Short & Not Sweet

Short sale in Gilbert, Arizona.  Notice how the carpet was originally pink in color (where the bed used to be).  And notice the carpet torn up.  And the window “drapes.”

Flooring Choices, Not Choice Flooring

October 17th, 2014 · 3 Comments

You only live once.  Go ahead and install laminate flooring at different directions in one room.

Or spend a weekend installing your own mosaic tile floor.  Bonus points for originality.

Throw in some random colored tiles to add excitement to the floor.

The ceiling’s so low, perhaps the seller cracked the drywall open with his head.

Or maybe the seller wants to show the insulation to buyers?

This home has no insulation.

There’s no hole, but…

Two dogs that have nothing to do with selling a house.

The dog is distracting you from the baseboards and the lady’s feet.

The dog is the center of attention.  Its owner is sitting to the left.
