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.

Martha complained that Rick’s smelly #2s could peel paint, but this is ridiculous!

Nothing to see up here, folks.  Keep looking down at the upgraded flooring and admire the custom drapery.

These Portland, Oregon house photos were sent by a reader.  Thank you.  The basement wet bar/pot den could use some help with the ceiling.

Half of the ceiling is exposed.  Careful you don’t get insulation in your drink.

Grove City Home Part 1 of 3

November 29th, 2015 · 2 Comments

This is our first post in a series of photos from a Grove City, Pennsylvania home, provided to us from an anonymous reader. We’ll look up at the home’s ceilings today.

Peeling paint everywhere.

The same room.

What happened?

ceiling damage peeling paint fixer-upper Grove City Pennsylvania home house for sale real estate photo

No, really.  What happened?

ceiling damage hole peeling paint fixer-upper Grove City Pennsylvania home house for sale real estate photo

It’s one thing to have a small water leak, but when you let it continue over time it will create major damage.  And it appears that there were leaks all over the house.

This didn’t happen overnight.  It’s years of neglect.
