It’s baby chickens!!  With a short sale, you never want to count your chickens before they’re hatched.  The bank has to approve the offer.

Over in the family room, it looks like the sellers have security cameras set up.  In case someone dares to steal their stuff.

Snake!

May 29th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Imagine visiting this Lyman, South Carolina home and seeing a snake on the bed!!  Would you pee your pants?  Before you realized it was a fake snake?  We hope it’s fake.  On the other hand, why would the seller put a fake snake on the bed?  To scare away what?
