    This is the reality of many neighborhoods in Phoenix. Almost like a subculture, you get areas like this in homes built from the 60’s to the 80’s. Then in the 90’s you start with the stucco culture track homes. I prefer our custom home neighborhood myself.

    All neighborhoods become ghettoes as they age. The middle class families with good values move to newer, more modern and spacious homes, and the people who live outside the law move into these affordable, aging, tiny ranches. It doesn’t matter whether they are custom built or built on spec by a builder. After a certain age, houses become delegated to the scrap pile. Yesterday’s mansions are today’s slums. Today’s mansions are tomorrows slums. All the substandard rooming houses once were Victorian mansions custom built for millionaires.

    Educate your buyers to look beyond people’s possessions and decor. As a buyer, I don’t care about family photos, clutter, or mops in buckets. I don’t care if the place smells like their big, wet dog, or their several cats, or even their tobacco smoke. I’m looking at room sizes and the flow of the place, and how it would configure to my life. All the clutter will go with them, smells can be aired out, and the buyers can start their new lives in the house they just bought.

    Lois, I agree. However, over 90% of buyers begin their home search on-line, before contacting a Realtor. Therefore, buyers tend to eliminate homes from any consideration based on photos. That’s why I stress de-cluttering so much on this blog. Sellers could miss out on many potential buyers.
