See-Through Storage Shed

December 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

So they’ve secured their items in a storage shed on their patio. But isn’t the point of a shed to keep the items hidden from view? Now they have a cluttered patio with a giant cage.

Possibilities

November 13th, 2017 · No Comments

Don’t judge a book by its cover just yet. It could look better inside.

Well…maybe not inside either. The oven door is missing.

The vinyl floor tiles are a’peeling.

The young man does not seem bothered that the bedroom could use some tidying up.

At least the flooring is nicer here than in the kitchen.

We pan one more time to the right.

Lots of storage space on the covered patio.

More storage.

Spacious yard.

The Nightmare Before Halloween

November 12th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Twas the night before Halloween and all through this house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse?

Now let’s take a look inside this Great Bend, Pennsylvania house. [Thank you to KG for sending us these photos]
Here we see a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray, plus sugary breakfast cereals.

Ashtray in the bathroom.

There is a child’s toilet in the living room! Dad is paralyzed with indecision: should he remove the toilet first or the Halloween balloon or unblock the front door?

And there’s the child! A little big for that training toilet. He seems sad. Perhaps because he’s not allow access to the balloons?

Party like it’s 1999. Or 1979.

Sorry, but that planking fad ended three years ago.

Band practice.

Like father like son. A drum set in the boy’s bedroom.

Cluttered kitchen.

Enclosed patio with dog and clutter.

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.

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.
