Catty Shack

March 7th, 2014 · 9 Comments

Thank you, Ben, for sending us photos of this Jerome, Arizona fixer-upper.  Jerome is a small town built along a mountainside.  Most of the homes are built on stilts and have great views of the valley below.

We’re taking bets to see if this home has a certificate of occupancy.  It’s a fixer-upper.  Check out the roof on the right side.  And why is there a ladder in a horizontal position on the left side?  [click to expand all photos]

Besides the rickety railing and clutter, shouldn’t the photo promote the scenic views?

They built a bench around two support posts.  Granted, the posts are only 2 by 4s so the support is weak.  Old washtub = cowboy bathtub?

Let’s go inside and see what features it has.  Oh, it has a shelf!  I dare you to pick up that jar.

The master suite features a sitting room.

The living room features a furnace.  See the giant crack in the support beam?

When we pan to the right, we see clutter and unfinished walls.  Is this the rustic look buyers crave?

The bathroom.  That is not a window; it’s a photo of a farm scene.

It was sold as a major fix-up “not for amateurs.”

The court ordered it sold due to a family dispute over a lien on the property.  The tenants were family members who did not pay rent.  And they had dogs that were dangerous.

Happy Independence Day

July 4th, 2013 · No Comments

Today is the Fourth of July.  Americans are celebrating their independence.  And sellers are displaying their patriotism in various manners.

American citizens have the right to clutter their homes.  Although not recommended when selling.

What’s more patriotic than the American flag, the Harley Davidson eagle, a gnome statue, and a chihuahua dog?

You have the right to wipe your hands on the American flag.

Even their waterbed’s headboard lights are patriotic.  Blue light bulb and a red light bulb!

We’re dreaming of a white Christmas and it came true in Farmington, New Mexico.

The house was listed for sale in December, but the Halloween decorations are still up.

The bedroom has a heater because Junior likes to wear short pants in December (see his knees on the right?).
