These three San Diego homeowners are going to be in for a shock when the buyers run away or ask for electrical repairs after seeing these safety hazards.

Electrical spaghetti.  Watt where they thinking?

    “Electrical Spaghetti” … lol!!
    Someone’s been watching too much “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”.
    … and I just love the ‘quag-wire’ above the soap dish. (’quag-wire’ is my new word, like it?)

    When I bought my last fixer-upper, I had appraisals done for the needed repairs and made an offer based on my offer minus the cost of repairs. They were going to put on a new roof over 2 old layers. I didn’t trust the sellers to do the jobs right. They took my very low offer. I had a proper roof put on, painted inside and out, crossed my fingers the 50 yr old furnace wouldn’t die on me and sold it 6 yrs later at double what I paid for it! I know the market isn’t what it used to be but I have always made a nice profit.

    Nathan, you have to be at least 14 to be an electrician. At least in these pictures.
