July 11th, 2016 · 4 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.

Careful the peeled paint doesn’t fall into your food in the kitchen.

Kitchen.

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.
