Will It Pass Inspection?

Back steps of a Chattanooga, Tennessee home.  Looks like the back yard floods each time it rains.  Notice how high the moss level is!

The sellers are worried that someone will break in?  Security bars on the door and windows?  Or are the bars to keep buyers from running away?

In Addition To

August 14th, 2013 · 2 Comments
