The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 3 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.

Looks just like a football field.  Each line of weeds is 10 yards?

Uh oh.  The wall fell over.

Sleeping Porch

April 18th, 2016 · No Comments

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.

Crooked Window?

December 28th, 2014 · 3 Comments

These North Judson, Indiana sellers installed a window parallel with the stair riser.

It looks funny.  Maybe because it isn’t a square window.

Look What You Got!

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.

It’s not a bedroom closet.  It’s the bathroom shower with clothes on hangers on hangers.
