Assuming a child wrote that note and that he/she lives here, would that exposed hole and switch be safe for a child (or an adult)?

Thank you to our reader CG who waited patiently for two weeks until we posted these photos of an Evansville, Indiana home.

More clutter.

Needs help.  The photographer and the bathroom.

One out of four isn’t bad.

The best room of the house.

The air freshener really helps.

Instead of a hole in the door, how about adding a window or skylight to this dark bathroom?

The clump of hair is impressive.

Weed you want to buy this house?

It’s rare to see a home in Phoenix without a patio cover.  Perhaps they tore it down?  There are holes in the wall above the sliding doors.  By the way, did you notice the cat under the table?

At least the air conditioner is still there.

Houston Hovel Part 1 – Bathroom & Kitchen

January 10th, 2016 · 3 Comments

Dirty home in Houston, Texas.  We’ll have more photos next Sunday.  Have fun looking at the bathroom and kitchen today.

They’ve dismantled the sink.  It’s backwards and disconnected.  There appears to be a bottle of cleaner on the floor, but it was not used in the bathroom.

The toilet lid cover adds a touch of class to this bathroom.  The cockroach, on the other hand…

Dirty Driveways

January 6th, 2016 · 4 Comments

Oil-stained driveway.

In case buyers didn’t notice the big stain, the seller provided a second photo showing more stains.

Buyers have to walk past the oil stain to get to the front door.  Would it make sense to remove the stain before selling the house?

This photo tells buyers that the sellers have too much stuff in their garage, causing them to park outside.  And it tells them the sellers don’t take care of their cars.  Do they take care of their house the same way?

First impressions at the curb.  Not a good start.

This carpet has worn out its welcome.

Not much better in the next bedroom.

At another house…what did they do to ruin the carpet in the middle of the room?  Spit sunflower seeds?

Traffic patterns and worn-out padding at this house.  Hey, this is perfect for words describing apartments:  a flat & a pad.

The sellers hoped that buyers wouldn’t notice the missing tiles.
