Short sale home in Chandler, Arizona. A little de-cluttering would be nice.

Like Father, Like Sons

Father’s man cave. Notice the well-maintained leather couches.

Wall-to-wall stuff. Check out the “thou shall not whine” sign.

The father’s son’s room. Completely filled.

161104c

Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.

161104d

Dad’s bedroom. No surprise here.

161104e

This is not how we suggest staging a home when selling.

The father’s teenage son has taken over the guest house, with decorating help from dad.

The son will likely pass on his habits to his offspring.

Home Staging Needed In Virginia

August 21st, 2016 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Della who sent these photos of a Spring Grove, Virginia home.

It’s not a good sign when you see clog remover right next to the sink.  And there could be kids living in this house, so that becomes a safety issue too.

Hopefully that’s not a fly strip hanging from the light.

If they’re fishing for complements on home staging, they’ve come to the wrong blog.  What’s that saying?  Spare the rod, spoil the child?  More like, display the rods, spoil the sale.

Dirty walls.  You can see where pictures were removed!
