Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

    Pretty awful, but I think that the owner may be some very elderly person and things just got away from them over the past several years. The photographs on the living room wall tell a story of someone who is in the Winter of life.

    The thought of children living in this house is upsetting. The stains on the curtain and ceiling damage suggest some kind of water leak from overhead pipes or cumulative ceiling damage from a bad roof during rainy days.

    I too think it’s some poor elderly soul that has created a lot of wonderful family memories with her large family. Over the years family members move on and granny’s left to deal with house &upkeep problems. No extra money or the ability to do it herself and she does what she can with what she has. See it all the time. Very sad.
