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.

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.

Did it snow in Houston?

They thought buyers would like to see behind the walls?

Must be fun for buyers to see this as they enter the house.

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.
