Short Sale Fixer-Upper

July 24th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Short sales accounted for only 3.5% of all sold listings in the Phoenix metro area in June 2014, the lowest since June 2008.  Thank goodness.  They are typically neglected homes.  Here’s a recent example.  And this wasn’t someone who bought at the height of the market.  This home was purchased for $92,000 in 2001 with no refinancing.  It sold for less due to the condition.

Cracked toilet tank.  How does that happen?  Mildew on the shower grout.

More problems in the bathtub.

There are a variety of items on display out front.  The wheelbarrow distracts you from the broken window.
