Awful House - Inside Photos

June 18th, 2012 · 5 Comments

This sad, neglected home was sold for $17,000.  As a tear-down, likely.  Anything worth salvaging?  We’ll take a look inside first.

This is the kitchen, believe it or not.

Many delicious meals were cooked here.

Worth saving?

When we said, “Fill the bathtub,” we meant with water, not junk.

Another bathroom.  The iron is there because?

Air fresheners really brighten up a home’s appeal.

It leads to junk.

Tempe, Arizona House Fire Complicated By Hoarding

January 25th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Yesterday, a Tempe, Arizona home, filled knee-high with empty beer cans, cardboard, and clutter caught on fire.  A space heater is blamed.  The 47-year-old resident was not home at the time.  Fire fighters could not enter the home, blocked by clutter.  The Huffington Post made a 1:30 minute video synopsis of news reports in their post here.

This photo is not that house.  This is a Phoenix home for sale.  It shows a bedroom following a fire.  Sad.

Basement Fire In Goddard, Kansas

June 12th, 2011 · 6 Comments

Fires are horrible.  This home in Goddard, Kansas had a fire in the basement.  If you didn’t know that, you’d think the house was a foreclosure.

Or you’d think the house was neglected.

Or that all it needs is new siding.

The fire department probably removed the siding to allow access to the basement.

Unfinished Repair Projects

May 6th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Buyers don’t want to see homes that need repair nor buy them.  Why should they fix the seller’s problems?

The caption for this photo states “roof leak.”  We appreciate your honesty in disclosing this problem, but how about fixing it?

This seller gave up on painting and installing counters.

Three Fixer-Uppers

April 19th, 2010 · 5 Comments

These three Phoenix homes need help on the outside (and probably the inside too).

You installed a new window?  Great.  Now finish the trim around it and the door, replace the siding, and remove the bricks & debris before putting it on the market.

Another stupid room addition.

Any fire is scary and tragic.  What makes it more poignant is when you see the personal effect it had on the home owner.  These Dayton, Ohio owners had pictures and family photos and more destroyed in the fire.
