No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

Tan Your Hide In Mabelvale

June 4th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers, thank you, sent photos of a foreclosed home in Mabelvale, Arkansas, located near Little Rock and only one mile away from Bass Pro Shop on I-30. We did a little sleuthing and found photos when it was up for sale before the bank took it back.

They have a tanning bed in their bedroom! Along with a Sturgis (South Dakota) Black Hills Rally flag.

170604mabelvalear1

Many items on display in another bedroom including Valentine’s Day balloons.

170604mabelvalear2

Booze and more on display around the fireplace.

170604mabelvalear3

If we step back and shift to the left, we see the rest of the room.

170604mabelvalear4

The only overhead light in the kitchen needs a cover.

170604mabelvalear5

You have two options leaving the front porch: stairs or slide.

170604mabelvalear6

You can shoot hoops while jumping on the trampoline. And there are two giant TVs on the porch. The riding mower does not convey with the house.

170604mabelvalear7

These are the current photos sent by our reader. No more trampoline or TVs in front. Bummer.

170604mabelvalear8

The slide and the rider mower are gone too.

170604mabelvalear9

The front side of the house.
