The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 2 Comments

This Phoenix fixer could be worth $500,000 in San Diego.  Notice the roof and wrong type of paint.

Remember the window with the sideways board; I’ll refer to it later.

Artificial grass turf carpeting everywhere!  No need to waste water on real grass.

Looks just like a football field.  Each line of weeds is 10 yards?

Uh oh.  The wall fell over.

Outdoor Toilet

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

There’s nothing better than having a cool breeze on your back while using the toilet.  Everyone should install a toilet outside!  Place your toilet paper in the garbage bin.  Do you like the roof of this Houston, Texas home?  How about the gentle slope of the house?  Look how it’s higher on the left side.

Wood Rot

December 22nd, 2015 · 3 Comments

You woodn’t think there was wood rot in Phoenix, but, yes, we have it.  Mostly due to blazing sun rays and dry air.

Wood rot can be prevented or delayed with a good coat of paint and proper roof edging.

Here’s a patio support beam.  Wood rot will show up in a termite inspection report.  And if a lender sees the termite report, the rot will be required to be replaced/corrected before the buyer’s loan is approved.  If I see wood rot during a listing appointment, I point it out to the seller and strongly suggest it be corrected before the house goes up for sale.
