The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 3 Comments

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.

Enjoy a nice relaxing bath here.

You’re supposed to say a prayer before using the toilet?

The front door needs some attention.  Along with the floor and the walls.

The only outdoor light in the kitchen comes from the hole in the cabinet!

They probably did us a favor by removing the carpet.

Newer faucet and newer vanity add value to the house.

Occupied, Not Vacant

May 12th, 2016 · No Comments

Messy short sale home.

messy cluttered chaotic piles of stuff junk kitchen short sale Phoenix Arizona home house real estate photo

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.

More clutter.

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.

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.

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.

December 29th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Is it too much to ask for nicer real estate photos in 2016?  Weed really like it.

Weed like to see home sellers pay more attention to detail when selling their homes.  Like getting rid of grass along the sidewalk.

They stucco’d the exterior but didn’t finish with paint.  They also enclosed the carport.
