This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.

Notice how the refrigerator is missing in the photo above and is now seen on the far right side in the photo below.

Ugly, dirty cabinets.  Dirty ceiling.  Dirty kitchen.

As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain.  Ugh.

In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.

At least they are patriotic.

There’s that knotted curtain!  It makes a statement.

The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.

The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did.  Just barely.

Dirty air conditioner vent.  Dusty & cluttered bedroom.

Horse Property?

December 20th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Big bins for hay?  Plastic barrels for water and oats?  Water trough?  Are these sellers horsing around?  Or is it for gardening?  Either way, it’s sure to confuse buyers.

This property in Eloy, Arizona has TWO dead trees (above and below photos).

The dead tree adds so much to the curb appeal.

The orange tree is dead.

Two half-dead trees or should we be more optimistic and say two half-alive trees?

This tree doesn’t look healthy.  Why did the seller take a photo of it?
