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?

These sellers gave up and did nothing.

This seller was determined to fill every nook and cranny.

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.]
