Back in the day, before air conditioning, Arizonans survived the summer heat by sleeping outdoors on sleeping porches. Sometimes they placed wet sheets in open windows or on porches to create cooler air. Sometimes, as we see at this Wickenburg, Arizona home, they crack holes in the window panes to let air to flow in.

These North Judson, Indiana sellers installed a window parallel with the stair riser.
It looks funny. Maybe because it isn’t a square window.

The box reads, “Look what you got!” We’re definitely seeing what these sellers “got.” And it’s a lot of stuff. Is that a Cabbage Patch doll?
The dining room features dog food bags, old carpet, and dusty ceiling fan blades.
The bathroom floor is uplifting.
Gently used over the decades.
Another cluttered bedroom. The bag reads, “Last Chance,” as in last chance to impress buyers.

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.
