If these are the owners, they sure didn’t care about getting higher offers from buyers.  If these are renters, the seller should have kicked them out and repainted the house.

Vandalism.

But at this home, the heart isn’t quite the same quality as Betty Boop’s heart.  Should we call this Betty Oops?

Before & After Fail

February 8th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This home in 2007 looks much better than it does in 2014.

Before Living Room.  This home had been updated in 2007 with new dual-pane windows, new air conditioner, new copper plumbing, new tile and carpet, fresh paint, and remodeled bathroom shower.  They tried selling it for $185,000 in 2007, but the real estate market was in a freefall then.  After lowering the price to $145,000 and getting no offers, they took it off the market.

After Living Room.  Vandalized and tagged with graffiti.  Purchased by an investor in 2014 for $42,000.

Before Kitchen.

After Kitchen.  Neglected and vandalized.  Copper pipes stolen.

Before Front of House.

After Front of House.  Dual-pane windows smashed and destroyed.

Graffiti.  Would be an awful marketing campaign for attracting people to move to Phoenix.

Why didn’t they hoard/store stuff on top of the kitchen cabinets?

At least there’s an open pathway to the door, so that buyers can escape quickly.
