Now, wouldn't you hate to be the lending institution stuck with these homes?
Both are surrounded by weeds. One of the homes is in need of a lot of repair. I'm not sure about the other one; it's only about five years old, but it wasn't ever really finished; some of the siding was never put on it, and some of the siding has blown off. It sits on several very weedy acres.
|Built only four or five years ago, you can see where siding has blow off. The horses are gone now.|
|The weeds were like this when the house was occupied, so we're used to that.|
One of the former owners of the property in the pictures still holes up in the vacant house at night, even though there's no electricity or water.
You gotta love our neighborhood. Our trailer house looks pretty darned fancy in comparison to these eyesores!
Anyway, these two places will sit there for a year (I don't know when their year-long waiting periods began) an open invitation to vandals, taking severe blows from the ravages of nature.
The older of the two homes has already been broken into twice.
This winter, if there's water in the pipes and hot water heaters, they will undoubtedly freeze and burst.
And there's really nobody who cares.
The mother cat I adopted is very happy with the situation; she goes mousing next door often, and brings her catch home to the youngsters.
