fry

A new trend we’re seeing in Phoenix:  placing a fish tank or aquarium or terrarium in front of a fireplace.

This house has two tanks by the fireplace!  And two barbells!

Got a tree trunk you can’t get rid of before selling your house?  Just stick some plastic flowers on it and leave it!  Buyers will love it.  [Prescott Valley, Arizona]
