Another Vandalized Disaster

May 7th, 2013 · 4 Comments

Real estate is cyclical.  Conditions of homes are cyclical.  When the housing market tanked, nearly 90% of homes for sale were vacant.  We had a hard time finding photos with furniture & ugly decorations.  Then homes became neglected (weeds) and/or damaged (kitchens removed; houses trashed).  Then the market started to recover and we noticed a lot of nice looking, clean homes.  Finding ugly house photos was hard.  Nowadays, we’re seeing a return of the truly neglected (probably because the inventory is so low and because prices have gone up that investors are buying the leftovers) and also an increase in clutter & hoarding.

So here is another example of neglect and vandalism.  The home owner did not pay attention to the roof.

    How fast things change, 2010 when we bought a foreclosure with some damage no one else wanted it. We fixed it up and the other day a real estate lady came to the door wanting to know if we would like to sell it. Even with the $100,000 profit we would make we want to live there. Nice neighborhoods with no HOA appeal to her clients I guess.

    I’m thinking the roof leak went unfixed because the house has been vacant awhile.

    Hi author, all these pictures are showing a best example of a vandalized home. After looking to these pictures, it is seeming that this home has been a part of the water damage or flood damage in the past.
