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.
2013’s version is here.
2012’s version is here.
2011’s version is here.
2010’s version is here.

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.

Looks like someone dashed out of this Mesa, Arizona home in hurry. They left the TV behind.
Dine and dash?
Oh, that’s why landlords charge a cleaning fee.
Tall weeds surrounding the patio = they likely never went outside.
I doubt the landlord will give them a good reference.

Tumbleweeds and dirt. Sure to motivate buyers.

It’s so dry in California, even the weeds are dead. But there’s just enough water to keep the flowers alive in front. The flowers add a welcoming touch for buyers. [Coarsegold, California]

Short sale in Glendale, Arizona. Green algae pool. Dead grass. Palm tree fronds. Mattresses on the patio. What else was neglected?
