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.
The baby sticks those yucky peas and carrots in the hole in the wall.
The carpet is shot.
There are a variety of items on display out front. The wheelbarrow distracts you from the broken window.
The previous photo was better than this one. And that’s no bull.
The swimming pool adds extra value to the property.
Can’t wait for the new owner to transform this property.
The roof on the addition is buckling.
Another broken window.
The security door is not attached.

I sure hope they got a building permit for that room addition. I sure hope that door has a good seal. Looks like rainwater runs right into the house. [Cottonwood, Arizona]

Great opportunity at this Charleston, South Carolina home.
See? The kitchen already looks better from this angle.
Stainless steel appliance included.
The seller is giving you options: Fireplace or big screen TV in the corner.
Remodeled bathroom with new sink and toilet.
Paint paralysis. Blue or tan? Tan or blue?
The brand-new front door should count for something, right?
Room addition! That’s a bonus feature! Don’t look at the roof.

Thank you, Ben, for sending us photos of this Jerome, Arizona fixer-upper. Jerome is a small town built along a mountainside. Most of the homes are built on stilts and have great views of the valley below.
We’re taking bets to see if this home has a certificate of occupancy. It’s a fixer-upper. Check out the roof on the right side. And why is there a ladder in a horizontal position on the left side? [click to expand all photos]
Besides the rickety railing and clutter, shouldn’t the photo promote the scenic views?
They built a bench around two support posts. Granted, the posts are only 2 by 4s so the support is weak. Old washtub = cowboy bathtub?
Let’s go inside and see what features it has. Oh, it has a shelf! I dare you to pick up that jar.
The master suite features a sitting room.
The living room features a furnace. See the giant crack in the support beam?
When we pan to the right, we see clutter and unfinished walls. Is this the rustic look buyers crave?
Huntin’ and fishin’ shack.
The view from the other side of the wall. Thy (fishing) rod and thy staff (infection) comfort me.
The seller plans to install hardwood flooring some day. Notice the custom-built door with its sloping top.
They don’t take kindly to strangers. The last trespasser is taking a long nap in the freezer.
The bathroom. That is not a window; it’s a photo of a farm scene.
This house can be yours, if the price is right.

A bull dozer. We might need to call a bulldozer for this house.
Full bath is not supposed to mean full of stuff.
Licensed contractor was used here, right?
Careful! There’s no railing!!
Lead-based paint disclosure?
That room addition was built to code, right? A building permits obtained?
It does have a wrap-around porch.

Here are two house additions that have (or even haven’t ever) seen better days.
They tried to enclose the patio.
This one probably didn’t have permits. That box is an enclosure around a water heater. Looks like an outhouse (the door is missing a crescent moon).

El Paso, Texas home. The fence is made of chicken wire and sticks.
Now we move to the left and we can see they added a 2nd floor to the house.
There’s the house addition. Seems perfectly fine. Probably done by a licensed contractor and with city building permits.

They increased the square footage of their home with this room addition. It’s sure to add lots of value to the home.
