Outdoor Toilet

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

There’s nothing better than having a cool breeze on your back while using the toilet.  Everyone should install a toilet outside!  Place your toilet paper in the garbage bin.  Do you like the roof of this Houston, Texas home?  How about the gentle slope of the house?  Look how it’s higher on the left side.

Messy short sale home.

This home was occupied while it was up for sale.  This is not an abandoned home.  The sellers lived here like this.

It went up for sale in August.  Some brave buyer wrote an offer in September.  And then waited and waited and waited for the bank to approve the short sale.  It finally sold in May.  Eight months later.

Crack(ed) House

May 11th, 2016 · 2 Comments

There’s a big crack at the corner of the house.  And another one under the window.  Might want a structural engineer to check it out before buying.

Bad Parking Photos

May 10th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Please remove all vehicles from the front yard before taking real estate photos.  Buyers want to see the house, not your cars.

It’s nice that they removed the vehicles from the driveway, but, c’mon, really?

This seller used his car to block the view of the damaged garage door.

Because there wasn’t room to park on the street?

See what happens?  The parent sets a bad example and the kid copies the parent.

Are you semi-interested in seeing this house?  Good grief.  Why take this photo?  It’s not (Kenil)worth it.
