Just a little water leak to ruin your day.

Hey, Mr. Seller, how about fixing the problem before selling? Oh, wait, this is a short sale. That excuses the home owner from any responsibility, right?

We don’t have basements in Phoenix for easy storage, so some home sellers come up with alternative storage areas.

Short Sale In Glendale

October 25th, 2016 · 3 Comments

This Glendale, Arizona home could use a lot of help, starting in the bathroom.

161025a

Handyman special. Complete with nuts, bolts, and tools.

161025b

The toilet might be been here before.

161025c

The family room is used as an office.

161025e

The lamp (with no shade) rests comfortably on the stepstool.

The front of the oven door is missing in this cluttered kitchen.

161025f

Imagine the fireplace here.

161025g

Two TVs in this bedroom.

161025h

This bedroom is short on flooring. The house is being sold as a short sale, where the owners are asking the bank to forgive their debt in exchange for the owners maintaining the house in good condition.

161025i

Another well-maintained bathroom.

161025j

Newspaper window treatment.

161025k

There could be as many as seven TVs on the patio.

Great place to hang out and relax.

More TVs and more newspaper in the windows!

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.
