Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

June 29th, 2011 · 6 Comments

Sellers will be taking their unusual art with them when their houses sell, hopefully.  So why feature it so prominently in real estate photos?

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, wear no clothes.

Of all the paintings in the world, they chose one with three hats and three hands.  Our hats off to them?

A long time ago, Ruby the elephant at the Phoenix Zoo was famous for her abstract paintings.  When she displayed her art, was it called a trunk show?  This painting looks like one of Ruby’s.

Buyers Make Decisions Based On Curb Appeal

June 29th, 2011 · 4 Comments

As shallow as it sounds, buyers do judge a book by its cover.  Curb appeal determines if the buyer is going inside or skipping the visit.  This home looks like the wall was tagged with graffiti.  If the seller painted the entire wall, it might not look so scary to buyers.

No Rhyme Or Reason To Decorating

Interesting mix of decorating styles in a Peoria, Arizona living room.  It’s as if they picked up one item at a garage sale, another item the next month, etc.

Rusty Fireplace

June 28th, 2011 · 3 Comments

If something’s old, how long do you have to keep it?  Rusty fireplace/stove in Mesa, Arizona.  Will Rustoleum help this?  Too far gone?  Not worth saving?
