Did a tornado or hurricane hit this Kingman, Arizona house? Good grief.

What happened?

Really?

Disaster scene.

This is a different fireplace than the one in the above photo.

What happened up there?

Messy bedroom with a hole in the ceiling.

Another hole in the ceiling.

And now an even bigger hole!

California Dreamin’

August 13th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Greg who sent these photos of a Tracy, California home. Supposedly the seller had grown marijuana in the garage a few years ago.

Lush landscaping in the back yard. Your own oasis from the chaos of the world.

Your first impression entering the house.

Too bad the photo is trashed by having a bag of garbage in it.

Child’s play and adult anger.

More damage seen around the house.

Access to shower plumbing.

A little too late to start tidying up now. The photographer waits for no one.

This Harrington, Delaware home left an impression on our reader Sarah. Was it the right impression?

170730harringtonde01

Careful going up those stairs!

170730harringtonde02

Bright paint color or wallpaper border won’t make up for the other flaws.

170730harringtonde03

Quality ventilation system.

170730harringtonde04

Double wallpaper borders and sponge paint. Are you green with envy?

170730harringtonde05

Getting any inspirations for your own house?

170730harringtonde06

Watch your step.

170730harringtonde07

Was the plumbing installed by a licensed contractor?

170730harringtonde08

Orange you going to write an offer to buy this house?

170730harringtonde09
