Short & Not Sweet

Short sale in Gilbert, Arizona.  Notice how the carpet was originally pink in color (where the bed used to be).  And notice the carpet torn up.  And the window “drapes.”

Budding New Real Estate Agent

January 9th, 2015 · 4 Comments

You must be at least 18 years old to be a real estate agent in Arizona.  But you’re never too young to be a wannabe agent.  This kid’s got a knack for selling homes!  He’s stamping down the ground after installing the for sale sign by himself.
