Lawnmower + tall grass = the sellers would rather swing instead.

Pre-foreclosure sale in Phoenix. Lookin’ good so far.
It has a pantry with an almost-see-through door.
The boy in the bubble?
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.

Today we look at this Houston home’s living room, bedrooms, and yard.
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.
Do you dare venture down the hallway?
Just sweep all the garbage outside!
Not much space left in the storage shed.

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.

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.
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.
Two lawnmowers and yet the grass wasn’t mowed?!

Thank you to one of our readers for sending these photos of a Saint Paul, Minnesota home. It could use some tidying up.
Was it necessary to take a photo so close to the wall? Try one further back and open the window blinds. And remove unnecessary items.
Let’s remove the clutter from the side of the shed and take down the laundry.
Next time, take photos before the first hard frost. Otherwise the beautiful ferns look dead.

Here we have a messy house. Either two things happened: the seller is a messy person and doesn’t care how the house looks when selling or the renters moved out with their stuff left behind and the seller didn’t bother to clear it out before selling.
Now this mess becomes the buyer’s problem.
Hold on, maybe this was an estate sale. The owner died or went to a nursing home? Then it becomes the family’s burden to remove the stuff before selling.
The buyer discounts her/his offer to reflect the cost of trash removal.
The seller or seller’s family then gets less money on the sale.
Imagine how big this room would look once empty.
Room used as a pantry.
More fun for the buyer.
