Soft Parking

June 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

I see a whole lotta concrete for parking.  They must have preferred softer ground instead.

It’s hot in Phoenix, so many people park cars in the shade.  Yet for a real estate promotional photo, you’d think…

Please remove your vehicles from your front yard when selling.

And from the driveway as well.  Thank you.

Move Your Vehicles Please

Was it necessary to park your car on the front yard when the driveway and street are available?

Used car lot?  You can’t see the house.

This is a better angle, but…

“Mom, will you please move your car so I can play basketball?”  “Only after you take down the Christmas lights!”

The only photo provided for this home.  At least the basketball hoop isn’t located in a tree like the previous house.

Four-wheelin’!!

The cobblestone driveway is too rough on his car’s tires, so he parks it on the soft dirt.

Not acceptable.

Car in front.  Please move it aside.

Not Meant For Parking

August 28th, 2013 · 4 Comments

Please do not park on the front lawn when selling your home.

It’s not an attractive look.

They did park on the driveway technically, but really?

These sellers get a pass.  When it’s super hot in Phoenix, you’re allowed to park your car in the shade no matter where.

It’s so hot in Phoenix, he was afraid the tires would melt on the hot concrete.

Any possibility of moving the trucks out of the front yard before we take the real estate photo?

Here’s a good example of what we mean.

They also included this photo.  The house looks much better with an empty driveway.

It would appear these sellers frequently park cars on the front yard.

Park Somewhere Else Please

There’s a driveway on the left and a driveway on the right.  Average them both and you park in the middle.

That driveway has plenty of room for both vehicles plus more.  Hint, hint.

When it does rain, I’ll bet those tire ruts fill up with water.

Technically, it’s kinda a paved surface, so it’s probably not a zoning violation in Phoenix.  But moving both vehicles away would allow buyers to see the front of the house.  Just saying.

They were unloading cases of soda pop?

Is it a used car lot or a home for sale?

Driveway Parking Not Allowed

March 27th, 2013 · No Comments

These three sellers heard that before real estate photos are taken, they should move their cars off the driveway.

The cars are off the driveway.  Perhaps the photographer should have been more specific.

See?  It’s not on the driveway.

Parking Options

February 23rd, 2013 · No Comments

When the street and driveway are available, choose the front yard instead!

Dirt is softer than concrete.

There’s no driveway on this side of the lot, that’s why.

Parking this way helps with the satellite signal?

I’ve Been Neglected & Ignored

My owners haven’t taken care of me.

They never seem to wash their hands or their dog.  This is my front door.

Thank goodness for the gap at the front door.  It lets in fresh air.

My kitchen is both beat up and beat down.

The edge of the kitchen cabinet.  I have termites!!  Long-term termites.  Like many, many years of termites.  My owners ignored the signs.
