The patio is wet and filled with toys.

This Buckeye, Arizona seller sure has a lot of stuff.
That’s a lot of items.
So many visual distractions.
It’s hard to appreciate the home’s features.
It’s just as bad outside.
It will take a long time to pack it all up.
Buyers can’t see the pool clearly, but they can see three BBQ grills.

It’s almost Halloween. You go on ahead and check out the creepy storage room with the sharp rusty saw just waiting to drop on your head. And then the maniac will hack you with the scythe for good measure.

Oh, hi, Elmo. Are you having fun?
No surprise, this is a short sale.
To qualify for a short sale, you must have a hardship. Being messy is not a hardship.
First impressions are formed at the front entrance.

Seeing how the sellers aren’t removing the lumber and junk from their patio before & during selling, we’ll assume they’ll leave it for the buyer.

After Master Bedroom. The house was then flipped for $125,000. Sometimes vacant is better than furnished.

The box reads, “Look what you got!” We’re definitely seeing what these sellers “got.” And it’s a lot of stuff. Is that a Cabbage Patch doll?
The dining room features dog food bags, old carpet, and dusty ceiling fan blades.
The bathroom floor is uplifting.
Gently used over the decades.
Another cluttered bedroom. The bag reads, “Last Chance,” as in last chance to impress buyers.
It’s not a bedroom closet. It’s the bathroom shower with clothes on hangers on hangers.
The kitchen. The pot boiled dry.
Original casement windows showing a cluttered patio.
The view from the other side.

Two days’ ago we shared photos of a back yard cantina. We found another one! In Apache Junction, Arizona. This one has a full-sized refrigerator (to hold lots of beers). And a ramada festooned with palm fronds! Party on!

Someone won two big trophies. They weren’t for home staging.
Nooooo!! Knotted curtains!!! Nooooo!!
Four more trophies. TV’s on! Prescription bottles on display. More family photos.
Now we move over to the kitchen where we see two refrigerators. And more prescription bottles within reach of children.
There’s a kid looking in the window! A peeping tom! Maybe he can help tidy up this house.
No wonder this kitchen is cluttered; there’s only a few upper cabinets.
There’s a 2nd washing machine out on the cluttered back patio and two dryers.
There’s refrigerator #3. In the full sun. And a puppy in a cage. Oh, and at least 5 bicycles.
Five scrubby pads.
Pringles potato chips make for a great midnight snack. More prescription bottles with easy access. “Mommy, your Oxycontin pills are fun!”
I see baseball hats on the back of the door.
The hangers are every which way.
