Stuffed & Stuffed

Thank you, Rachel, for finding these photos.  I think we’re just as shocked as you are.

Stuffed animals on display.  Because that’s how you sell a house.  Aim for a specific type of buyer.  Alienate the others.

It’s a Kitchen By Definition

August 11th, 2013 · 2 Comments

This Perry, Florida room is functioning as a kitchen.  It has an oven/range, a coffee maker, a sink, a dishwasher, a microwave, and a toaster oven as a bonus.  But will it meet buyers’ expectations as a kitchen?
