Perfect for heavy rains.  The water flows under the house.

Let’s hope the cinder blocks don’t sink into the wet ground.

It’s What’s On the Inside That Counts

June 3rd, 2016 · No Comments

Don’t judge a house by its curb appeal?

This house could have granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Outdoor Toilet

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

There’s nothing better than having a cool breeze on your back while using the toilet.  Everyone should install a toilet outside!  Place your toilet paper in the garbage bin.  Do you like the roof of this Houston, Texas home?  How about the gentle slope of the house?  Look how it’s higher on the left side.

Crack(ed) House

May 11th, 2016 · 2 Comments

There’s a big crack at the corner of the house.  And another one under the window.  Might want a structural engineer to check it out before buying.

Bad Parking Photos

May 10th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Please remove all vehicles from the front yard before taking real estate photos.  Buyers want to see the house, not your cars.

It’s nice that they removed the vehicles from the driveway, but, c’mon, really?

This seller used his car to block the view of the damaged garage door.

Because there wasn’t room to park on the street?

See what happens?  The parent sets a bad example and the kid copies the parent.

Are you semi-interested in seeing this house?  Good grief.  Why take this photo?  It’s not (Kenil)worth it.

Today is Earth Day.  Celebrate by hugging a (dead) tree or two.  Walk barefoot in the (dead) grass.  Recycle.
