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

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?

March 2nd, 2013 · 6 Comments

I showed this house to my client and we were shocked and amused by the creepy shower curtain.  I had to take a photo and share it with you.  The previous renter left it behind.  My client ended up buying the house.
