Involved Sellers

August 6th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Some sellers like to get involved with the sale of their home.  They want to be a part of every process.  Including real estate photography.

This seller is letting buyers know how relaxing his home is.  He’s taking a nap!

She has something on her hands, but it isn’t time.  Otherwise, she’d turn off the TV and remove the dirty cat tower.

Paralysis by indecision.  “Do I close the mailbox first or remove the chair or call the Dumpster company?”

Yesterday Was Flag Day

June 15th, 2014 · 3 Comments

June 14th is Flag Day.  A day to proudly display the American flag.  Here are some home sellers with their own versions of displaying the American flag.

Wrong!  The flag was hung backwards.  The blue field is supposed to be at the upper left.  [Phoenix]

Wrong!  The flag is backwards in this Tempe, Arizona home.

The blue field is in the upper left, so bonus points for that.  But using the American flag as a window curtain is not cool.  [Jonesboro, Arkansas]

These Wickenburg, Arizona sellers used the flag as a curtain, but at least it wasn’t a real flag.

It’s not backwards or over a window.  Thank you.  [Superior, Wisconsin]

What a difference a room makes.  The living room (with American flag) is neat and tidy in a Marshfield, Missouri home.

But when you get to the dining room, bam!  Clutter & family photos.  And an American flag.

Old Glory.  Long may it wave.  [Goodyear, Arizona]

Goldilocks & the Three Beds

March 18th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Once upon a time, a little girl named Goldilocks got lost in the Phoenix metro area.  She was very sleepy.  All she wanted was a quick nap.

She stopped by this Phoenix home, but, alas, the bed was too high.

She stopped by this Tempe, Arizona home, but, alas, the bed was too low.

But when she stopped at this Glendale, Arizona home, the bed was just right.  Sweet dreams, Goldilocks.  The End.
