Surprisingly helpful



Yes, this picture is blurry and oddly framed. Yet from this one photo alone I know that I'm not interesting in buying this house. Thanks!

The description is surprisingly honest, yet its condition is not as bad as some of the ones listed as livable. The cost is exorbitant, which makes me very happy to live in Ohio. I could buy quite a large, lovely home, on a large lot here for what that one costs.

A steal for SF!

Love this site.

Seriously? After just ONE picture you've decided this isn't Home Sweet Home?! So what if there's a 10-yr layer of filth, a yellow toilet, and a window that was left open after what had to be a hasty escape from this odd little bathroom? It could be yours for a mere $450/sq. ft!

"Not for the faint of heart," indeed.

Excuse me while I vomit.

I knew SF real estate was crazy expensive, but not that insane. These houses that look like they've seen multiple murders creep me out. :S

Hey - don't say anything!

I ALWAYS repot my begonias in the bathroom and sometimes it gets a little messy. SO?

Stacy said...

Gross - and the other bathroom is just as bad. Where did these people clean up?

Love this blog! Keep the pics coming.

Ginger said...

I love your blog! I'm laughing at your pics, and wishing I took pics of some of the places I lived in as a teenager!!

waaaaaaaaw
is there a place like that??

Rodeo said...

No. seriously. Half a million dollars. How is that possible? I am going to show this to all my buyers who are complaining that prices are still too high in PA.

Kristen said...

Your blog is absolutely hilarious. What a great idea. I will be coming back here again and again!

How can you not like the yellow toilet seat?

Seriously, found your blog as yours is a Blog of Note and have spent the last couple of hours reading from your first post and laughing until I am crying.

Charlene said...

Hey, now come on. For that same half a million dollars you could buy an empty lot in Calgary.

But the listing site you link to says:

Property in a state of complete disrepair.

etc

Karen said...

Your blog makes me laugh. What's better than that? I hereby award you the Brilliante Weblog badge, and mentioned you in my blog. Check it out!

Maki said...

As my friend's little boy would say, "that's CACUSTING!!"

Mr. Jacob Riis and I have merely one thing in common: we both enjoy marveling at how the lower half lives (tho' for entirely different reasons, naturally). I must extend gratitude to you for providing a gruesome portrait of the filthy half. Viewing this photo-graphic image I am most grateful to belong to proper Society!

Cordially yours,

Miss Katharina van Seethinbottom

Babs said...

Yikes. "Not for the faint of heart." I'm not sure if that refers to the bathrooms or the pepto pink trim.

Anonymous said...

Guys, I'm not entirely sure the toilet is this color ON PURPOSE.

I mean, given the state of the rest of the bathroom.....

The photos just scream, "tear me down and build condos in this lot"

This makes me want to brush my teeth! ew!

Lulu LaBonne said...

I love this blog and will share the love on my own site.

Leisha Camden said...

I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth ... :-o

Fantastic! Thanks for sharing yet another gem with us. :-D

Meg said...

I'm pretty sure prison bathrooms are cleaner.

Then again, if that yellow toilet glowed in the dark, they would be pretty cool.

BikerPuppy said...

Is that a grave in the back yard?

PollyAnna said...

I think that toilet seat is one of those glow-in-the-dark novelties!

Is that stuff what I think it is...?

I WANT A YELLOW TOILET! I swear...

Are you sure this picture is not from Alcatraz?

Reminds me of the apartment complex I use to run. The city had a clogged sewer line so someone got the bright idea to blow it out with compressed air. They had to pay for professional cleaning of over 30 apartments. Looked alot like this!

Oh god my eyes, pass the scrubbing pads, even my eyes are dirty!
