After all of these decades of ownership, he only had $64,000 to show for it.  That’s the sales price.

    Yep, they sure are.

    $64,000 plus the cost of termite eradication, plumbing violations, electrical violations and the cost of having all that junk removed. Then the buyer will have to factor in the cost of rehab for the house. Doesn’t sound like too good a deal to me. But “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you” they are not my neighbors!!!

    With all the work that little house needs to make it liveable, it would almost certainly be cheaper to just tear it down and start over fresh.

    I bet that was a cute house in its day.
    Looks like lazy homeowners so I would guess most of the junk will stay. And roll off dumpsters aren’t cheap.

    I would have a panic attack every day if I lived there. I don’t get it.

    I have to ask…What is on the ceiling in picture 7? Lol

    They could be glow-in-the-dark stars or wet clumped paper towels.

    A woman lived there a long time ago, but I think she died and the hoarder son moved in. What a shame that was a cute little house once upon a time.

    we bought our 25 yo house when it was 2 years old and the neighbors still differentiate us from those that are ‘orginal’ owners. Ours is one of the nicest and well kept and every time I hear that reference I want to smack someone. This batch of pics show just how great ‘original’ owners can be.
