This home was sold as a short sale. Short on being tidy.
Clutter free kitchen? No dice.
Short on light.
More clutter and what-not in this room.
Wait. If that’s the shower, why is the toilet paper holder in the shower area? Maybe this is an old house that only has a bathtub and no shower?
There’s a skull on the patio shelf.

Same goes for you too, buddy. Fix it.

Let’s back out of this cluttered bedroom.
Into another cluttered bedroom.
And another one.
The drawer front is missing.
The kid is not peeing. He’s looking at something. What is it?
It’s baby chickens!! With a short sale, you never want to count your chickens before they’re hatched. The bank has to approve the offer.

Back in the day, before air conditioning, Arizonans survived the summer heat by sleeping outdoors on sleeping porches. Sometimes they placed wet sheets in open windows or on porches to create cooler air. Sometimes, as we see at this Wickenburg, Arizona home, they crack holes in the window panes to let air to flow in.
