It has solar power too.

Feel free to use a spare bedroom as storage.

Extension cords.

Lots to see in the kitchen. Just don’t look at the ceiling.

Custom chandelier.

No need to worry about raking leaves.

Free weeds.

Potential

The dead weeds almost create an artistic pattern out front.

The stucco fell off.

Water heater and weeds.

Don’t mind the roof.

Tile on the diagonal was an upgrade.

Shards of joy.

Fine Tuning Needed

August 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Pamala for sending us photos of a Eugene, Oregon house. Pamala is impressed with the front of the house.

She writes, “Room looks the same right side up or upside down. I love a polished ceiling, don’t you?”

She wonders if the sellers could have waited to finish their construction project before selling. “Is that a crack in the wall by the window?”

Perhaps they have cable TV in the shower?

The seller did not repair the damaged bathroom vanity or paint the bathroom.

Aah. The feel of soft grass under your bare feet.

California Dreamin’

August 13th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Greg who sent these photos of a Tracy, California home. Supposedly the seller had grown marijuana in the garage a few years ago.

Lush landscaping in the back yard. Your own oasis from the chaos of the world.

Your first impression entering the house.

Too bad the photo is trashed by having a bag of garbage in it.

Child’s play and adult anger.

More damage seen around the house.

Access to shower plumbing.

A little too late to start tidying up now. The photographer waits for no one.

Y Ask Y

Most buyers would love a soaking tub. How about this one? It’s from a Goodyear, Arizona home being sold as a short sale.

Not sure why someone would need four pair of scissors at the ready.

The kid did pick up his room. Now to shampoo the carpet.

Cluttered garage. [The photo was blurry]

Above the covered patio is a sundeck! See the table up there?

Storage shed included.

Concrete blocks and scrap wood included too.

Two TV sets and a vacuum cleaner also included.

The owners were too tired to clean up the back yard.

This house could be yours, in six months when the bank approves the short sale.
