Occupied, Not Vacant

Messy short sale home.

messy cluttered chaotic piles of stuff junk kitchen short sale Phoenix Arizona home house real estate photo

This home was occupied while it was up for sale.  This is not an abandoned home.  The sellers lived here like this.

It went up for sale in August.  Some brave buyer wrote an offer in September.  And then waited and waited and waited for the bank to approve the short sale.  It finally sold in May.  Eight months later.

Messy kitchen.  And they are selling their house in this condition.

This little piggy went to market.

Nice kitchen, too bad it’s cluttered.

This is one of those old houses where the washing machine is in the kitchen.  They use that space as a sloppy storage area now.  I want to tip the dining table so that all the junk will fall off.
