Damaged Ceilings

April 27th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Perhaps the house isn’t quite ready to sell yet.

170427a

This one too.

170427b

They can’t figure out why no one is coming to see their house. And they keep getting low-ball offers from investors.

170427c

These sellers at least made an effort to patch the hole.

170427d

The room now has a vaulted ceiling?

Bathroom Photography Fail

April 26th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Bad real estate photography of a bathroom.

170426a

A slight improvement but still bad.

170426b

Getting better but still not acceptable.

170426c

Sigh. You would assume a photography with a tripod would know better.

Miserable looking dog in a kitchen.

170425a

He does not look happy.

170425b

Maybe he’s mad that his owners are selling the house?

170425c

He’s literally being pug-nacious.

Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos of a San Diego, California home. Built in 1956.

Imagine this space without the seller’s belongings. Wow.

170423sandiegoca02

Fresh like a daisy.

170423sandiegoca03

Check out the oven. Vintage 1956.

170423sandiegoca04

Indoor pool! Too bad it was neglected.

170423sandiegoca05

Could be a really cool space.

170423sandiegoca06

Vintage sink and bathroom.

170423sandiegoca07

Tudor style home.

170423sandiegoca08

The front landscaping could use some help.

170423sandiegoca09

Great potential here.

Burnt Grass

April 21st, 2017 · No Comments

A winter lawn (lush green rye grass) makes a Phoenix-area home look pretty. Dog urine, however, will kill rye grass.
