Yards Need Help

October 13th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Free firewood. Plus free everything else.

They at least raked the dirt yard but neglected to remove the dead vine.

Weed you like to clear up your back yard before selling, Mr. Seller?

Let’s Do the Twist

September 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

At least they’re not knotted. There was a time when cabana curtains were very popular in the Phoenix area, to give a resort feel to a back patio. However, the reality was that it’s very dusty and sunny in Phoenix. The curtains got dirty, they stained easily, and the color faded unevenly.

Cluttered covered patio.

This one’s worse.

But the prize goes to this one.

Y Ask Y

Most buyers would love a soaking tub. How about this one? It’s from a Goodyear, Arizona home being sold as a short sale.

Not sure why someone would need four pair of scissors at the ready.

The kid did pick up his room. Now to shampoo the carpet.

Cluttered garage. [The photo was blurry]

Above the covered patio is a sundeck! See the table up there?

Storage shed included.

Concrete blocks and scrap wood included too.

Two TV sets and a vacuum cleaner also included.

The owners were too tired to clean up the back yard.

This house could be yours, in six months when the bank approves the short sale.

It features a spacious master bedroom with custom window drapes. The sellers are getting ready to hang one of those trendy barn door sliders.


A bonus room off of the master offers endless possibilities.


A sunny and cheerful bathroom.


The kitchen is so big, it takes up TWO rooms.


The back of the house features an enclosed patio. With all that extra plywood, you can invite friends over to play board games.

Flag Day

June 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Today is Flag Day when we honor the American flag. Except for these three home sellers who display their flags incorrectly. The blue field should always be in the top left.


Dog-gone-it! Another flag fail.

Indoor Swimming Pool

June 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers commented on yesterday’s dirty swimming pool post and said he’d like an indoor pool if he bought a house in Phoenix. Well, Felix, your wish has been granted! Here’s a home with an indoor pool! You weren’t specific enough about the size and condition and quality and installation.


The sellers should have cleared off the counter and sink in the kitchen before selling.


And cleared off the stove.


And cleared off the floor. Good grief.


This room could use some attention too. Perhaps by the person standing on the left with the Nike sneakers.


Hey, lazy bones, get up and help the lady clear out everything on the patio.

A Clean Sweep

April 11th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Lots of dead leaves plus a tumbleweed for good measure. The sellers didn’t bother to rake and sweep the patio.
