Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends. When selling, it’s time to gather up family photos and put them away.

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.
Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.
Dad’s bedroom. No surprise here.
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.
What is that?!

This home prominently features a polar bear wall hanging. Plus a God’s eye yarn weaving (upper left); very popular in the 1970s.
Stacks and stacks of old VHS tapes plus towels and blankets.
Mush! Mush! Here come the sled dogs.
Please note the rifle in the middle of the photo.
Decades of collecting.
Floral wallpaper to cheer you up as you use the enema bag.
Free TV with purchase.
Don’t mind the dust. The seller certainly doesn’t.

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!
Two bottles of ketchup right next to Clorox bleach cleaner.

School’s out for summer! And the kids are showing up in real estate photos.
She’s showing off her home’s landscaping.
This girl is the Vanna White of real estate. She is showing the room to buyers.
Now she’s looking pensive.
This girl says, “Can I go out and play now? It’s my vacation.”

The upfronts are where the major television companies promote their new shows for the fall season. The following TVs are very upfront in these homes.
Will any of these homes for sale be cancelled because buyers did not like the TV being on?
The kid likes watching movies about sad trains. Choo choo goes boo hoo.
Because photos like this sell homes!
Let’s hope the fireplace doesn’t get too hot or else the TV will melt. [Thank you to our reader who sent this Los Lunas, New Mexico photo]

Which movie will take home the Oscar for Best Picture tomorrow?
The Big Short, a movie about the financial & real estate crisis? [I took this photo in a bank-owned house many years ago; sorry for the language]
Bridge of Spies?
Brooklyn? [This is as close as I could get to a Brooklyn photo]
The Revenant? [Leonardo got revenge on that bear!]
Spotlight? [That movie has at least four fans.]

Family photos and collectibles will require a lot of time to pack up when this home sells.
Not much room for guests to sit in the cluttered dining room.
Interesting juxtaposition between the Native American art and the Redskins football pillow. You might want to rethink that pillow, Mr. & Mrs. Seller.
More stuff upstairs.
The kid’s room is cluttered too, but at least somewhat organized.
