Short & Not Sweet

Short sale in Gilbert, Arizona.  Notice how the carpet was originally pink in color (where the bed used to be).  And notice the carpet torn up.  And the window “drapes.”

Oh, that’s why landlords charge a cleaning fee.

Tall weeds surrounding the patio = they likely never went outside.
