Goodness. Wouldnt someone want to do a little cleaning before taking pictures??? wow
According to HCAD the land value of this lot is about $50K. With a flat roof and a trashed interior, why would anyone pay more than that for this property? I’d subtract the cost of demo and go in with a $35K offer. The owner must have died or gone to prison.
At last a house that tells an authentic story.
At least remove the liquor bottles, for heaven’s sake. Though they do explain at lot….
Bulldozer on request?
Foreclosure, makes sense.
Bulldozer definitely needed for that chimney that’s giving the world a 1-finger salute.
The story pic is actually one of the better pictures. This isn’t a homeowner trying to stage their property for sale. It’s an as-is forclosure so there is no marketing needed to get someone to buy other than price.
The agent looks like pure sexy ladies man
Wow! Who the hell thought it was a good idea to take interior shots? Well, at least the realtor is being truthful about the state of the property. Pyewacket beat me to it, if this is not a foreclosure, then someone just decided to use it as a squat.
I will disagree that this is a teardown, this is a great example of a timeperiod in houston’s history that needs to be preserved. I’ve contacted city council to make this a historic landmark.
Concrete mix down the toilet!
At least the roof looks in good shape … except for that one lone shingle that’s trying to flee for it’s life!
I actually looked at this place when I was house-hunting 10 years ago. It wasn’t exactly neat, then, but certainly wasn’t this trashed. As I recall, the owner was going through a divorce, at the time, and wouldn’t let the home be shown without being present. The floorplan was oddly laid out, too. Now I’m going to have to see if I kept the flyer…
Same listing agent as the stripper pole townhouse: http://swamplot.com/houston-home-listing-photo-of-the-day-bedroom-practice/2012-12-12/
Dude gets around.
Yes, and his name is Sweat…Michael Sweat. Ladies, pay attention: he must be the Barry White of realtors.
