There is no safety barrier to this Des Moines, Iowa basement. Be very careful. Yes, on second look, that is a trap door that is opened to the left. But it’s still a safety hazard if you leave the door up while you’re in the basement.

These sellers were super dirty. Disgusting floor of a bedroom. You can see the outline of a dresser and a bed. Did they ever wash their feet or wipe their shoes? Is that dog feces?
Is doesn’t look any better from a distance.
Another filthy bedroom.
And a third dirty bedroom. How many years (decades?) does it take to reach that level?
No surprise that the bathroom is dirty too.
The kitchen’s not so bad. Although the ceiling and refrigerator door handles could use some cleaning.
That’s really old carpet in the living room. So if it doesn’t have a pathway of filth, why are the bedrooms so nasty?
The house has roof leak issues too.
This is the back of the house.
There’s a detached workshop too.
The roof of the workshop has separated from the walls.
Wires were cut to the electric service panel.

Up those stairs to your new home. Ice storm. No railing. Oops! Broken leg and arm and back and neck. [Charleston, South Carolina]

Check out that light! Octopus gone wild!
Truly one of a kind.

You never know when you’ll need a full-size table in your bedroom.
It serves as a wedding chapel on weekends?
This kitchen was considered modern in its day.
Beanbag chairs are included.
More visual distractions in this room. Thank you, Ken, for sending the photos.

Uh, there’s a door on the 2nd floor that leads to a corrugated metal porch roof. Safe? Hopefully, these Hickory, North Carolina sellers aren’t advertising it as a balcony.

Vandalized electric panel.
Do-it-yourself panel cover made of clear plastic. Up to code?

Four gas tanks near a Panama City, Florida shed. Seems a bit dangerous. But where else are you gonna store them? Maybe not include a photo of them?

These Apache Junction, Arizona sellers are giving buyers the moon! Or they are merely commenting on the state of real estate today; everyone got bent over.
Looks like a skunk too. Are the sellers from Ohio?

The UglyHousePhotos Awards for Worst Stairs go to:
5th Place – Ithaca, New York. Does look like fresh wood on the railing, but the ugly orange carpet and dirty walls helped it reach the top 5.
4th Place – Phoenix. Angry foreclosed seller got mad at the railing. Hardly seemed properly secured to begin with.
3rd Place – Phoenix. This dirty, ugly staircase was not photoshopped; the sellers did a poor job of painting close to the carpet. Puke green and bubble gum pink don’t mix well.
2nd Place – Mesa, Arizona. The sellers created their own basement and staircase. Note how the stairs aren’t spaced evenly. One of the stairs is missing at the bottom. Creepy and unsafe. [This is the same home that got 7th Place Worst Basement yesterday.]
1st Place – Boston, Massachusetts. They used pegboard for the kick boards! No railing = unsafe!!!

Very basic strips of wood placed in a lattice formation around the front porch. A first glance I thought it was cheap, but on further looks it seems to have an interesting mid-century modern feel. I kinda like it.
