Avoid Disappointment

December 19th, 2013 · 1 Comment

The back patio looks a little dusty and cluttered.  Plus stacks of bricks.  Let’s ask the seller what her plans are.

It says, “avoid disappointment” in the bedroom.  There’s also baseball caps and knives.

Bears & Guns & More

July 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments

There are so many treats for you to see with this Mesa, Arizona home.  Click on each photo to expand.

Home purchased for $300,000 in 2007.  Sold recently as a short sale for $145,000.  In this condition.

That’s quite a collection of stuffed bears.  And a gun collection too!  And a safe.  And a 1990s valance with pastel colors.  Sure looks like a 1980s vintage Apple computer (see the reflection in the mirror).  A 1970s waterbed frame & headboard.

More stuffed animals in the next bedroom.  Plus jugs of water (the bears get thirsty!).  And a stethoscope (because?).  And dream catchers.  And fuzzy dice!!  So many fun things to see.

In the master bedroom, the bed is on concrete blocks!!!  Check out the dust on the ceiling fan blades!!  Arm pad is missing from the chair.  Ugly window.

And in this bedroom, Spider Man is wearing a cowboy hat!  Arizona Cardinals football bedspread and other items.  And then there’s a Denver Broncos football blanket as a window curtain.

In the family room, at least 9 persons can sit comfortably.  The towels helps absorb moisture; it gets hot in Mesa.  Prescription bottles on the left and right sides of the photo.

How many bedrooms does this house have??!  An unmade bed.  That weight bench seat looks like it’s cardboard.

And a room converted to a bedroom.  No wonder they have so many chairs and sofas.  Please note the bottle of rum on the dresser.  And then the bottle of whiskey next to the Sugar Pops cereal box and the skull!!
