Save, save, save. You might need it some day.

Aluminum cans, chairs, mop handle. You never know.

The sellers are still ironing out some staging plans.

Formal dining room.

Upgraded ceiling fan.

No need for towel racks when you can hang all of your towels over the shower curtain.

Lattice Check Out This Home

October 24th, 2017 · 1 Comment

The lattice out front adds flair to this Wickenburg, Arizona home. It sat on the market for nearly one year. It eventually sold for $38,000.

Padded seating on the front porch; a nice touch.

The door is open for you. Come inside.

Room with a view.

The toilet paper is draped across the dusty toilet tank lid.

Extended garage.

Covered patio out back.

Nothing wrong with the roof.

Updated electric panel.

Field of dreams.

California Dreamin’

August 13th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Greg who sent these photos of a Tracy, California home. Supposedly the seller had grown marijuana in the garage a few years ago.

Lush landscaping in the back yard. Your own oasis from the chaos of the world.

Your first impression entering the house.

Too bad the photo is trashed by having a bag of garbage in it.

Child’s play and adult anger.

More damage seen around the house.

Access to shower plumbing.

A little too late to start tidying up now. The photographer waits for no one.

Y Ask Y

Most buyers would love a soaking tub. How about this one? It’s from a Goodyear, Arizona home being sold as a short sale.

Not sure why someone would need four pair of scissors at the ready.

The kid did pick up his room. Now to shampoo the carpet.

Cluttered garage. [The photo was blurry]

Above the covered patio is a sundeck! See the table up there?

Storage shed included.

Concrete blocks and scrap wood included too.

Two TV sets and a vacuum cleaner also included.

The owners were too tired to clean up the back yard.

This house could be yours, in six months when the bank approves the short sale.

It Could Be Worse

You never know when you’ll need a can of paint next to your bed.


Cozy room.


Another view of this room.


Play room with toys.


Another bedroom.


Living room.


Another view of the living room.


The kitchen is the neatest room in the house.


Knotted curtain in the kitchen. And a fly swatter.


Stained mattress in another room.




Over in the garage, the gas water heater was removed.


The toilet was added without a building permit. They installed it on a wood platform instead of installing a proper drain.


Washer and dryer are missing.


Oh, look. They added a yellow shower. Golden shower?


Covered carport out front is a convenient feature.


Spacious back yard.


So much to see.


Bars on the windows in case someone tries to steal their precious belongings.

Happy Fourth of July!!

July 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Today is the 4th of July.


Everyone is proudly displaying the American flag.


The flag is a symbol of freedom. Freedom to use it as a window curtain. Freedom to acquire and keep things (except when selling).


The flag encourages you to work harder.


The freedom to convert a covered patio into a living space and covering the fireplace with the American flag.


We are grateful the bed was made.


Happy 4th of July!

Flag Day

June 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Today is Flag Day when we honor the American flag. Except for these three home sellers who display their flags incorrectly. The blue field should always be in the top left.


Dog-gone-it! Another flag fail.
