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.

Weed you want to buy this house?

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.

Front entrance of a condominium for sale in Phoenix.  The HOA is responsible for maintaining the premises, landscaping, and general appearance.

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

Waiting for buyers.

The Cage Didn’t Work

October 11th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Thieves like to steal copper from air conditioner units, especially at abandoned homes.  Banks then began investing in $1000 cages to protect the air conditioner units at their foreclosure properties.  Not all cages work like they should.  The air conditioner was stolen at this Houston, Texas home.  The joke’s on the thieves.  Why steal $20 worth of copper when you can steal a $1000 cage?

Home Stager? Where Art Thou?

Lots to see and not what we want buyers to see.  Too many visual distractions.

As we pan to the right, we see a bikini poster next to a religious calendar.  Interesting juxtaposition.

And even more stuff.  Looks like they’ve kept every calendar since 1974.

Bed sheet used as a window curtain in this bedroom.

The bathroom could use a cleaning.
