How many cushions does it take to sell a house?

 

Being a keen Open House property-inspector, I’ve come to notice the multiple cushions that seem to be placed just-so on beds and couches and chairs for no real purpose other than to dress things up.

I’ve also noticed the same set of three narrow-necked vases arranged on the dining table, the same black and white throw casually draped over an armchair, the same fake wicker outdoor furniture, the vanilla-scented candles.

None of this subtlety for me. I went straight for the jugular when I renovated Riverbend's bathroom. And if that doesn't get the buyers in, I even throw in an indoor swimming pool for free. ☺
