Your kids are sure to squeal with delight when they see this amazing playhouse. And then they’ll squeal in pain from splinters, loose nails, black widow spiders, etc.

Graffiti on a door.
Scribbles and nonsense.
Was it a kitchenette for a guest house?

Bonus photos of the Before house. Here’s the back yard with a water feature.
The stair lead to an additional structure on the property. Wanna bet they didn’t get a building permit for it?
More damage in Bathroom 3.
Another view of Bathroom 3.
Laundry room or storage room?

Short sales accounted for only 3.5% of all sold listings in the Phoenix metro area in June 2014, the lowest since June 2008. Thank goodness. They are typically neglected homes. Here’s a recent example. And this wasn’t someone who bought at the height of the market. This home was purchased for $92,000 in 2001 with no refinancing. It sold for less due to the condition.
Cracked toilet tank. How does that happen? Mildew on the shower grout.
More problems in the bathtub.
The baby sticks those yucky peas and carrots in the hole in the wall.
The carpet is shot.
There are a variety of items on display out front. The wheelbarrow distracts you from the broken window.
The previous photo was better than this one. And that’s no bull.
The swimming pool adds extra value to the property.
Can’t wait for the new owner to transform this property.
The roof on the addition is buckling.
Another broken window.
The security door is not attached.

Want to spice up your kitchen? Add colorful paint smears to the walls!
From the looks of it, it should only take 3 minutes to complete.
The artist sponged a bedroom ceiling as well.

If you can make it safely down the rail-less stairs to this Philadelphia, Pennsylvania basement…
…you’ll see what possibilities exist down here.
So much potential. For radon gas, for mildew, etc.

Unusual tile patterns, odd structural changes, and/or amateur remodeling can scare buyers. Because they know it will require lots of work and dust to change it.
Today’s buyer would rather pay more for a house that is remodeled or in good/clean condition than a house that requires finishing a project.

Covered patios are highly desirable home features in Phoenix.
So are new roofs.
And nice landscaping.
But in Phoenix, any shade is good shade.

You won’t have to take many steps in this kitchen. Only a few feet to the washer and dryer, only a few feet to the stove and refrigerator. And you’ll save even more energy but not wasting calories on opening cabinet doors under the sink.

Gross! Disgusting carpet and moldy walls in a Houston, Texas home.
