This back yard is going to need a lot of work. The buyer said, “I want a house with a pool.” Next time be more specific.

A lot of flexible drain pipes buried in weeds in Aguila, Arizona. Because? And the picture was taken because? [At first, I thought they were Crocs shoes]
The seller also included a photo of a clean-out pipe in his yard. Very helpful, thank you.

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona. There’s a bottle of bleach but that toilet is still dirty.
The couch is on its last leg.
Her to-do list for getting the house ready to sell?
She could use the Trader Joe’s bag to hold the clutter. And then we’ll discuss the window blinds.
Attention to detail needed.
We hoped the back yard would be nicer.
Buyers love pools!
Large shade tree.

Junky back yard.
The ladder is to help you escape the weeds and junk.
Less junk but still ugly.

So much fun can be had in this Philadelphia, Pennsylvania back yard. You can play in the weeds, you can pick up sticks, you can wave at the dog next door, and plenty more.

Out of control Bermuda grass.
Out of control dead Bermuda grass.
London Rocket weed and dead tumbleweeds.
Cheeseweed (aka little mallow). Grows like a, uh, weed this time of year in Phoenix.

This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.
Notice how the refrigerator is missing in the photo above and is now seen on the far right side in the photo below.
Ugly, dirty cabinets. Dirty ceiling. Dirty kitchen.
As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain. Ugh.
In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.
At least they are patriotic.
There’s that knotted curtain! It makes a statement.
The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.
The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did. Just barely.
Dirty air conditioner vent. Dusty & cluttered bedroom.
The living room’s a real treat too.
The front of the house.
The back yard.

Please join me in singing the 5th annual UglyHousePhotos version of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Everybody join in now. A one, and a two, and a three.
On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Twelve knick-knacks dangling,
Eleven hats a hanging,
Ten trophies winning,
Nine dogs a barking,
Eight vacuum cleaners,
Seven masks a posing,
Six curtains knotted,
Five garden beds…
Four fuzzy dice,
Three red tongues,
Two turtles dead,
And a green chair near a fish tank.

Thank you to our reader Ella for sending us these photos of a San Angelo, Texas home.
Looks like they installed a squat toilet in the bathroom.
Precision paint stripes.
Pink & black paint plus blue carpet.
Bright red & black paint plus some blue carpet in this bedroom.
Will buyers be all smiles when they see this bedroom?
More subdued colors in this bedroom.
You won’t need a plunger if you have a squat toilet.
What goes in this corner? There’s no hole in the ceiling for a fireplace chimney.
Did they stretch out fly strips to make curtains?
The laundry room.
A second kitchen. The buyer gets to choose the flooring.
Outside we see a storm/tornado cellar or fallout shelter or dungeon or family mausoleum.
There are plenty of hose spigots so you can keep the lawn green and lush.
