Look what you can do with extra pieces of tile.

Same house, outside.  They do get extra points for creating a Phoenix bird rising from the (BBQ) ashes.

A garage was decorated with tile at a different house.

I’m jealous of people who have extra time on their hands.

Palm Springs Time Capsule

Today we are celebrating the 1970s in a Palm Springs, California home.  [I marked the category “Not Ugly” because the house is in such pristine condition.]  This is a listing in Palm Springs from one of my college fraternity brothers.  Please enjoy the 1970s flashback.  Groovy!

What fun.

It distracts you from the ceiling stain and the hole in the wall.

Thank you to our reader CG who waited patiently for two weeks until we posted these photos of an Evansville, Indiana home.

They say you should replace your mattress every eight years.

It has a pantry with an almost-see-through door.

The boy in the bubble?

More clutter.

Needs help.  The photographer and the bathroom.

One out of four isn’t bad.

The best room of the house.

The air freshener really helps.

Instead of a hole in the door, how about adding a window or skylight to this dark bathroom?

The clump of hair is impressive.

Weed you want to buy this house?

It’s rare to see a home in Phoenix without a patio cover.  Perhaps they tore it down?  There are holes in the wall above the sliding doors.  By the way, did you notice the cat under the table?

At least the air conditioner is still there.

Vacant Since 2010

January 15th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Short sale home.  It’s been vacant since 2010.  But after seeing the floppy disks in the office, maybe vacant since 1990?

Well-maintained carpet, not.  [I had to block out the profanity]

If the house has been vacant for over 5 years, do NOT open the refrigerator!

The pink toilet seat adds a bit of whimsy to the bathroom.

By the way, the buyer was required to pay $5,000 in past due HOA fines!  Ouch.
