I just wonder why they even bothered taking pictures of this house. If it weren't for the pictures maybe it would have sold by now...

Why not just take an hour and throw all that crap away before taking pics? I don't get it.

Nani. My realtor friend would have just pick up the stuff and that would be it, because they would make very little money on the sale. So time working there would cost them money.

I think this is a foreclosure like some other posters have stated.

With that knowledge, yes, a realtor could have picked up said items, but more than likely, they are not making their normal commission on this property in the first place. And if they are not, I certainly would not pay for trash removal.

Most times, when people buy foreclosures, they know going in there is going to be some work that needs to be done.

I noticed that in 2005, home sold for approx. $270,000, now it is being listed for $160,000. Wow. Huge price difference. No wonder the home is foreclosure.

The foreclosure cleaning crew clearly did not do a good job before the photos were taken. Yikes!

i work in real estate and we would have only put the picture of the outside of the house. and the listing would say "as-in condition". in our market, that is code for "calling all builders and flippers".

foreclosure; getting it "as is." It has nice curb appeal and perhaps good bones. Someone could purchase it for waaaay cheap and do something with it...

My mother-in-law owns a real estate company and they do handle foreclosures, too. When she gets a house like that, she pays someone to come in and clean it up. As I understand it, the money to do that comes from Fannie Mae. I don't think it's much though. The person cleaning does keep the contents and she has stories of them making money off it that way as well.

Maybe it's handled differently here because we have comparatively fewer foreclosures than in other parts of the country.

Our friends bought a home in foreclosure several years ago and the inside looked like that. It was clear that the owners left in a hurry. They got such a good deal on the house that it was worth the extra clean up and the home is now a showplace.

Actually, this is the stuff I have nightmares about. I just had one last night:

This is my nightmare. It's not really happening:

Our house is being foreclosed on and I have no choice but to get out NOW and I have to leave all my belongings behind. It's a frequent nightmare...probably 3 or 4 times a week.

Looks like they had it listed at $143K last July.

Their housing prices went up and down!

Velouria, I am sorry.

Oh, that's my nightmare. That's not really happening. I need to clarify that.

I figure they opt to list with those pics as opposed to no pics to save themselves some time.

Why have umpteen people ask to see it, get one look at the mess, and lose interest immediately when you can post the pics and eliminate anyone not dead serious about dealing with a foreclosure sale, kwim?

The price increased $17,000 since July.
Holy cow.
Whoever has that listed must not be very serious about selling it.
I can't believe they didn't just rent a dumpster and shovel everything out.
It wouldn't take more than a couple hours to have that place clean

We bought our first home at auction. It was a foreclosure.
The people left stuff all over. They even shot a hole through the family room wall into the bathroom downstairs.
And they let the bathtub flood upstairs (over the downstairs bathroom) the toilet fell through the ceiling into the downstairs bathroom,
Oh! And the walls of the lower bathroom had been covered in mirrors, those were all broken with the shotgun pellets.
They left the entire mess.
And they didn't pay for trash service for years. So they burnt their trash (including plastic) in the fireplace.
The entire house smelled so bad because the burnt plastic had permeated the walls.

We gutted the place. I wouldn't live there until it looked like brand new. It was a lot of work but worth it.

It's a shame to see such a nice house trashed like that. It would be a good deal for someone who was willing and able to clean it up.

I'm not sure the house is trashed just that it has a lot of trash in it. It looks lovely from the outside and if it was in a decent neighbourhood it would be a great buy.

I did find the clothes spilling out of the broken wardrobe funny though, but I'm not sure what the last two pics were showing??

I like the oak trim but why take a photo of just oak trim isn't it a dime a dozen in north America?

This house is a ex foreclosure. Some of the families belongings were still under the house when we moved in 15 years later.

I've stayed in hotel rooms where no amount of paint can get the blood off the walls. Things could have been worse.
