All you need to know



If you were going to have only one photo for a listing, would this be the one you chose? Of course! What else could people be curious about? True I can't tell what this is a photo of, but I've never been to Utah. I'm sure it makes sense to locals.

A home for the rabbits!

The water is listed as 'culinary'. I wonder if that has something to do with what I've decided is a photo of the formal dining room?

I live in Utah, and I don't get this picture either. Ogden is a lovely town, however! A lot lovelier than the picture might suggest...

Wow! I'm sooooo visiting Utah next summer!

melissa said...

hmm...I am from Utah, and this makes no sense to me. Most houses have grass, so that is not a novelty...I have nothing for you on this!

I would guess that Agent Peavler got called away on a real estate emergency before she finished the listing and a less than stellar assistant posted this on the web.

According to what I read the home contains a formal dining room, no bedrooms and no bathrooms.

While a formal dining room is nice it certainly doesn't trump bathrooms & bedrooms!

looks like they started building the basement and , for whatever reason, left off finishing up the place back in 1918...they only got 90% of the basement done...and there they put the formal dining room and a sewer pipe

that would explain the grass...thats the roof or something...no way in,

"theres a dining room under that lawn, yup there is...we forgot the stairs, yes we did, but we know the dining room is under there..."

This must be the lawn you raise your goats and cows so you can serve fine meals in your formal dining room.

It's a Magic Eye picture. If you cross your eyes from a certain angle, you can see a green house and a dolphin.

Obviously the realtor didn't know about the Utah claw of death before they went outside and tried to photograph the place. So... beware when you see signs like the one to the right !

Well Utah is a desert, so growing a lawn here can be a bit of a challenge, lots of watering and stuff, maybe they are just trying to show you it can be done...

I'm from Utah, my thoughts aren't like the other person that said Ogden was lovely. It's not bad but it isn't like the rest of Utah, it's hard to explain, it just isn't quite normal.

Vic said...

At least you know this grass is real.

Tanna said...

Uh, nice yard? Or maybe that is the best feature.

Random Person said...

Some of these are so inexplicable, I've decided to make up my own completely weird stories to explain them instead.

I believe what we have here is a house under construction. For some reason they're building it one room at a time. They did the basement, as someone already observed, and the object at upper right is the corner of the dining room section. The claw mark at right was left by the excavating machines, just getting ready to start the next section. That's why the price is so low and there's so little detail - you get to specify some of the next steps, and also pay for them. The year built is a typo. They obviously meant 2018, because it's gonna take a while doing it this way.

Truly it's God's country! See? See the godly dirt and god-grown grass?

David said...

They had financial problems finishing the house with bedrooms and bathrooms because they sent all their money to California to fight for proposition 8.

Oh, those wild and crazy Utah mormons. Defending marriage as one man and....some number of women.
