Obviously, someone didn’t eat the apple, otherwise they would have known to paint over the tree and flowers before selling.

The Rolling Stones & Pink Floyd Slept Here

May 29th, 2009 · No Comments

I had the displeasure of previewing this $111,000 home in north Phoenix.  The room addition was built without a city building permit.  And it showed.  Here’s a wall mural of the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd logos.

Another view.

An unexplained hole in the wall next to the Rolling Stones logo.  Shouldn’t it be on the Pink Floyd side as another brick in the wall?

One of the bedrooms served as a bathroom for a dog or incontinent human.

Five Bathroom Mirror Reflections

Dogs are not self-aware of their reflections in mirrors.  Neither are these five amateur photographers.  Here we have a father and son team at a Scottsdale bathroom.

Out of Control Home Owner

May 22nd, 2009 · 4 Comments

The owner (we are assuming, of course) of this Phoenix home destroyed his/her house because it went to foreclosure.  Or vandals did it.  Either way, it’s illegal to damage a house regardless if the bank owns it or not.  Take a look at how this home was damaged enough to make it priced at $47,900.  The neighbors are probably not happy that their home values just dropped accordingly thanks to someone with anger management issues.

According to an article from the Arizona Republic newspaper, the FBI’s Mortgage Task Force unit is now arresting people who damage their foreclosed homes.  Also, a real estate investor was arrested for trying to sell his house’s appliances and cabinets on craigslist.

Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall

May 21st, 2009 · 1 Comment

Phoenix foreclosure home where the previous owners either trashed the house or vandals pushed over the water heater.  This now makes it harder for a buyer to get financing approved for the house.  Thus leaving the buyer pool limited to cash investors who might turn it into a rental property.  Which affects the make-up of the neighborhood.  Not to mention the lower sales price which also affects the neighborhood.

Bad Drywall Repair Job

May 18th, 2009 · No Comments

Maybe they had a water leak in the hallway?  And then tried to repair it by screwing sheets of drywall over it?  Too bad they did a terrible repair job.  Even the man in the photo looks shocked.

Cute On the Outside, Ugly On the Inside

May 17th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Cheboygan, Michigan is a cute little town at the very north tip of Michigan.  It’s quite beautiful in the summer and also in the winter when the snow is so pretty.

This home also has a guest house out back.  Looks fantastic, right?  Priced at only $14,000.  Yes, only $14,000.  How can that be?  What’s wrong with it?

Well, it seems they have a tiny little roof leak in both houses.  Oops.
