She collects plates.  From the Franklin Mint or Danbury Mint?

She spent a mint on those plates.

More plates in the bedroom!  They’re like tribbles; they keep multiplying.

She also collects family photos.  And she has a gun/rifle.  When Grandma says, “I’m gonna shoot,” do you duck or say ”cheese”?!

A rifle, a scythe, two saws, and a golf club.  Grandma’s ready for the zombie apocalypse!

Not a Fan Favorite

One of our readers, Mario, sent us these photos.  The city is unknown.  The bathroom did not impress Mario.

He wasn’t thrilled by the brick wall in the living room.

Toy Collector

May 2nd, 2014 · 4 Comments

Here’s a home that was purchased in 1993.  The owner sold it to his son in 2001 for $68,000.  The son refinanced the house in 2010 for $211,000.  But now the house sold as a short sale for $92,000.  Hmmm.  Housing prices in Phoenix were at their lowest levels in 2010 and 2011.  Home prices have gone up considerably since 2010.  If the house appraised for $211,000 in 2010, surely it is worth at least that in 2014.  Thus, there wouldn’t be a need to sell as a short sale, especially at $92,000.  Let’s take a look inside and see where the $211,000 went.

We are welcomed at the front door by a dog, a person, and clutter.

The living room seems to be filled with sci-fi movie toy figurines, plates, and toy cars.  And boxes.

The dining room is loaded with dolls, er, fantasy figurines.  And more boxes.  That’s quite a collection.

Oh, look.  More toys.

He planned to fill these shelves as well.

So far, we haven’t seen any improvements to the house.  Here’s a bedroom filled with lots of clothes and stuff.

Another messy bedroom.  This one features a trio of ships and several Dawn posters.

Was money spent remodeling the kitchen?  No.  Those are original cabinets.

With a short sale, the owner has to prove that they have a financial hardship.  Aren’t you curious to see the reason he gave the bank?  “I was toying around with some investments but plans got shelved.”

The right Tidy Cat bin is labeled “Dog.”  Do humans use the other two bins?

Very Motivated Seller

Sally will do anything to get an offer on her house.  Anything.  Just give her a 10 minute warning before visiting the house so she can slip into something more comfortable.
