The black plastic was to stop bugs from entering but didn’t work?  The bug spray is ready to grab.

These Portland, Oregon house photos were sent by a reader.  Thank you.  The basement wet bar/pot den could use some help with the ceiling.

Half of the ceiling is exposed.  Careful you don’t get insulation in your drink.

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.

Groovin’ In Grove City

November 8th, 2015 · 4 Comments

Thank you to our anonymous donor for this Grove City, Pennsylvania home’s photos.  In our first photo, the seller is sitting down, waiting for buyers.  He also has a rifle on display in case buyers dare offer less than the asking price.

At least there isn’t a silly pot rack hanging in the middle of the kitchen.  Thank you.

Home Tour Highlights

April 17th, 2015 · 2 Comments

I went on a Realtor home tour yesterday and saw very nice homes.  There is always a seller or two that doesn’t get the memo on home staging or home presentation.  Here are two examples:

Collections on display.  You can’t tear your eyes away from all that stuff.  Many of the home’s rooms were like this.  Hard to remember the house and its positive features in this condition.  I wonder if instead of the seller doing an inevitable price reduction (let’s say $5,000), that they move out instead and spend the $5,000 on rent and storage.

Personal items.  I did a double take at this home’s bathroom.  No one wants to see a feminine hygiene product wrapper!
