Here’s a home that was purchased in 1993. The owner sold it to his son in 2001 for $68,000. The son refinanced the house in 2010 for $211,000. But now the house sold as a short sale for $92,000. Hmmm. Housing prices in Phoenix were at their lowest levels in 2010 and 2011. Home prices have gone up considerably since 2010. If the house appraised for $211,000 in 2010, surely it is worth at least that in 2014. Thus, there wouldn’t be a need to sell as a short sale, especially at $92,000. Let’s take a look inside and see where the $211,000 went.
We are welcomed at the front door by a dog, a person, and clutter.
The living room seems to be filled with sci-fi movie toy figurines, plates, and toy cars. And boxes.
The dining room is loaded with dolls, er, fantasy figurines. And more boxes. That’s quite a collection.
Oh, look. More toys.
He planned to fill these shelves as well.
So far, we haven’t seen any improvements to the house. Here’s a bedroom filled with lots of clothes and stuff.
Another messy bedroom. This one features a trio of ships and several Dawn posters.
Was money spent remodeling the kitchen? No. Those are original cabinets.
With a short sale, the owner has to prove that they have a financial hardship. Aren’t you curious to see the reason he gave the bank? “I was toying around with some investments but plans got shelved.”
The right Tidy Cat bin is labeled “Dog.” Do humans use the other two bins?
He attached a shovel and a rake to the outside wall. He’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fan too.

“Mommy, do you want my drumstick?”
Graffiti and vandalism in a Mesa, Arizona home. Is that one of the members of ZZ Top?
There’s flooring on top of flooring.
And now the walls are damaged too.
This was the shower of the other bathroom. They stole the bathtub!

After Kitchen in 2013. An investor bought this damaged home for $93,000.

Buckeye, Arizona home. And it’s a short sale. No surprise.
Will buyers jump up and down and blow bubbles of joy when they see this home?
Here we see the American flag disrespectfully used as a table cloth, with a jack-o-lantern on top of it.
Oh, hi, Dora. Would you please tell the sellers to clean up their home before selling? Thank you.
You’re sure to enjoy the relaxing master suite.

Owned by the same family since 1993. But they refinanced for $180,000 in 2005. Perhaps to remodel the home?
The house went into foreclosure. The bank sold it recently in this condition for $50,500.
We’re not seeing any renovations so far.
None of the $180,000 was spent in the kitchen.
Or in the bathroom.
The bank disclosed to buyers that repairs are needed to the room addition. Building permits probably needed too.
The bank also said the house has termites and roof problems.
The investor buyer could spend $50,000 and really fix up the place. Too bad the previous owners didn’t.
