One Love – Several Stains

June 17th, 2017 · 5 Comments

That is a soiled, dirty mattress. Gross. Not sure if Bob Marley has any love for it. Go, Steelers?

170617a

Sneakers/trainers were placed there to distract you from the stained mattress.

Indoor Swimming Pool

June 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers commented on yesterday’s dirty swimming pool post and said he’d like an indoor pool if he bought a house in Phoenix. Well, Felix, your wish has been granted! Here’s a home with an indoor pool! You weren’t specific enough about the size and condition and quality and installation.

170610a

The sellers should have cleared off the counter and sink in the kitchen before selling.

170610b

And cleared off the stove.

170610c

And cleared off the floor. Good grief.

170610d

This room could use some attention too. Perhaps by the person standing on the left with the Nike sneakers.

170610e

Hey, lazy bones, get up and help the lady clear out everything on the patio.

No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

Tan Your Hide In Mabelvale

June 4th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers, thank you, sent photos of a foreclosed home in Mabelvale, Arkansas, located near Little Rock and only one mile away from Bass Pro Shop on I-30. We did a little sleuthing and found photos when it was up for sale before the bank took it back.

They have a tanning bed in their bedroom! Along with a Sturgis (South Dakota) Black Hills Rally flag.

170604mabelvalear1

Many items on display in another bedroom including Valentine’s Day balloons.

170604mabelvalear2

Booze and more on display around the fireplace.

170604mabelvalear3

If we step back and shift to the left, we see the rest of the room.

170604mabelvalear4

The only overhead light in the kitchen needs a cover.

170604mabelvalear5

You have two options leaving the front porch: stairs or slide.

170604mabelvalear6

You can shoot hoops while jumping on the trampoline. And there are two giant TVs on the porch. The riding mower does not convey with the house.

170604mabelvalear7

These are the current photos sent by our reader. No more trampoline or TVs in front. Bummer.

170604mabelvalear8

The slide and the rider mower are gone too.

170604mabelvalear9

The front side of the house.

Clowning Around In Canada

May 21st, 2017 · 5 Comments

Thank you to two readers who sent this photos, M.L. and Jennifer. A house of clowns in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, not far from the town of Ontario. Enjoy!

170521brantfordontarioca1

The sellers collected thousands of clowns.

170521brantfordontarioca2

Everyone loves clowns.

170521brantfordontarioca3

Especially buyers.

Three Messy Living Rooms

May 20th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Messy living room. Good grief.

170520a

Help me understand. These homes are for sale. Are the sellers that clueless?

170520b

From a house in Florence, Arizona. The state prison in Florence is cleaner than this house.

Short On Staging

May 17th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Short sale home in Chandler, Arizona. A little de-cluttering would be nice.

170517a

More clutter here, so less clutter when selling please.

170517b

The view to the family room shows a lot of family photos on the wall.

170517c

Cluttered bathroom.

170517d

A vacuum near a bathtub is always handy.

170517e

Poor photography.

170517f

The plane crashed landed.

170517g

Let’s put the ladder away too.

170517h

How about fixing the patio ceiling?

170517i

And fix it here too.

170517j

And here.

170517k

Let’s tidy up the back yard too.
