Five Dirty Bathrooms

November 16th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Look at the dirt and hair on the vanity counter. Then look at the shower floor. Yuk.

Let’s start with the mirror and the shower door, thank you.

Don’t let the tile pattern distract you from the soap scum and rust.

A good cleaning is needed here.

Dirty bathroom in Vlissingen, The Netherlands. Their idea of “going Dutch” is different from ours.

The Nightmare Before Halloween

November 12th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Twas the night before Halloween and all through this house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse?

Now let’s take a look inside this Great Bend, Pennsylvania house. [Thank you to KG for sending us these photos]
Here we see a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray, plus sugary breakfast cereals.

Ashtray in the bathroom.

There is a child’s toilet in the living room! Dad is paralyzed with indecision: should he remove the toilet first or the Halloween balloon or unblock the front door?

And there’s the child! A little big for that training toilet. He seems sad. Perhaps because he’s not allow access to the balloons?

Party like it’s 1999. Or 1979.

Sorry, but that planking fad ended three years ago.

Band practice.

Like father like son. A drum set in the boy’s bedroom.

Cluttered kitchen.

Enclosed patio with dog and clutter.

A Journey Into Decay & Neglect

November 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

This poor old house was neglected for decades. Check out the ceiling. And the dirt on the ceiling fan!

Decades of grease!!

Decades of cigarette smoke?

Two bottles of bleach is not enough.

It’s picture perfect.

The swan turned back into an ugly duckling.

Shelving included with the sale.

Vintage drapery.

Outdoor kitchens with BBQs are very popular.

The swimming pool’s condition took a dive.

Plenty of parking on the front yard.

The headrests have been eaten away by the hot sun.

Keep Out

November 5th, 2017 · 1 Comment

These Hallstead, Pennsylvania sellers want buyers to keep out of the bedroom. [Thank you, KG, for sending these photos]

Pride of ownership.

No sign needed here. Buyers may be inclined to keep out of this bedroom too.

This bedroom has a lovely view out the window. You’ll have to trust us.

Creepy knives.

Happy birthday to all of us.

The living room. The chair has little booties.

The living room as seen from the front door. The sellers felt it was important to cover up the nice flooring with a rug.

The holiday canned food drive is off to a roaring success.
