This bedroom is half tidy.

Why did they remove the rug?  Buyers might have thought that was the normal color of the carpet.

The pink fabric vertical blinds complement the wallpaper border.

The wallpaper border in the kitchen is birdhouses but they look like outhouses.  Did you see the neon green plastic pumpkin too?

Before dining room, with furniture.

It Has Wainscoting

November 2nd, 2014 · 3 Comments

Let’s start with the positives about this Evansville, Indiana home:  it has wainscoting.  And at least they didn’t do one more twist to knot the curtains.  And for that, we thank you.  Now about the fan, the dog, the cords on the floor, the cord on the ceiling with foil (!!), that damaged wall, the dream catcher, and the dirt.

Bacteria Factory

These sellers were super dirty.  Disgusting floor of a bedroom.  You can see the outline of a dresser and a bed.  Did they ever wash their feet or wipe their shoes?  Is that dog feces?

Is doesn’t look any better from a distance.

Another filthy bedroom.

And a third dirty bedroom.  How many years (decades?) does it take to reach that level?

No surprise that the bathroom is dirty too.

The kitchen’s not so bad.  Although the ceiling and refrigerator door handles could use some cleaning.

That’s really old carpet in the living room.  So if it doesn’t have a pathway of filth, why are the bedrooms so nasty?

The house has roof leak issues too.
