So many people shopping today on Black Friday.  Shopping mall parking lots are completely filled.  Shoppers are forced to park on people’s front yards!

What else can you do?  Parking on the street is not an option?

Secured parking.

Dog gone it.

The bees’ knees.  And wings and legs too.  The listing said there was a “bee problem of Biblical proportion in the second bathroom.” I rushed over to the house to take these photos.

Absolutely crazy.

Unique swimming pool.  Cool or too weird?  Do you just sit in the pool?  Doesn’t seem very practical.  More art than functional?

Confusion About Parking

August 16th, 2012 · 4 Comments

With the heat in Phoenix, the brain sometimes gets fried a bit.  People get confused.  Sellers park their cars on front yards.

It’s just too hot to walk that extra 20 feet.  Or take down the Christmas lights.

He doesn’t want to block buyers from walking up the driveway.  Very considerate.

This seller doesn’t want buyers to walk up the path to the front door.

Another considerate seller.  His front porch light bulb is burned out, so if buyers visit at night, we’ll turn on his headlights for them.

This taxi driver needs to call a cab.  This particular house was sold as a short sale.  It went under contract September 9, 2011 and finally sold 10.5 months later on July 30, 2012.  Short, indeed.

No excuse.

How can a buyer really see and enjoy the beauty of a driveway if a vehicle is parked on it?  That’s why we parked it on the lawn.

It’s just easier being closer to the front door.

Don’t ask me to move it.  I’m too busy texting.

Tippecanoe & Tyler Too

February 5th, 2012 · 11 Comments

Tyler, Texas home in need of home staging.  Check out the bathroom with its many layers of drapes and shower curtains.  In the window:  vertical blinds plus lace curtain plus pink something.  At the tub:  plastic shower curtain plus blue drapes plus floral valance.  Got grout issues?  Use duct tape!

Hoarding Stage 1

January 17th, 2012 · 5 Comments

Did you see the new episode of Hoarders last night on A&E TV?  It’s titled “Mary/Annie” and it’s a doozie.  Truly disgusting bathroom.  Cockroaches.  Piles of filth.  Sad.

Hoarding starts with filling horizontal surfaces with stuff and then more stuff.  And then it spreads to the floors.

This Youngtown, Arizona home is up for sale.  Clutter has begun in the bonus room seen here.

The living room is filling up.

Another bonus room will be filled up soon if the house doesn’t sell.  The cats hang out here.

It must really smell in the bathroom for there to be skull & crossbones by the toilet!

Allergic To Concrete

There’s no other reason why these vehicles are parked on dirt or grass other than the tires are allergic to concrete.
