Impressive fence repair.
Impressive fence repair.
Blame this home’s chaos on the Minions! What other explanation could there be?
Marissa’s door has a lot of a-peel.
Here’s another view of her bedroom.
Another cluttered bedroom.
There seems to be a cat on top of the shelves in the corner.
What happened to this sink?!!?
Cluttered dining room. Too bad the vacuum can’t suck out everything.
Unfinished paint project too.
Will buyers think, “Don’t the sellers care?”
Save, save, save. Hoard, hoard, hoard.
(and another sigh)
Peoria, Arizona home. Purchased for $113,500 in 2001. Refinanced in June 2007 for $176,000. Sold as a short sale in 2013 for $65,000. These are photos from 2013.
Being very conservative, let’s assume in 6 years they paid down their original mortgage to $110,000 by 2007. The refi difference would be $66,000. Cash-out refi? To pay off other debts? Or to remodel the home? Let’s see if they remodeled.
First stop, the kitchen. Doesn’t look remodeled.
Appliances are missing.
Now the family room.
And then we look up. Ugh.
No money spent on new flooring in the living room.
Nor on new doors.
Let’s see if they put money into new landscaping in the back yard.
The buyer gets to deal with this.
Wait. Are those new doors? And newer fencing too.

This back yard is certainly making an impression. But what kind of impression?
We pan to the left. The two wall air conditioners were professionally installed.
And to the left again. Every six feet is another type of fencing.
It’s pretty sad when the doghouse has graffiti.
Uh, something’s not quite right with this block fence.
Some caulking should solve this problem.
Further along the fence, someone decided to cut vertically. Perhaps to relieve the stress from the other section? Still…now you have 2 problems to deal with. A buyer will see this and think, “I’m not going to pay for that or want to deal with it?” So wouldn’t it be easier for the seller to fix the problem before selling?
El Paso, Texas home. The fence is made of chicken wire and sticks.
Now we move to the left and we can see they added a 2nd floor to the house.
There’s the house addition. Seems perfectly fine. Probably done by a licensed contractor and with city building permits.
Private property. No trespassing. Welcome not to our home.
We updated the kitchen.
Great view of the back yard from the kitchen sink.
Plenty of storage space for food.
The water running down the vent and hall ceiling helps keep the house cool in the summer.
Fresh paint in the bathroom.
Oh, yes, it’s clean.
The bedroom can easily accommodate a large dresser.
We’ve really enjoyed using this house.
We have a private covered patio.
Just like the fence, we’re hoping you’re leaning toward buying our home.
Comedian Bill Engvall took one look at this Buckeye, Arizona home and said, “Here’s your sign.”
Debt is high. Spending is up. No money left in the budget to fix the ugly fence.
Five unimpressive back yards.
This is a sandbox for Gulliver’s kids?
There are certainly possibilities back here.
Great place to entertain! And easy access to firewood!
You might need these items some day. You never know.
The neighborhood cats will love this back yard.
