If these are the owners, they sure didn’t care about getting higher offers from buyers.  If these are renters, the seller should have kicked them out and repainted the house.

Before & After Fail

February 8th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This home in 2007 looks much better than it does in 2014.

Before Living Room.  This home had been updated in 2007 with new dual-pane windows, new air conditioner, new copper plumbing, new tile and carpet, fresh paint, and remodeled bathroom shower.  They tried selling it for $185,000 in 2007, but the real estate market was in a freefall then.  After lowering the price to $145,000 and getting no offers, they took it off the market.

After Living Room.  Vandalized and tagged with graffiti.  Purchased by an investor in 2014 for $42,000.

Exfoliating Body Scrub

January 24th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Hot new trend in skin care in 2014:  severe exfoliation with shards of glass.  Just break a window, leave the broken glass in the bathtub, add some bubble bath, and then roll around as dead skin cells are violently removed from your body.  The ultimate spa experience can be yours!
