Beer Garage

May 18th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Every visiting buyer gets a free case of Heineken beer!  Please note, however, that the beer is stored in the seller’s garage which gets very very hot in Arizona.  Warm beer, cold heart?

Broken Water Heater?

February 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Water appears to be flowing out of the garage and down the driveway.  What’s going on?

I stopped by one of my vacant listings a few years ago and saw this same thing.  The water heater had cracked and water kept filling up and flowing out of the tank.  And…kept heating the water, which created a lot of steam and moisture in the garage.  Luckily I discovered it shortly after it happened.  The fuse was turned off, the garage door was opened, the water swept out, and the home warranty company was called right away.  Could have been a disaster with mold & mildew arriving in a day or two if undiscovered.  From then on, I suggest my clients turn off their water heaters in vacant homes.

Most sellers would rake the leaves before having real estate photos taken.  Not this one.

We are not picking on this Carefree, Arizona house.  Just thought you’d get a kick out of seeing these fancy sports cars.  How many of these can you identify?  [click on photos to expand]

How about these?

This is a 5,576 square foot home on 1.13 acres that is located in SkyRanch in Carefree.  It sold recently for $1.25 million.  In addition to the huge garage you just saw, there is a 54′ x 51′ hangar.  Yes, you can park a plane in your hangar.

Oh, My In Omaha

Thank you, C.H., for sending us these photos of an Omaha, Nebraska home.  It needs a little help.  Maybe a new roof, a new ceiling, and a new wall?

Good golly, Miss Molly.  What happened in the garage?

Milk crate bookshelf.  Did you have that in your dorm room or apartment as a young adult?  Cinder blocks were used a lot in Arizona.
