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.

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.

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.

Tall weeds surrounding the patio = they likely never went outside.

There’s a Drought In California

October 12th, 2014 · 3 Comments

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]
