No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

Short On Staging

May 17th, 2017 · 5 Comments

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

170517a

More clutter here, so less clutter when selling please.

170517b

The view to the family room shows a lot of family photos on the wall.

170517c

Cluttered bathroom.

170517d

A vacuum near a bathtub is always handy.

170517e

Poor photography.

170517f

The plane crashed landed.

170517g

Let’s put the ladder away too.

170517h

How about fixing the patio ceiling?

170517i

And fix it here too.

170517j

And here.

170517k

Let’s tidy up the back yard too.

Like Father, Like Sons

November 4th, 2016 · 2 Comments

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

161104a

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

161104b

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.

161104f

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

161104g

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

161104h

What is that?!
