Can’t see the house because the seller’s cars are in the way.

170414a

The photographer couldn’t move to the left a few feet and step forward six feet? The seller couldn’t move the truck?

170414b

Are they selling the car or the house?

170414c

Same house as above photo and same poor quality.

Lots of dead leaves plus a tumbleweed for good measure. The sellers didn’t bother to rake and sweep the patio.

Just a little water leak to ruin your day.

Hey, Mr. Seller, how about fixing the problem before selling? Oh, wait, this is a short sale. That excuses the home owner from any responsibility, right?
