These sellers were super dirty.  Disgusting floor of a bedroom.  You can see the outline of a dresser and a bed.  Did they ever wash their feet or wipe their shoes?  Is that dog feces?

Is doesn’t look any better from a distance.

Another filthy bedroom.

And a third dirty bedroom.  How many years (decades?) does it take to reach that level?

No surprise that the bathroom is dirty too.

The kitchen’s not so bad.  Although the ceiling and refrigerator door handles could use some cleaning.

That’s really old carpet in the living room.  So if it doesn’t have a pathway of filth, why are the bedrooms so nasty?

The house has roof leak issues too.

Flooding the Market

Looks like this Lake City, Florida home might have been flooded.

Look at the water line.

What happened?

That’s crazy.

The water’s supposed to be in the tub not outside of the tub.

It appears like the entire house filled up with water.

But the exterior of the house shows no water marks.  Perhaps the doors are sealed so tight that they kept the water inside.
