This home was sold as a short sale.  Short on being tidy.

Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.

This San Diego, California home is only 978 square feet.  It sold recently for $655,000!  In this condition.  Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos.

What do we know about suggesting home staging and de-cluttering?  The house still sold despite this.

Imagine how much the house will sell for once renovated.  Would it get $1,000 per square foot?

We still recommend clearing off the clutter before selling.

Looks like it might have a basement apartment.  Must be a real treat when it rains.
