Roy G Biv Returns

December 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

It’s harder and harder to find a complete ROYGBIV rainbow set of carpets. Most home sellers are opting for earth tones in carpet colors or opting for tile or wood flooring. We’re stretching the color tints just a bit in order to showcase the full ROYGBIV range.

R for Red

O for Orange

Y for Yellow (orangy-yellow)

G for Green

B for Blue

I for Indigo (it’s as close as we found to dark blue)

V for Violet (well, lilac in this photo; please forgive us)

Carpet Baggers

November 21st, 2017 · 2 Comments

Time to bag this carpet and get new.

Note to sellers: when the carpet is torn, that is your last call to replace the carpet.

If you are going to keep the ugly carpet, at least stretch it and cut the ends.

At least these sellers were considerate enough to keep their infant away from the filthy carpet.

First thing you see when entering this Houston, Texas home is stained, dirty carpet. [Note: this photo has been kept on file since March 2017; it is not post-hurricane]

Camden Fixer-Upper

November 19th, 2017 · No Comments

Free TV on the side of this Camden, New Jersey home. But the kilo will cost you.

The sellers put out the red carpet treatment for buyers.

Gourmet kitchen.

Those built-in drawers are certainly handy.

Green wood paneling will be a hot new trend in 2018.

Tickled pink.

Cedar-lined closet to keep out moths?

Calgon, take me away (from Camden).

One House – Nine Different Floors

October 27th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Every room of this house has a different type of flooring.

The wood paneling absorbs the echo from the concrete floor.

Missing squares.

A lot more missing in the other bathroom.

All squares are present and accounted for.

Sponge paint. We haven’t seen that for quite some time.

The laundry room.

Wood flooring in the kitchen.

Vintage vinyl tiles with asbestos?

Hinges & Handles

September 10th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Overkill on the kitchen cabinet hinges and handles. Thank you to our reader Sarah for sending photos of this Laurel, Delaware home.

They need to replace the paper towel roll.

They also need to replace the toilet paper roll.

And replace those ugly, dusty couches.

Fresh paint will help here.

New windows and fresh paint here too.

Let’s Ensure the cat litter box is always clean for visiting buyers.

Furniture included with full price offer.

Vintage kitchen.

What were mattress companies thinking back in the day with that horrible urine-yellow color? Or maybe they were actually very clever!

Mirror, mirror, on the floor. Who’s the fairest house of all?

Wall to ceiling to wall wood paneling.

Some bleach and this bathroom could be cute.

No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.


Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?


We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.


We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.


Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.


Crack in the corner of the room.


We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.


And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.


Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.


Now let’s visit the kitchen.


Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.


Help wanted!


Old flooring.


Here’s a bedroom.


We turn to the right.


And to the right again.


Another bedroom.


And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.


We look to the right.


And to the right again, showing the stained wall.


We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.


Total rehab needed.
