Terrible roofing job on the patio overhang.  They could have trimmed the shingles and installed proper flashing.

Ugly 3-D Tile Façade

August 24th, 2009 · 4 Comments

The previous homeowner stacked ceramic tile on the outside of the house to create a 3-D effect.  The only effect it had was scaring away buyers.  The roof needs help.  The landscaping is a mess.

Slight Roof Issue

The corner of the roof is about to fall down.  Then there’s the weeds and the evaporative cooler.  Looks like a fixer-upper.

After the Fire

June 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The sellers of this Phoenix home were trying to sell it by short sale in September 2008 before it went to the foreclosure auction.  This is how the house looked then.

When the house was listed in January 2009 as a bank-owned foreclosure property, it looked like this.  Fire happened somewhere in between.

Ugly Back Yard

May 28th, 2009 · No Comments

This back yard is not pretty.  No landscaping.  A little kid sitting in a kiddie car on the tiny patio.  Chairs and clutter on the patio.  A folding chair on the patio roof.  The eaves & fascia boards are rotting.  The 2nd floor window screen is bent.  How depressing.

A prospective buyer is checking out the dining room with plastic fruit and plastic seat covers on the chairs.
