Media Niches

January 25th, 2016 · 1 Comment

It was a Phoenix thing to build entertainment/media niches so you could surround your TVs with collectibles and audio equipment.  Sometimes they are used as storage for supplies.

People don’t know what to do with them.

They were originally designed for those massive thick rear-projection TV sets.   Now what do you do with that big open space?

Ironing Out Some Details

October 29th, 2015 · No Comments

Time to take real estate photos of the house.  First stop, the living room.  Everything look okay?  Oh, wait.  There’s an ironing board.  Should we move it?  Nah.  No one will notice it.  [Wait until buyers come to visit the house and push the front door against the recliner chair.]

Before & After Family Photos

September 4th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Before.  When a million family photos are still on the wall.

too many dozens lots of family photos pictures displayed on a wall Mesa Arizona home house for sale

After.  From a different home, you get the idea of all the nail holes that must be patched.  Buyers know the amount of work and paint needed to repair a wall and don’t like it.  Why make buyers fix the holes?  Better to remove the photos, patch the holes, and repaint the wall before selling.
