For All In Tents & Purposes

November 10th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Yes, a tent on the front yard. Right in front. Everyone can see it. The neighbors love it.

So much to offer.

The junk in front is an affront.

Side view of the front porch.

The living room.

We pan to the right to see more.

More to the right.

One more time to the right. And it just isn’t right.

A scary looking dog is guarding the precious belongings out back.

Bars on the windows.

Swimming pool included.

And they’ll throw in the BBQ grill too.

Cluttered Coolidge Cottage

November 9th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Lots of stuff piled on in this Coolidge, Arizona home.

Baskets, spinning wheel, pot rack, and more. Lots of visual distractions.

It’s hard to see the kitchen because of the pot rack.

TV’s on. At least the pet is not in the photo.

There are two fly swatters in the kitchen, a shovel in the living room, and now a broom in the bonus room.

I have that same desk in my home office. It’s at least 20 years old. From Office Max.

Another view of the office and bonus room.

At least the doggy pee pads don’t have urine or feces in this photo. But why take a photo of it?

Keep Out

November 5th, 2017 · 1 Comment

These Hallstead, Pennsylvania sellers want buyers to keep out of the bedroom. [Thank you, KG, for sending these photos]

Pride of ownership.

No sign needed here. Buyers may be inclined to keep out of this bedroom too.

This bedroom has a lovely view out the window. You’ll have to trust us.

Creepy knives.

Happy birthday to all of us.

The living room. The chair has little booties.

The living room as seen from the front door. The sellers felt it was important to cover up the nice flooring with a rug.

The holiday canned food drive is off to a roaring success.

Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2017 · 1 Comment

Happy Halloween! Watch out for giant spiders in Phoenix. “…It’ll be dark soon and they mostly come at night. Mostly.”

The beagle dog is scared of the witches.

Watch out for black cats.

Cowboy pumpkin. Or is that a country bumpkin pumpkin?

Trick or treat.

The joke(r)’s on you.

There was only one photo to promote the sale of this home. And this is the one photo the seller chose. You can see his arm on the left side.

Pot Racks Gotta Go

October 14th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Pot racks tend to dominate a real estate photo. It’s best to remove them when selling. Or at least the pots.

Odd placement of the pot rack.

A million canisters. Why so many? Flour, sugar, brown sugar, cookies. That’s four. Then what else?

Visually distracting.
