A Journey Into Decay & Neglect

November 7th, 2017 · 2 Comments

This poor old house was neglected for decades. Check out the ceiling. And the dirt on the ceiling fan!

Decades of grease!!

Decades of cigarette smoke?

Two bottles of bleach is not enough.

It’s picture perfect.

The swan turned back into an ugly duckling.

Shelving included with the sale.

Vintage drapery.

Outdoor kitchens with BBQs are very popular.

The swimming pool’s condition took a dive.

Plenty of parking on the front yard.

The headrests have been eaten away by the hot sun.

Bad Parking

October 16th, 2017 · No Comments

Let’s park our car on the front yard.

Sounds like a good idea. I’ll do it too.

Me too!!

If it’s outside the fence, does it count?

Because there was no room on the driveway or street to park there instead?

If the seller was unwilling to move the trailer, perhaps the photographer could step 15 feet to the right?

Can’t see the house because the seller’s cars are in the way.

170414a

The photographer couldn’t move to the left a few feet and step forward six feet? The seller couldn’t move the truck?

170414b

Are they selling the car or the house?

170414c

Same house as above photo and same poor quality.

The truck blocks the view of the house.

170109a

C’mon, move your car off the lawn.

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