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?

Decatur, Georgia home.  There are smushed bananas on the floor.  And a hole in the floor.  And a rusty floor vent.  And mildew on the wall.  Drywall damage too.  Don’t slip on the banana peels as you run away from this house.

Amateur Remodeling

April 16th, 2009 · No Comments

You can always tell when amateurs try to remodel.  Check out the bathroom.  They installed the vanity and toilet before finishing the drywall and floor.  Where’s the window?  Why is everything crammed into one corner?

They tried to cover up a door and did a terrible job.

Too Bad For These Two Bad Dining Rooms

April 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Can buyers see themselves inviting friends over and eating in this dining room?

The caption for this room is “dining room,” but you’d never know.  Some buyers can’t see past the pool table and sports stuff and will wonder where they would eat in this house.  It’s better to keep rooms as they were originally intended when selling.  The buyers can do whatever they want once they move in.
