Tornado In Kingman?

September 8th, 2017 · 8 Comments

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

What happened?


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!

Explain that! The Kool-Aid guy visited?

Tanks, but no tanks. We’ll pass.

Kitchens Gone Wrong

August 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Messy kitchen with damaged plumbing.

Half of a window is better than no window. At least the curtain wasn’t knotted.

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.

Not Short On Belongings

August 14th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona, but long on the list of personal belongings on display.

Are you distracted enough by all the stuff to ignore the two missing tiles?

The closets are full.

The sellers ignored the ceiling.

Another view of the room.

And another view. Shoe‘dn’t the footwear be stored in a closet?

Stuffed full.

More ceiling damage.

He could not.

Kitchen islands are great for adding extra storage space.

Fine dining.

Too many cobwebs on the chandelier.

Missed opportunity to highlight the big picture window and vaulted ceiling.

One light bulb does not match the others.

What happened to the tiles by the drain?

Pot Stickers

The seller painted marijuana leaves on the bedroom wall, hoping to sell to the highest bidder.

Pot leaves. And what happened to the ceiling?

They grew pot in the bathroom too. Plus some mold and mildew?

Flowers In the Attic

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.

No Smoking

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.


Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?


We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.


We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.


Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.


Crack in the corner of the room.


We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.


And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.


Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.


Now let’s visit the kitchen.


Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.


Help wanted!


Old flooring.


Here’s a bedroom.


We turn to the right.


And to the right again.


Another bedroom.


And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.


We look to the right.


And to the right again, showing the stained wall.


We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.


Total rehab needed.

Tin Roof…Rusted

May 30th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Home Shopping Network!


Rusted roof!


Side of the house.


Quality construction of a room addition or storage room.


Building permits were approved.


The back yard is full of wonder.


Low-maintenance landscaping.


Free charcoal.


“Newer” gas water heater.


Unsafe and unprotected gas line to the water heater.


Barbed wire keeps thieves from entering the yard and stealing the valuables.


Now for some photos of the interior of the house. Ceiling damage here.


More junk inside.


Good luck.
