Short Sale Fixer-Upper

July 24th, 2014 · No Comments

Short sales accounted for only 3.5% of all sold listings in the Phoenix metro area in June 2014, the lowest since June 2008.  Thank goodness.  They are typically neglected homes.  Here’s a recent example.  And this wasn’t someone who bought at the height of the market.  This home was purchased for $92,000 in 2001 with no refinancing.  It sold for less due to the condition.

Cracked toilet tank.  How does that happen?  Mildew on the shower grout.

More problems in the bathtub.

A bedroom.

There are a variety of items on display out front.  The wheelbarrow distracts you from the broken window.

The previous photo was better than this one.  And that’s no bull.

Government officials recently relocated their bureau to the middle of a living room in a Phoenix home.

But after complaints of cramped quarters, they moved it to the back yard of a Glendale, Arizona residence.

It Made an Impression

This Phoenix home made an impression on our reader Jayne, but not a good impression.  This is the master bedroom, for example.

The sellers trimmed their olive tree.  They lion-tailed the branches.  Also known as lollipopping.  It’s a topiary terror.

Or it’s a spaceship on the bottom section with aliens waving around.  Thank you, Jayne!

Pink Parfait

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

One of our readers, Mario, sent us these photos.  The city is unknown.  The bathroom did not impress Mario.

He wasn’t thrilled by the brick wall in the living room.

A Real Treat To Clean

July 21st, 2014 · 2 Comments

What do you think of this remodeled shower?  They spent a lot of time installing the stone wall.  Must be tons of fun to clean around the stones & grout: soap scum, mildew, hard water deposits, etc.  You can already see the discoloration.

So much potential.  For radon gas, for mildew, etc.
