Palm Springs Time Capsule

Today we are celebrating the 1970s in a Palm Springs, California home.  [I marked the category “Not Ugly” because the house is in such pristine condition.]  This is a listing in Palm Springs from one of my college fraternity brothers.  Please enjoy the 1970s flashback.  Groovy!

Thank you to our reader CG who waited patiently for two weeks until we posted these photos of an Evansville, Indiana home.

They say you should replace your mattress every eight years.

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.

This carpet has worn out its welcome.

Not much better in the next bedroom.

At another house…what did they do to ruin the carpet in the middle of the room?  Spit sunflower seeds?

Traffic patterns and worn-out padding at this house.  Hey, this is perfect for words describing apartments:  a flat & a pad.

Patterned wallpaper and patterned carpet in a Grove City, Pennsylvania home.

Wallpapered bathroom with blue toilet.

The carpet has faded over time and now looks a little like hay.  Perfect for the barn walls.

Nice cabinets and a clean kitchen.  The patterned tile counters and back splash might appear outdated and “country.”
