Well…at least not now.

The buyers will need to leave the crosses on the wall.  You know, just in case.

What other reason could there be for so many to be on display in every room of the house?

She also collects family photos.  And she has a gun/rifle.  When Grandma says, “I’m gonna shoot,” do you duck or say ”cheese”?!

Cluttered Walls

May 9th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Why would anyone put a hammer and a hoe on a kitchen wall or any wall inside a house?

They read this blog and knew to clear off the counters and to show off the floor, but…

What are those sticks in the upper right?  And notice more stuff on the walls in the next room.

Toy Collector

May 2nd, 2014 · 4 Comments

Here’s a home that was purchased in 1993.  The owner sold it to his son in 2001 for $68,000.  The son refinanced the house in 2010 for $211,000.  But now the house sold as a short sale for $92,000.  Hmmm.  Housing prices in Phoenix were at their lowest levels in 2010 and 2011.  Home prices have gone up considerably since 2010.  If the house appraised for $211,000 in 2010, surely it is worth at least that in 2014.  Thus, there wouldn’t be a need to sell as a short sale, especially at $92,000.  Let’s take a look inside and see where the $211,000 went.

We are welcomed at the front door by a dog, a person, and clutter.

The living room seems to be filled with sci-fi movie toy figurines, plates, and toy cars.  And boxes.

The dining room is loaded with dolls, er, fantasy figurines.  And more boxes.  That’s quite a collection.

Oh, look.  More toys.

He planned to fill these shelves as well.

So far, we haven’t seen any improvements to the house.  Here’s a bedroom filled with lots of clothes and stuff.

Another messy bedroom.  This one features a trio of ships and several Dawn posters.

Was money spent remodeling the kitchen?  No.  Those are original cabinets.

With a short sale, the owner has to prove that they have a financial hardship.  Aren’t you curious to see the reason he gave the bank?  “I was toying around with some investments but plans got shelved.”

The right Tidy Cat bin is labeled “Dog.”  Do humans use the other two bins?
