Here’s a pseudo-beehive fireplace. That’s wallpaper, not faux painting; the pattern repeats.

Two fireplaces in this house. Check out the free-standing metal one on the left.

You can see the electric outlets in the cubby holes.  The fireplace is probably fake.  If not, would you want the fire’s heat rising up on the TV?

Dirty Driveways

January 6th, 2016 · 4 Comments

Oil-stained driveway.

In case buyers didn’t notice the big stain, the seller provided a second photo showing more stains.

Buyers have to walk past the oil stain to get to the front door.  Would it make sense to remove the stain before selling the house?

This photo tells buyers that the sellers have too much stuff in their garage, causing them to park outside.  And it tells them the sellers don’t take care of their cars.  Do they take care of their house the same way?

First impressions at the curb.  Not a good start.
