Before & After Fail

February 8th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This home in 2007 looks much better than it does in 2014.

Before Living Room.  This home had been updated in 2007 with new dual-pane windows, new air conditioner, new copper plumbing, new tile and carpet, fresh paint, and remodeled bathroom shower.  They tried selling it for $185,000 in 2007, but the real estate market was in a freefall then.  After lowering the price to $145,000 and getting no offers, they took it off the market.

After Living Room.  Vandalized and tagged with graffiti.  Purchased by an investor in 2014 for $42,000.

Before Bedroom.

After Bedroom.  Not the same bedroom, but you get the idea.  Another $2,000 at least on flooring and interior paint.  They’re into the house for $25,000.  $108,900 + $25,100 = $134,000.  Sold for $145,000.  $8,000 to $9,000 in closing costs?  They broke even.

Fireplace Surround Gone Mad

December 17th, 2013 · 4 Comments

These Glendale, Arizona sellers built a media niche around the fireplace so they could display their collectibles.  Everyone must have sprained necks from twisting their heads to watch TV.  Notice the knotted curtain too.

You’ll have to look very close to find the fireplace.

Here’s how this room looked in 2010 before the current owners got their hands on it.
