DJ equipment blocking the view of the fireplace. Just like a record needle, buyers might skip this house.

One of our readers sent us this photo of a Cape Girardeau, Missouri home. The fire adds warmth to the room.

Our reader Helen was intrigued by this unique fireplace in a Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada home.
Located in a basement rec room?
The kitchen looks 100% vintage. Late 1970s? Orange countertop, wallpaper accent, dark cabinets with buckle handles.

Found at a 1979 home. Moroccan-themed fireplace?

This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.
Notice how the refrigerator is missing in the photo above and is now seen on the far right side in the photo below.
Ugly, dirty cabinets. Dirty ceiling. Dirty kitchen.
As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain. Ugh.
In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.
At least they are patriotic.
There’s that knotted curtain! It makes a statement.
The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.
The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did. Just barely.
Dirty air conditioner vent. Dusty & cluttered bedroom.
The living room’s a real treat too.
The front of the house.
The back yard.

Imagine Santa Claus’ reaction when he exits the fireplace.
I hope Santa doesn’t need to use the bathroom.
Building permits for that room addition?
