Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.

Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.

The dust pan, the trash can…  And look at the dirty arms on that chair!

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.

Enjoy a nice relaxing bath here.

You’re supposed to say a prayer before using the toilet?

The front door needs some attention.  Along with the floor and the walls.
