The seller added goop to the staircase risers.

161016avonct02

There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.

161016avonct03

The kitchen, we think.

161016avonct04

The breakfast room.

161016avonct05

More goop in the parlor. Even the piano was painted.

161016avonct06

Check out the ceiling.

161016avonct07

The bathroom.

161016avonct08

Another bathroom.

161016avonct13

At least the curtains aren’t knotted.

161016avonct10

A closer look.

161016avonct11

More goop on the door. There’s a lot of sanding required to remove the goop.

161016avonct14

Another look at the staircase.

161016avonct12

Let’s look at the bedroom now.

161016avonct09

Gauze for alarm?

161016avonct15

The window panes were painted.

161016avonct16

The dining room.

161016avonct17

Walls and ceilings were touched in every room.

161016avonct18

Gauze and effect. How would you remove the gauze and goop from the walls?

What & Why

October 3rd, 2016 · No Comments

A few curious real estate photos seen recently…
An air vent grille lying upside down on the floor. Because? And why take a photo of it?

161003a

This real estate photo appears to be a leaky faucet, once hidden behind a wall and now exposed?

161003b

And then this close-up photo of a bathtub in a Houston, Texas home. Because buyers don’t want to see the entire tub?
