Now that you’ve seen the dirt and filth of this Phoenix fixer-upper, let’s look at how the house was neglected.
This is the laundry room. There is evidence of roof leaks & water leaks throughout the home. At one point do you realize the problem isn’t going away? Do you just look down and ignore it while you do laundry?
Cracked ceiling in a bedroom on the other side of the house. Hmmm. We might have a problem with the roof.
Dirty hallway with spider webs.
Looking at it the other direction. More water damage.
Wall damage in the hallway, plus more cobwebs.
Extensive termite infestation in a bedroom. Termite tube on the right and a mess of termite mud in the corner. Probably wasn’t noticed until they cleared out the room.
Structural damage in a bedroom. Big crack from floor to ceiling.
Another wall crack in the living room. And a bigger crack by the front door.
The living room had vinyl tile that had crumbled over time. They scraped the tile into piles.
How much is this home going for? It’s listed for $205,000!! It is in a nice neighborhood, but homes in similar condition usually sell for $35,000-$45,000. This is a near tear-down fixer-upper due to the cat urine smell, the extensive roof & ceiling damage, the structural issues, sanitation issues, poor landscaping, and lack of cabinetry. It’s a $100,000 remodeling job at a minimum in order to have it match the neighborhood.
The current owners paid $170,000 at the foreclosure trustee’s sale. I’d bet money they bought it at auction sight unseen. We can only offer them our best wishes. Caveat emptor!
