Grecian Nightclub?

February 26th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Eileen sent us these photos of a home in Greece, New York. For sale $200,000 below comparable properties in the area because…its owner reportedly owned about 50 properties in a money-laundering scheme for drug sales. $10 million in drug sales from 2013-2014 were recorded in a ledger found at this particular property; 1 kilogram of cocaine = $36,000. High finance, for sure! Here’s a link to a new article.

The house looks like a nightclub with several dance floors.

Rapper’s Delight: Hip hop and go-go dancers in this room, complete with photo mural of New York City.

Bargain Basement

June 28th, 2016 · 3 Comments

A few readers have asked recently if there are basements in the Phoenix area.  Very few.  Some in the older homes built in the 1920s-1940s.  Maybe a few in the 1980s-1990s.  The ground is too hard here.  Not worth the money and time to dig or excavate a basement.

And then this Glendale, Arizona home popped up this morning; sold for $60,000.  A fixer-upper with no air conditioning.  With a hole in the floor.

Here’s your basement!

These Portland, Oregon house photos were sent by a reader.  Thank you.  The basement wet bar/pot den could use some help with the ceiling.

Half of the ceiling is exposed.  Careful you don’t get insulation in your drink.

This concludes the series of photos from a Grove City, Pennsylvania home, provided to us from an anonymous reader.  We looked at the ceilings and the walls.  Today we look at some of the rooms of the house.  But first a look at the stairs leading to the basement.

Groovin’ In Grove City

Thank you to our anonymous donor for this Grove City, Pennsylvania home’s photos.  In our first photo, the seller is sitting down, waiting for buyers.  He also has a rifle on display in case buyers dare offer less than the asking price.

At least there isn’t a silly pot rack hanging in the middle of the kitchen.  Thank you.

Some tidying up around this house would help a lot.

Unnecessary items should be put away.
