Front entrance of a condominium for sale in Phoenix. The HOA is responsible for maintaining the premises, landscaping, and general appearance.
They stucco’d the exterior but didn’t finish with paint. They also enclosed the carport.
Waiting for buyers.
Weed you want to see this house?
Pink and orange. Interesting color combo.

One big arch. Two smaller arches. And a 4th arch as a doorway. Arch you glad you saw this house from Eloy, Arizona?

Today is time to tidy up this house.
Time to put the clothes away.
At least the lid is down.
Please clean the grout.
In the second bathroom, the newer vanity is smaller than the original vanity. Mind the gap.
Getting an early start on Christmas.
Staging assistance needed here.
At least there’s only one pan hanging from the pot rack.

Aha! You thought we wouldn’t see the knotted curtains if you distracted us with piles of clutter.

Patterned wallpaper and patterned carpet in a Grove City, Pennsylvania home.
Wallpapered bathroom with blue toilet.
The carpet has faded over time and now looks a little like hay. Perfect for the barn walls.
Nice cabinets and a clean kitchen. The patterned tile counters and back splash might appear outdated and “country.”

Here we have a messy house. Either two things happened: the seller is a messy person and doesn’t care how the house looks when selling or the renters moved out with their stuff left behind and the seller didn’t bother to clear it out before selling.
Now this mess becomes the buyer’s problem.
Hold on, maybe this was an estate sale. The owner died or went to a nursing home? Then it becomes the family’s burden to remove the stuff before selling.
The buyer discounts her/his offer to reflect the cost of trash removal.
The seller or seller’s family then gets less money on the sale.
Imagine how big this room would look once empty.
Room used as a pantry.
More fun for the buyer.

I saw this roof near one of my listings. Good grief. Time for a new roof!
