The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 4 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.

Very clever sellers.  If you break the fence trying to visit their house, you must buy the house.
