Selling Short In Tolleson, Arizona

January 11th, 2016 · 3 Comments

There continues to be a disconnect between short sale sellers and reality.  Short sale sellers are asking a big favor of the banks.  You’d think they’d care a little more about how their home looks.  Here’s another fine example.

Bud Light beer cans and bottled beer on the floor.  He’s a real tiger.

In bedroom #2, we see too much of too much stuff.

Hot and cold in this bedroom.  There’s a portable heater and a fan.

The chaos continues in the fourth bedroom.

Everything is easily accessible when it’s on the counter.  Except for extra light bulbs.

Laundry/storage room.

Something’s going on with the cooling system.  There’s an air vent in the dining room but they also installed a window air conditioner.

There was a family discussion about adding more furniture, but it was tabled.

Grandma’s House

January 3rd, 2016 · 3 Comments

These photos were sent to us from a fan.  Perhaps he was nostalgic for the good ol’ days.  Not necessarily ugly by this blog’s standards, but let’s say charming, like Grandma’s house.  From Grove City, Pennsylvania.
