Detatched



This house is listed as being "detached," which makes me laugh (probably because I'm not quite awake yet, and thus easily entertained -- as opposed to when I'm fully alert, and thus easily entertained).

The separation of the conjoined twinhome was successful!

What are they thinking? The ad claims that the "seller is motivated" (apparently, not motivated enough to ask a reasonable price for a crack shack) and the realtor mentions, as if it's a selling point, that there are new condos up the street ("Look! There are places for non-drug dealers to live around here! really!") Why would someone want to buy a crack shack when they can get a new condo at foreclosure or from the developer for the same price or less?

Whoever took the pics and posted that was "detached" from reality.

That last photo with the toilet in, that IS daylight peeping through the corner of the room, right? Meaning the wall is probably about to fall right off?

"I was just looking for the third story bathroom, when I took a wrong turn, stepped through the wrong door... and then everything went black... How was I to know, HALF the house was missing!?!"

And that's why they took the picture of half a house.

p.s. I'd take that house over a condo. If you refinished that claw-foot tub, and gave it a real outside wall, and fixed nearly a million other things. It'd be pretty nice.

We house hunted last summer and I thought we saw some bad listings on the web...those listings look like palaces compared to these wonderful places.

Who bought the other half of the building? Fess up!

Did it split with a pink, trashy, little unattached shanty?

When 'attached' houses get a divorce...

Is this the house from Jumanji?

I love how they think if they just keep taking the pictures from the right angle they can hide the fact that one whole side of the house was basically blown away. Then it was as if they decided, "Well, we don't want anyone saying we are misrepresenting anything so we better take that side of the house too," and voila we have the real story...a giant brick eating monster came through the neighborhood and ate all the bricks on one side of the house...but never mind that, the rest of the house is great!

Thank you thank you. The pictures make MY fixer-upper a perfect house. And oh, so much cleaner than I imagined.

Hmm...owner is selling the adjoining lot. Wonder if it suffers from phantom other half of house pain?

KT said...

This one really made me laugh out loud. Maybe they could market this as half off?

Meg said...

Wait a sec. So the brick house is the "detached" house and the vacant lot next door are being sold together "as is" right? So, what's up with the grey house? Where does that figure into the equation? Or is that to show you what the brick house was detached from? IS that like "free gift with purchase"?

The "gray house" is the back of the "detached" house.

that entire property just looks SCARY!!

How could you try to sell that place for more than $20k? Just raze the building and sell the lot to a developer.

And this fine home is located in a neighborhood that has been under a sort of quarantine by the police who are checking ID's for everyone entering the area trying to reduce the number of drive-by shooting murders.

Such a deal!
