I have to admit. I am a big fan of purple. When the artist formally known as Prince came out with the album Purple Rain, I was an instant groupie. When my son fell in love with a big purple dinosaur, I was thrilled. The fact that our hometown Sacramento Kings are purple, fills my heart with joy! So……. when should the purple madness stop? Have you ever seen a Crayola crayon labeled “Potty purple”?   Neither have I.

I love it when people have a passion for something, but in the case of this central Roseville home, I would have preferred the love to stay in the seller’s heart instead of in the toilet. Buyers tend to shy away from bold, passionate plumbing. Lucky for this little commode, it was not alone. It came with matching tile, sink and bathtub to make sure the mood was set.

When considering your next remodel, don’t flush your money down a purple toilet. While it makes a great conversation piece, it may not be the best return on your investment.

“Homebuyer education is key,” said Barbara LeBrecht, chairwoman of the Realtors’ Home Opportunity Committee and a broker with Langdon’s HomeBuyer’s Assistance Corp. in Gold River.
