What is your biggest pet peeve when you walk into a house?


I went to this home open in the hopes to buy a place once and the owners had these huge blow up photo's of themselves up all over the place. They were these nude sepia shots of them holding eachother and looking in to eachothers eyes and all that artistic crap. It was the biggest turn off. You just couldn't see past these photo's to visualise how you would use the spaces. I didnt have the heart to tell the real estate agent but im pretty sure he knew it was a problem and didnt have the heart to tell the sellers! i think the place is still on the market...

OK.... so just to clarify. You went to an open house and the place had nude photos of the current owners on the walls?

Pet peeve list is long!
-Clutter - maybe I'm obsessive compulsive, but too much 'stuff', every surface covered, I have to leave soon.
-Dirt - especially on top of clutter. If you are going to have objects d' art, dust them please!
-Greasy dirty handmarks around lightswitch plates, above/below door handles and kitchen drawer pulls - uuggh! This may be #1.
-Stained grout - so easy to clean and seal the grout.

- cheap flat wall paint, especially when it's all white or light-colored
- nasty bathroom showers, i.e. mildewed grout/sealant
- wallpaper
- white appliances
