Messy short sale home.

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.
