Maybe these Phoenix sellers have the right idea.  Remove the kitchen cabinet doors so you can see what you have!  Brilliant.

Ten Minutes & 3 Boxes

July 18th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Please let us tidy up this Mesa, Arizona home.  We’d only need ten minutes and some empty boxes.  You can time us.  1, 2, 3, go!  Remove the prescription bottle.  Remove everything on the kitchen counters.  Remove everything off the front, side, and top of the refrigerator.  And then remove all of the family photos in the next room.  Done!  Total cost: $0.  Benefit to the seller:  more buyers interested in seeing the home and higher offers.

Too much stuff on the refrigerator.  It’s visually distracting.  We’ll deal with the cow collection later.

Oh, good grief.  Christmas was on full display back in October and earlier in this Peoria, Arizona home.  All I want for Christmas are home stagers!

Since the refrigerator doors were completely covered with stuff, the seller had to start taping things to the cabinet doors.

New Season of Hoarding: Buried Alive Started Last Week

November 6th, 2013 · 4 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.

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.
