    Dude, 4 beds, 3 baths, 2,834 sq ft, for $259,900?! My stupid house is 2 bed, 2 bath 1,500 sq ft and it cost me $300,000. I don’t give a damn about that garbage bathroom, I’d buy the shit outta that house

      At first (and kind of still) I thought it was a carpeted shower. Even if it’s a bathtub, it looks more like a well with carpeted stairs leading up to it.

      Maybe a ladder inside would help?

        Yep.

        The happiest house I ever lived in had a turquoise entry with azure rose pattern carpets. A different chandellier and wallpaper in each room.

        Colour is wonderful, feeling something is wonderful. Nothing should fade into the background or be replaceable. If it’s ignorable why does it exist? We have such a brief and largely boring and miserable time alive, let it be filled with colour and emotions.

      100% agree! I would barely change most of this house - it reminds me of the houses of my relatives growing up.

    I’m getting old, man. All I see is yes, it needs some updating, but dropping 100k into it on top of the mortgage would make it pretty nice and it would still be cheaper (and nicer) than my place.

    Poor homeowner thinking their house is stupid popular with the number of views when really it’s just piling on to make fun of their design choices.

    Wow the interior design is just awful. I think whoever buys this is going drop a lot of money getting rid of the horrific wallpaper and carpets. And why does it look like the kitchen has three different sets of cabinets?

    For that price where I live that place would be snatched up in a split second, interior be damned.

    That said, most of that is cosmetic and can be cleaned up with some elbow grease. Been there and done that, I wouldn’t have a problem with buying it.

      This place would need gutting down to the studs. There is not a single fixture or cabinet which is anywhere close to acceptable.

        Unless the utilities are insufficient that might be a little drastic, especially if there’s no damage. Upgrading everything would be the only reason I’d want to demo it all. You could get away with new countertops, sinks, and appliances. Refacing the cabinets. Stripping the wallpaper (gawdamn do I hate doing that shit. Wallpaper is evil, especially when it’s multiple layers deep) and giving it a good prime and paint. The floors almost all need redoing.

        Point being it doesn’t have to be stripped down to the bones to make it look pretty good. If you want all the modern cheap trim, core doors, and Home Cheapo tile to make it look like a new tract home for no other reason than to make it look like everything else, sure. Demo away.

        Now I know what our parents felt like when they corrected me about something I would casually identify as being from “idk, the 50’s”

            If you were born in the 50’s, then yeah, you are. What of it?

            I don’t think you were though, because the whole “I’m older than you” is a trait of fairly young people who think it matters.

    I don’t think that’s actually a tub. I think it’s just a hole in the floor where the tub used to be. I’m pretty sure that’s a cut off water pipe in the back lol

      I’ll pay for the whole thing just to get rid of that damn carpet in the bathroom.

    “Honey do you think we have too much brown?”

    "Definitely. What we need is a murder carpet. And a single chair, for when we want to watch our victims bleed out.

    You might look at these pictures and suspect these are weird people, but you can’t know that for sure. That is… until you get to the dinner table with rolling chairs. Then it’s fact.
