The owner of this de-sided Houston, Texas home is undecided about the upcoming election.

Looks like the house got hit in a landslide.  We vote for new siding.  Or we’ll elect for another house.

Tree House Kid Bed

October 27th, 2012 · 7 Comments

This is too bizarre.  At first I thought it was a hiding place for cats.  Then I read the photo’s caption:  Tree House Kid Bed.  Uh, will that contraption hold the weight of a child?  What’s holding it up?!  Is that a drawbridge door on the left?

Another view.  Truly weird.  Are those plastic curtains?  How hot does that space get?

Where Did They Spend the $244,000?

October 26th, 2012 · 5 Comments

Let’s play a game:  Where Did the Money Go?
Phoenix home that was purchased for $82,000 in 1997.  They refinanced for $244,000 in November 2005 (when home values were artificially high).  It went to foreclosure in 2012.  An investor just bought it for $96,000.  So did the sellers get a cash-out mortgage in 2005?  Where did the money go?  Did they remodel the house?  Let’s see.

Not even one penny was spent on cleaning products or hand soap.
