Jump For Joy

May 24th, 2016 · 2 Comments

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.

Outdoor Toilet

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

There’s nothing better than having a cool breeze on your back while using the toilet.  Everyone should install a toilet outside!  Place your toilet paper in the garbage bin.  Do you like the roof of this Houston, Texas home?  How about the gentle slope of the house?  Look how it’s higher on the left side.

Occupied, Not Vacant

Messy short sale home.

This home was occupied while it was up for sale.  This is not an abandoned home.  The sellers lived here like this.

It went up for sale in August.  Some brave buyer wrote an offer in September.  And then waited and waited and waited for the bank to approve the short sale.  It finally sold in May.  Eight months later.

Vagabond Life

April 7th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Squatter’s rights?  Creepy.  I’ve seen this scenario several times in my career.  It’s scary to see buckets used as toilets and scary to think the vagrant might return any minute.  Another time, I showed a vacant house and then the supposedly vacant guest house.  I unlocked the guest house and opened the door but it was stuck.  I told my clients, “It feels like someone is pushing back on the door.”  And then there was a voice from inside, “There is!”  Oh, boy.  We got out of there quickly.  I called the listing agent and she said, “Oh, he’s back again.  That’s the third time now.”
