Home! It has a sign that reads “Home.” We weren’t sure. Now we know. The bigger question is: What’s that dirty rag doing on the floor? [Thank you, Michael, for sending us these photos of a San Diego, California home].
Of all the cookbooks to fake stage in a kitchen, they pick “Dump Cakes”??!?! There’s another view of the dirty rag.
Really nice home. Really nice. Too bad the kid is in the photo. If you’ve been looking at several homes in one day, how do you remember each home? “Oh, yeah, that’s the house with the Dump Cakes and the kid.”

Today would have been Michael Jackson’s 57th birthday.
The King of Pop lives on in Glendale, Arizona.
Yes, that’s a table fan! I’ve never seen one before. Hmmm. Interesting. Hope it’s high enough not to hit tall buyers. Hope it doesn’t wobble. Hope buyers don’t trip on its electric cord!

Our reader Tyson is not a fan of cutesy signs in homes. He sent us examples from a Queen Creek, Arizona home.
Home Is Where Our Heart Is!
You Are Our Sunshine!
Love Is All You Need!
It’s as if the sellers tried to copy new model home decorations. All the signs come across as overkill.

We have so much sun in Phoenix, you have to shovel the excess away. And dream of Christmas when it’s hot.

Were they stoned when they stoned this wall?
A door was sealed over?
If they didn’t like the paint color, they could have painted over it instead of peeling it off.
It looks like siding and paper for an exterior wall, but this is inside the house. Odd and ugly.

Why take this photo? Why include it in a real estate listing? Why not wait until the room renovation is complete and then take the photo of an empty room?
Why take a photo of a light bulb?
What happened here?

It’s pretty obvious, folks. You take the photo, look at it, if you see yourself in it, take another photo.
Is that a print film camera? Why are there buckets in the bathtub?
We see you. Can’t you see you?
Nice try, but we still see your arms and camera. Try again. What is on the wall below the sink?
Oh, lady, come on. Hire a professional photographer if you can’t figure it out.
Not only is a blurry photo not acceptable, you’re in the photo. Take another photo. Digital pictures are free. It won’t cost a penny to take another one.

Blanket, blanket, and another blanket. Perfect for staying warm in the freezing Phoenix summertime. Photography tip: best not to have a sofa take up 25% of the photo.
Blanket insurance policy against soiling the sofa in this house.

Short sale. Unbelievable. Is that a dog on top of the couch?
Time to take out the garbage.
Another bedroom. Is that a baby crib on the right?
Front of the house.
Out back, we see two dogs and a lot of junk.
Outdoor laundry with washer and dryer.
