Short Sale In Glendale

October 25th, 2016 · 3 Comments

This Glendale, Arizona home could use a lot of help, starting in the bathroom.

161025a

Handyman special. Complete with nuts, bolts, and tools.

161025b

The toilet might be been here before.

161025c

The family room is used as an office.

161025e

The lamp (with no shade) rests comfortably on the stepstool.

Imagine the fireplace here.

Two TVs in this bedroom.

161025i

Another well-maintained bathroom.

161025j

Newspaper window treatment.

Time For a Shower

October 24th, 2016 · 3 Comments

Either the seller staged the shower to look like it’s ready to use (soaps, scrub pad, toothpaste, leg shaver) or they actually use it in this condition.  I like how far the handle is located into the shower, thus guaranteeing your arm (& probably your head or shoulder) will get wet when you turn it on.
