Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.
Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.
The dust pan, the trash can… And look at the dirty arms on that chair!
Too bad this house is cluttered. The wood floors are beautiful.
MilkBone dog biscuits.
Cluttered kitchen too.
This house could look so much better.
The bathroom needs help. This house isn’t ready to be shown to buyers.
Nine rolls of toilet paper in this bathroom.
Paper towels along with clutter. Looks like a nice bedroom. Too bad you can’t tell.
The back of the house with wood deck.

A fire pit is a great place for friends to hang out.
They can play around the abandoned cars, lounge around in the chair, or lift some weights. Fun times back here.

This Phoenix fixer could be worth $500,000 in San Diego. Notice the roof and wrong type of paint.
Remember the window with the sideways board; I’ll refer to it later.
Artificial grass turf carpeting everywhere! No need to waste water on real grass.
Looks just like a football field. Each line of weeds is 10 yards?
Uh oh. The wall fell over.
Remember the boarded up window? Here’s what’s on the other side.
The bathroom size was increased.
Cast iron plumbing will last for decades.

This San Diego, California home is only 978 square feet. It sold recently for $655,000! In this condition. Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos.
What do we know about suggesting home staging and de-cluttering? The house still sold despite this.
Imagine how much the house will sell for once renovated. Would it get $1,000 per square foot?
We still recommend clearing off the clutter before selling.
Looks like it might have a basement apartment. Must be a real treat when it rains.
Paintball stains on the garage? It’s almost art. Looks like flowers.

In case you’re not sure what to do with your covered patio.

There are currently only 277 active short sale listings in the Phoenix metro area. Thank goodness. Here’s an example.
Take her. The dog is begging, “Forget her. Take me!”
Let’s back out of this cluttered bedroom.
Into another cluttered bedroom.
And another one.
The drawer front is missing.
The kid is not peeing. He’s looking at something. What is it?
It’s baby chickens!! With a short sale, you never want to count your chickens before they’re hatched. The bank has to approve the offer.
Over in the family room, it looks like the sellers have security cameras set up. In case someone dares to steal their stuff.
We pan to the right.
Deep fryer in the kitchen.
Dinner is served. Somewhere.
They included a photo at a higher viewpoint.
Personal belongings and toys take priority over the fireplace.
The covered patio is a great place to entertain guests.
This yard might have a swimming pool.
Well, at least it hasn’t turned green yet.

Here’s a Phoenix home with free-range chickens.
The Pelican Brief?
Deer in a Scottsdale home’s back yard. Since the deer isn’t facing the camera, is it being coy or being decoy?

Will buyers jump up and down when they see this beautiful back yard? Or will they shed a tear? The sellers are tired of us grilling them about cleaning up their yard.
Oh, look. There’s a lounge area for you to rest between weightlifting sets.
The dog is super excited about the fire pit.
