These Des Moines, Iowa sellers shop at WalMart. You should too.
They’re not the neatest sellers we’ve known.
This is the gift wrapping room!
Basket weave vinyl flooring.
Check out the pom poms on the curtains.
Mr. Seller, please repair the ceiling. Oh, and remove the mold in the corner too.

Interesting use of space in a Dutch home’s basement. The chest looks like a coffin! No home showings after sunset! There’s even a fish pond. The pond filter is that gray square box in the middle of the photo.
Invite your friends over to spend time in the basement grotto. Fun!

If you can make it safely down the rail-less stairs to this Philadelphia, Pennsylvania basement…
…you’ll see what possibilities exist down here.
So much potential. For radon gas, for mildew, etc.

Before Living Room. 1930s-1940s bungalow. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Was purchased in poor condition as a short sale for $39,900.
After Living Room. The wall to the kitchen was removed. Once the house was renovated, it sold for $97,000.
After Living Room. Here’s what buyers see when they enter the house. Buyers love open spaces and being able to see long distances.

After Bathroom. The size of the bathroom was doubled. Not sure where they found the extra space.
Before Bedroom One.
After Bedroom One. Because the walls are brick, it was difficult to add electric wiring through the walls. They had to add electric conduit along the back wall.
Before Bedroom Two.
After Bedroom Two. New windows. But no electric outlets on two walls.

You can spruce up any dingy basement by painting a decorative column on a wall. It elevates the basement to a whole different level. [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]

They tried to make the basement pretty by painting a dead tree and two sad cornstalks on the wall. They’re also growing their own penicillin. [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]

Things are looking up in Troy, New York?
Things are looking down in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?
And then looking up at another Philadelphia home?
And then down again at another Philly home?

Yesterday’s post with the bathroom with no walls was very revealing. Literally. Two of our readers found more exposed toilets.
Thank you, Orangeena, for spotting this toilet in a Cleveland, Ohio home. The toilet is in the dining room?? Convenient for Taco Bell night? No doors. No privacy. And right next to the stairs too!!
C.H. found this exposed toilet in Gretna, Nebraska. Probably a basement bathroom. It’s next to the laundry area. There’s a coffee can on the toilet tank. For cigarette butts?
And there’s yet another exposed toilet in the bedroom upstairs! Buyers will be flushed with excitement and the seller wiped out from all the showings.
