They thought buyers would like to see behind the walls?

They painted the toilet orange.  Isn’t that a neat idea?

Fixer-Upper

January 6th, 2015 · 5 Comments

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.

Kinda ironic that the trash bin is just inches from the garbage.
By the way, this home received multiple offers from investors.  Brave souls.

This bedroom is comparably better.

Why didn’t they hoard/store stuff on top of the kitchen cabinets?

At least there’s an open pathway to the door, so that buyers can escape quickly.

Careless Sellers Could Care Less

Why bother offering home staging advice?  The sellers just don’t care.

What is that black water in the bathtub?  Dirty toilet too.

Short Sale At $65,000

July 16th, 2013 · 7 Comments

Peoria, Arizona home.  Purchased for $113,500 in 2001.  Refinanced in June 2007 for $176,000.  Sold as a short sale in 2013 for $65,000.  These are photos from 2013.

Being very conservative, let’s assume in 6 years they paid down their original mortgage to $110,000 by 2007.  The refi difference would be $66,000.  Cash-out refi?  To pay off other debts?  Or to remodel the home?  Let’s see if they remodeled.

First stop, the kitchen.  Doesn’t look remodeled.

Appliances are missing.

Now the family room.

And then we look up.  Ugh.

No money spent on new flooring in the living room.

Nor on new doors.

Nor windows.

Let’s see if they put money into new landscaping in the back yard.

The buyer gets to deal with this.

And this.

Wait.  Are those new doors?  And newer fencing too.

Buyers nowadays want home offices.  So if you have an extra room or the space, show it off as office space.  Create the scene.  Let the buyers imagine themselves working from home.
