It must be a popular decorating item.  We saw a similar statue in Amsterdam back in 2009.  Here’s the post.

Times are tough.  Sellers have to tighten their belts.  When they wear them, that is.

This bathroom features a dusting wand used for cars.  Maybe the seller has a sassy chassis?

For checking out stars or spying on neighbors?  Too bad this wasn’t from the same house as the first photo; then we could say it was an asteroid belt.

No Photo Left Behind

Some sellers insist on including every photo taken of their home.  No matter what quality.  Here are some examples.

Yes, these are all actual photos used to promote the sale of these homes.  Can you tell what this photo is about?

How about this one?

Spy camera?

How about we nuke this photo instead of including it?  This might not be the breast best photo to use.
