A Journey Into Decay & Neglect

November 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

This poor old house was neglected for decades. Check out the ceiling. And the dirt on the ceiling fan!

Decades of grease!!

Decades of cigarette smoke?

Two bottles of bleach is not enough.

It’s picture perfect.

The swan turned back into an ugly duckling.

Shelving included with the sale.

Vintage drapery.

Outdoor kitchens with BBQs are very popular.

The swimming pool’s condition took a dive.

Plenty of parking on the front yard.

The headrests have been eaten away by the hot sun.

Sponge paint. We haven’t seen that for quite some time.

The laundry room.

Tea-Stained Walls

October 25th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Bad patch job, no light bulbs, and a big hose coming out of the wall.

They went with an autumn color palette.

They should have staged this room with some pumpkins and corn shocks.

The good news is there are no popcorn ceilings anymore.

Vaulted ceiling.

Open floor plan.

Lots of natural light.

Master suite.

Endless possibilities.

A TV in the bathroom! Nothing like resting your head against the faucet while you stretch your head back to see the TV.

Kitchens Gone Wrong

August 30th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Messy kitchen with damaged plumbing.

Let’s clear off the counter tops and refrigerator.

Did a poltergeist open the doors and drawers?

Organized chaos tells buyers this kitchen is too small. Check out the ceiling stain too.

July 9th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Our reader Sarah sent these photos, thank you. Let’s look at some attics. Here’s a fixer-upper attic in Laurel, Delaware.

They say new paint and flooring will freshen up a house. The attic above could use paint and flooring, but perhaps not sloppy paint or bright paint like this Harrington, Delaware attic.

This Dewey Beach, Delaware home features a 6-person attic bedroom. No holes in the ceiling or bright orange paint, but no visible heating or cooling.
