The seller is proud of this bedroom.
The seller is proud of this bedroom.
The neighbors appreciated this seller’s efforts in making his home look good.
The clutter out front (and inside) helped lower home prices in the neighborhood.
The house sold in this condition for $25,000.
Yes, someone was living there at the time.
The seller is home.
Another cluttered room.
How much more money could the home sell for if the house was tidied up?
This delightful home in Penfield, New York was discovered by one of our readers. We are eternally grateful.
Take it all in. There’s lots to see. [Click on the photos to expand]
Let’s start with the Raggedy Ann theme room. Hundreds of dolls. Plus a mannequin.
Grinch Who Stole Christmas mannequin! Classic. Plus Cabbage Patch dolls, Christmas dolls, and many more dolls.
Doll clothes. Halloween theme dolls. More dolls. Take notice of the mannequin in the foreground. We’ll explain in the next photo.
The mannequin is supposed to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. See her ruby slippers?! There’s also a collection of jugs on each stair riser. We’ll see more jugs on another staircase later.
A bedroom filled with stuffed animals, jewelry, quilts, and more. Now imagine this house totally empty. The rafters in the ceiling. The hardwood floors. The vaulted ceilings. This house is really nice.
There’s a lovely lady mannequin holding undergarments. Notice the E.T. doll in the basket of toilet paper. That’s because he visited Uranus? There’s another E.T. doll on the shelf to the right.
Another view of the bathroom. We have proof that someone actually used the bathtub (photo on wall). There’s a bedpan on the wall too. And the world’s smallest plunger that’s guaranteed to get your hands wet.
The kitchen has a sign that reads, “Two Choices: 1. Take it 2. Leave it” There’s a ghost hanging on the lamp (left side). A black cat (right side).
Another view of the kitchen. So much to see. The house was built in 1847. This kitchen would be so cool once empty.
The dining room is managed by two mannequins.
We’re halfway through the photos. Much more to see. Another mannequin! And wearing the latest fashion. Halloween decor. More jugs. More clutter.
Looking to the side, we see another mannequin!
This is the Ladies Room, filled with pink flourishes. Pink Christmas tree ornaments. Tea is served at 4.
Looks like another tea set in another room. And lots of dolls. And another mannequin, this time holding a parasol. Hats and clothes.
The other side of this room. A mannequin sitting in a chair. More dolls. Christmas trees. Now imagine this room empty. The beautiful wood floors. The fireplace. The tin plate ceiling and crown molding.
Another room filled with stuff.
The kitchen. No shortage of cups here.
Halloween decorations out front.
Scary Halloween decorations.
And no home is complete without a gnome.

HUD home in Casa Grande, purchased for $37,000 in this condition.
The house was vandalized. Handprints in the dining room.
Another dining room?
Juleanna was here in 2009.
In memory of Grandma One.
The back of the house.
The sign in the upper left corner reads, “Don’t Be Afraid.” Like don’t be afraid to put things away before selling your New River, Arizona home?
Visual clutter is not appealing.
This room is probably warm and cozy looking, but the photo’s angle makes it look something different.
Something fishy is going on here.
Their dog is now a real estate star.
Let’s see him from a different angle.
And from yet another angle! Notice the shoes on the dresser and the gun safe in the closet.
Oh, look, another photo of the dog! Unless the dog is included in the sale of the home, why take its picture?
Here’s a 2,600 square foot home in Buckeye, Arizona.
It was originally listed for $399,000 in February 2010. Yes, 2010. 3 1/2 years ago.
It finally sold in October 2013 for $156,000. 1,199 days on the market.
Do you think the new owner will keep the original kitchen?
This is a bedroom.
Master bedroom suite in Apache Junction, Arizona. A real treat.
Time in New England took me away to long rocky beaches and you by the bay.
[actually, Glendale, Arizona]
There are a lot of pieces of junk to pick up in this house.
More pieces in the bedroom.
It’s a short sale. The sellers wanted the house to look good for buyers.
Oh, look. Wall damage.
More pieces to pick up.
High quality sponge paint in the bathroom.
Blurry photo. Might be the shower faucet.
Blurry photo of a hole in the ceiling.
And more pieces to pick up.
The other bathroom was damaged too. Thanks.
